The Campbell Rhododendron Gardens at Blackheath, about 120 kilometres west of Sydney, cover an area of 18.3 hectares (45 acres) and comprise both exotic plantings of rhododendrons, azaleas, maples and other deciduous trees and pristine native bushland. They are a place for the enjoyment of nature's beauty and exuberance in her diversity.
Open all year round, the gardens are at their spectacular best in October and early November and also in April for the autumn colours.
Allow at least an hour to stroll along the easy walking tracks of these lovely gardens. Take your picnic basket and rug down to the valley on a fine day and enjoy what is a gem of the Blue Mountains with family and friends.
The Lodge Tea Rooms are open from the end of September till the beginning of November for the best "Devonshire" Teas in the Blue Mountains!
Come along for a walk through the wonderful colour displays, take photos from the lakeside lookout to capture the stunning reflections in the lake and appreciate the beautiful view from an accessible lookout.
The Gardens, with parking available, are situated near the Great Western Highway and within walking distance from Blackheath railway station.
