Incredible Sights, Sounds & Smells
Mount Wilson Gardens know how to do spring. Hundreds of beautiful fragrant blooms dominate these stunning private gardens, many of which are open to public. If you want to experience spring at its best, then plan a trip to Mount Wilson during September or October.

Many of these exotic gardens are open all year round, but spring and autumn are the most popular seasons, when the gardens are most colourful. You will find incredible avenues of trees, amazing lookouts, walking trails and picnic areas.

Some gardens open to the public include:
Yengo Sculpture Gardens (Queens Avenue, Mount Wilson),
Nooroo (Church Lane, Mount Wilson),
Breenhold (The Avenue, Mount Wilson),
Windyridge (Queens Avenue, Mount Wilson)
Bebeah (The Avenue, Mount Wilson)
Merry Garth (Davies Lane, Mount Wilson)

For a small fee, you can enter the gardens and wander around for hours or enjoy a quiet picnic.

The best way to get to the gardens is by car, however, you can also take a garden tour with TCP Garden Tours, which depart Katoomba Railway station every Saturday at 9.30am.

If you enjoy walking, there are many easy walks of short duration or more difficult and longer walks including:

The Mount Wilson Village Walk
A Walk Along The Avenue
Around The Village
The Waterfalls
Pheasants Cave
Wynnes Rocks
Cathedral of Ferms

and many more. Find out more information about Mount Wilson walks

In addition to the walks, Mount Wilson offers incredible lookouts:

Wynnes Rocks and DuFaurs Rocks
Marcus Clark Reserve
Waterfall Reserve
Happy Valley
Sloan Reserve

For something different why not try camping, canyoning, pick your own walnuts and chestnuts or go bird watching.

If you'd like to spend a few nights in the Gardens, you will find cottages, B&Bs and retreats. Find out more details about Mount Wilson accommodation.

For an incredible spring, head over to Mount Wilson Gardens. You will be spoilt by mother nature's incredible sights, smells and sounds.
