What's On

A huge weekend for cool climate garden lovers in the Hawkesbury.  Head up the Bell's Line of Road to Bilpin, Mt Tomah and Mt Wilson for spring blossoms at their best.

We recommend starting your weekend by visiting Wildwood Gardens at Bilpin.  The two hectare garden is stunning at the moment and you'll enjoy relaxing in the tranquil grounds.  About 10 minutes further up the road the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens is holding their popular Wild About Waratahs Festival.  Event activities include waratah bloom competitions, local waratah farms open to the public, workshops, plant sales and flower arrangements.

Finally your garden weekend isn't complete without a visit to Mt Wilson.  It's the annual Mt Wilson Spring Blossom Festival with eight private gardens throwing their gates open to the public.  This very special event only happens once a year - blossoms, bulbs and spring flowers guaranteed!  All entry fees will be donated to the local bushfire brigade.
