Closed now until August 10th - after which Wildwood Garden will be open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday from 10 am to 4 pm for Camellia - Spring season beginning Friday, August 10th, 2018 & continuing to Monday, November 5th, 2018.

Closed until 10th August - thank you to all our visitors who have enjoyed the garden this autumn. We are now closed for six weeks & will be open for Camellia/Spring season from Friday, August 10th

Wildwood is a garden in Bilpin which has been developing for more than 30 years due to the efforts & skills of Wayne & Sue Tapping who bought the land in the early eighties.

They chose the name Wildwood as their plan was to make a formal garden without losing the wildness of the native landscape. They have decided that the property has now got to the stage that it should be available for everyone to appreciate.

Situated in the heart of Bilpin amid the orchards & tall trees of the Blue Mountains it is a large garden many would love to explore.

It is not just a place to wander in and enjoy the plantings as it has a café with fabulous views, a gift shop & specialist nursery with treasures propogated from plants in the garden.

There is a cherry walk, dogwoods & other blossom trees, camellias, azaleas, massed clivia, & hellebore, hydrangea, deciduous trees that are spectacular in autumn & ferns that surround a magnificent waterfall with ponds.

There is also a large lake surrounded by lawns & topiary where you can picnic. It has sweeping views, deep volcanic soil, bore water & is a delightful place to visit at any time of year.

They began this garden more than 30 years ago & also opened a retail nursery at nearby North Richmond. The Nursery closed in 2010, allowing the couple to pursue their dream of an open garden with gift shop, nursery & café.

This 5 hectare garden nestles among 10ha of towering native trees. It is set on a gentle slope with broad, crushed granite paths that meander beside a waterfall & ponds then beneath the trees & across sweeping lawns to a tranquil lake. Seats are scattered throughout to encourage visitors to relax & enjoy the atmosphere.

Wildwood’s café serve morning & afternoon teas, snacks & light lunches with delicious sandwiches, salads, cakes, pastries & season specials. There is a selection of homemade goodies which are scrumptious but be sure not to miss out on the Wildwood’s very own homemade apple pie – it is just so delicious. Enjoy a panoramic view over the garden from the café verandah. Visitors are also welcome to picnic by the lake.

The Gift shop and nursery is well stocked with appealing gift ware & local products. The nursery has a range of plants, many of which are propagated from those which are growing in the garden including some rare & unusual finds. You are sure to find something special here
