It’s bloom time at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden! As winter shifts into spring, surround yourself in more than 50,000 yellow, pink and white daffodils.
This is the largest planting to date with an additional 183 cultivars of Daffodils added to this year’s display bringing the total to over 520 different cultivars to admire as you walk through the picturesque Brunet Meadow.
Join a guided tour with our horticulturalists, follow the self-guided Daffodil Discovery Walk, take the Garden Shuttle to marvel in the glorious blooms, or enjoy the vista over a BBQ at the Brunet Pavilion. For the complete Daffodil Festival experience, stay in our new Camellia Cottage accommodation and enjoy the spring lunch menu at The Potager restaurant against a backdrop of World Heritage Area views.
There is a long history of cultivating daffodils at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden. Alfred and Effie Brunet, the original owners of the site the Garden is on, grew cut flowers there from about 1934 to 1968 and imported many daffodil cultivars.
Lots of the daffodils you can see at the Garden are from their original bulbs — those planted by the Brunets and some supplied back to the Garden as gifts from neighbours who had initially received their stock from Alfred and Effie.
Over the past few years, many more daffodils have been planted by the Garden’s horticulturists. Now during spring, you can see over 65 cultivars of daffodils at the Garden. Please pick up a map from the Visitor Centre to show you where to find them.
This year you can enjoy over 75 daffodil cultivars at the Garden as well as the Daffodil Discovery Walk and the Growing Bulbs workshop.
