Campell Rhododendron Gardens in Blackheath Survive the Fires

The Campbell Rhododendron Gardens in Blackheath are NOW OPEN. They are one of the Blue Mountains’ most favourite venues where, uniquely, Azalea and Rhododendrons are planted amongst the native eucalypts and bushland.

Covering 18.5 hectares of mountain bushland, the Gardens boasts exotic plants like rhododendrons, azaleas and maples, as well as native varieties.

The gardens are gorgeous all year round, with each season offering something different.

While the recent fire has decimated their native bushland and about one-third of the Gardens area. And with all this glorious rain, the lake is full.

They have a plan, but the recovery will take time, person-power and money. However, some azaleas, bless them, have started to bloom again as though nothing has happened.
