  • A lovely walk and day trip. The rose garden was in full bloom when I went. It makes for wonderful photos. There aren't many tourists on the weekdays. The car park is a little cramped and the cafe out front serves limited options. If you can, it's worth it to bring a picnic. A visitors center at entrance to the garden is extremely informative on a number of subjects including ecology, indigenous and colonial history, species identification, geography and regional places of interest. There's also a pretty good view from the back as well.
  • The Mount Tomah botanical gardens in the Blue Mountains National Park is an amazing place to visit. This garden sits on 252 hectares of land with 28 hectares open to the public and is home to 21,000 plants and 900 species and is focused on the conservation of cool climate plants. Spring in this garden is particularly colourful when flowering shrubs and trees and flower beds are in bloom. Autumn is often awash with deciduous trees are changing colour before dropping their spring and summer foliage. The view from the visitors centre veranda is also brilliant on a clear day.
  • Never fails to take one's breath away. The gardens are stunning. I've been visiting since I was a child and now I have brought my own bub (I'm pretty sure you'll find the softest grass in the world here, and little ones will love crawling and rolling in it). Whether you're a tourist or local it's definitely a must see. For tourists coming from Sydney, it's definitely worth the drive. Skip the motorway and take one of the more picturesque routes found in Google Maps. Make a day of it, relax and see a side of Australia that you won't get anywhere else. For parents you will find change tables are available in the disabled/parent bathrooms (there are two located in the main foyer). There is ramp access to most areas of the garden but for ease of exploring I'd recommend an ergo baby or sling. The restaurant and kiosk were both happy to warm bottles and I found the new restaurant to be extremely accommodating of our little one. In fact, I cannot speak highly enough of the service at the restaurant. Book a table outside; the view is spectacular.
  • Visited the gardens for the first time today and it was beautiful and breath taking! Unfortunately we didn't have that great an experience with the lady in charge of the gardens today. She never once smiled at the visitors and she was harsh with my kid and at my husband. The gardens was relaxing but I couldn't help feeling stressed when in the entrance and at the exhibit area as the lady kept staring and shooting unfriendly looks at us.
  • Such an awesome place. The nature here is truly untouched. The most simple of flora and fauna that can be seen in the vast expanse of land. The wondrous nature at its best. Needles to say the experience is very outstanding.
