The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden is home to hectares of natural woodland and alpine rainforest areas.
The areas help showcase many varieties of pines and other trees that call cool, moist mountain rainforest regions home.
Ancient conifer species and cultivars from around the world, some over 50 metres high, contrast with dwarf and coloured forms.
Our conifers and cultivars include the Wollemi Pine (wollemia nobilis) and giant Redwoods.
Gondwana was the single, super-continent that made up the earth's southern landmass before separating 60-80 million years ago.
This walk takes you underneath towering Brown Barrel Eucalypts where you will learn about species of plants in the garden that trace their origins back to this pre-historic time.
The Gondwana Walk also features Wollemi Pines, Southern Beeches and flowering species like the Chilean Bell Flower.
At the Garden you will find a number of woodland areas featuring trees and plants from different geographic areas.
Wander through the Eurasian Woodland amongst the Oaks and Birch trees, stopping for a picnic in the De Ferranti Shelter.
The Australian Woodland brings the textures of local gum trees, while in the Southern Hemisphere Woodland you can experience the cool greens of southern beeches.
In autumn, the North American Woodland comes to life with rich, warm colours.
