How’s the Serenity?

Spring is the perfect time of year to visit The Campbell Rhododendron Gardens Blackheath! This is when the Rhododendrons are in their most vivid and spectacular beauty.

On sunny days – and even when the weather is cold – the (COVID safe) Rhododendron Gardens Blackheath are a wonderful place to stroll with family and friends, or with your dogs (on leads). 

What To Expect at Campbell Rhododendron Gardens Blackheath

Enjoy a divine array of flowers, a stunning vista across the Valley and lake from the lookout platform and breathe in and relax as you absorb the fresh Blackheath air. All set within one of the local’s favourite Gardens in the Blue Mountains National Park.

The Rhodo Tea Room

Regretfully, at this stage, due to CORONA-19 safety restrictions, the Tea Room/Lodge will not be open this year. Please check the Rhododendron Gardens Facebook Page and Website for up to date information, decisions regarding COVID safety and the possibility of opening the Tea Room closer to Spring.

This Spring, the Rhododendron Gardens Blackheath will ‘meet-and-greet’ visitors and sell their NEW 2021 calendar and a few souvenirs at the Information Kiosk.

During prime flowering time in early October to mid-November, the Campbell Rhododendron Gardens’ meeting house, The Lodge, springs to life and transforms into the Rhodo Tea Room.  From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm (last orders 3:30 pm), 7 days a week for 5 weeks, volunteers serve freshly-brewed coffee, a variety of teas, delicious scones with jam and cream and other tasty treats. No lunch is served at the Rhodo Tea Room. If you have a group of 10 or more coming to enjoy afternoon tea at the Rhodo Tea Room, please book ahead.

Relish the fresh air, the peace and the beauty.  Bring a picnic basket and rug from home and stock up on gourmet treats from local businesses in the Village to make your picnic hamper.
