Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah

Blue Mountains Major Attractions


Specialising in cool climate plants from Australia and around the world, Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah features more than 6,000 species spread across 28 hectares of cultivated land as well as an additional 244 hectares of wilderness.


Located on the Bells Line of Road – the quieter, ‘road less travelled’ route from Sydney to the Upper Mountains via Richmond - the garden is, at an altitude of 1000 metres, not only the highest botanic garden in Australia but also one of only two in the world located within a World Heritage-listed area.

For road-trippers wanting to explore the Blue Mountains in all its glory, the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden offers a comprehensive “one stop shop” experience, with every broad attraction of the region covered.

There are incredible views, both of the escarpment and sweeping vistas towards Sydney; cool, fresh, clean air; magnificent Australian wildlife, including more than 150 native bird species; and glorious seasonal colour, from spring blossoms to the changing foliage in autumn.

The gardens are a lovely place to picnic, whatever the season, with tables, shelters, barbecues and lawns where children can run amok.

For visitors who’d like to linger a little longer, accommodation is available within the grounds, with two self-contained houses – the four-bedroom Jungle Lodge, accommodating up to 10 guests in an exclusive private area of the garden; and the newly-renovated Camellia Cottage, which, as the name suggests, looks out over the spectacular camellia reserve.
