Spring Itinerary

The freeze has thawed, the landscape has awakened from its Winter slumber and delicate baby green fronds have poked through the soil.

Sploshes of vibrant colour dot the scenery in the blood red of waratah stands in the bush; buttery daffodil drifts in public spaces; and the famous cherry trees of Leura Mall, Campbell Rhododendron Gardens of Blackheath and manicured azalea groves of Mt Wilson and priceless public collection at Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mt Tomah on the OTHER Blue Mountains along the Bells Line of Rd.
Immerse yourself in the blooming kaleidoscope of the Blue Mountains in Spring.
