Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah
The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mount Tomah is Australia's premier cool-climate botanic garden.
The Garden covers 28 hectares on the summit of a basalt-capped peak, at 1,000 metres above sea level and is perfectly situated in the World Heritage Listed Greater Blue Mountains of New South Wales. With sweeping vistas over the mountains and more than 40,000 native, exotic and rare plants, the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden is a dream to visit at any time of year.
Plants are grouped by geographical origin. This is unusual for a botanic garden and allows visitors to spot the similarities and differences between plants of each region...a 'snapshot' of their evolution on different continents.
