The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah will remain closed until 13 January while there is ongoing bushfire activity in the area.
We are still assessing the extent of the damage, however the impact on some parts of the Garden appears to be significant.
Thankfully, most of the Garden’s Living Collection along with the main buildings are safe at the moment.
We at the Garden are extremely grateful to our local staff, the local community, the emergency service personnel and the volunteers who are dedicating their time and efforts to dealing with the devastating bushfires.
Some areas of the Garden are temporarily closed for bushfire recovery. If you’re visiting, please refer to this map:
