Hard to believe it is free to visit. Not a huge garden but you can certainly fill your day. Take a picnic or enjoy the lovely restaurant onsite. A peaceful gem just out of Bilpin.

We drove up to Bilpin to pick fresh apples and then continue up the mountains to visit botanic garden. There is a restaurant there with amazing views, which we wanted to visit- but unfortunately it was completely booked out.

Thank you for your review. The colour in the Garden during autumn is a crowd pleaser...if you can make a time to return to the Garden in each season, you will be pleasantly surprised at how much the Garden changes throughout the year.

Fantastic gardens to go for a stroll around in with surprisingly, free entry! You can easily spend a few hours, if not a whole day here just enjoying nature. Definitely worth the drive from Sydney!
