  • Such a fantastic place. Been up there twice now, once to view as a potential wedding venue and another to take my grandma up there whilst visiting from NZ. Glad to say, nan loved it & I can't wait to head up there a few more times. This may become our monthly Sunday drive or something of the sort, just lovely.
  • Mount Tomah, a spectacular garden no matter what season of the year. It is a hidden gem of Blue Mountains and our favourite and a perfect getaway to recharge our batteries from day to day routine life. We enjoy a walk around the gardens which has beautiful seasonal vibrant flowers all year around and birds especially king parrots and much much more. I wish there was a cosy cafe for casual dining in the gardens that cater more teas, coffees, cakes, pies, icecreams etc at reasonable prices. Tomah restaurant indeed has good quality food but it is quite pricey. Thanks to the management/staff of Mt Tomah garden for their hard work in keeping the garden beautiful all year around!!
  • An amazing experience especially during Autumn season. The fall colours will make you spell bound. To explore the whole park you will need to come here many times but you could spend half a day here and also plenty of seating options and a dedicated lunch and Barbecue area. The trees and plants are magnificent and this is a very clean and organised park. If you come during winter season you can pick up chest nuts which fall from the trees. Make sure you come prepared with a back pack as the trip back to your car may not be to your liking. There are 2 big ponds as well. Great place for photography and also a favourite for macro photographers who can shoot the big roses.
  • A beautiful setting for a cool climate alpine garden, with a wide range of different environments to enjoy. This is a perfect destination for a family outing, a day trip, or even (in my case) a proposal! The colours in autumn are just phenomenal. I'd like to thank the rangers for their hard work and dedication to the place, too. It's a fantastic gem nestled in the iconic Blue Mountains, and I'd highly recommend it. I look forward to my next visit!
  • It's a great place to visit. Just beautiful even out of season. But bring your own coffee and picnic coz the cafe's not much chop , terrible coffee.
