Trip Planner: Australia / New South Wales / Blue Mountains / Mount Tomah / The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden
In 2017 we celebrate the 30th Birthday of the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden. The Garden has a wonderfully interesting history, founded on the traditional land of the Gundungarra and Darug Aboriginal people which in 1804 was traversed by explorer George Caley on a botanic collecting trip.To visit The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden on your trip to Mount Tomah, use our Mount Tomah trip builder tool .
The Garden sits on 252 hectares of land with 28 hectares open to the public and is home to 21,000 plants and 900 species.
The Garden is the only botanic garden in the world in a World Heritage Area and is focused on the conservation of cool climate plants. Over the next five years we are revisiting, and returning The Garden to the original vision for the site while aspiring to be the model garden for sustainable practices on a global stage.
Our educational, cultural and artistic events including exhibitions and workshops are set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Garden, reflecting the stunning surrounds.
We are located under 2-hours’ drive from the Sydney airport and less than an hour from Penrith and Richmond.

Amazing views from the restaurant! Heard it was a nice spot but did not expect those views. Food was tasty and service was very friendly. Had the tasting plate, apple pie and scones.

Cute place! Makes for a great pit stop on the beautiful Bells Line of Road! Free to roam around and appreciate the tranquility. The place is also popular with bird watchers.
