Breenhold Gardens, located at Mount Wilson in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, is just 2 hours’ drive west of Sydney, and comprises 45 hectares of luxurious gardens, parkland and native bushland.
The timing of the flowering in Spring of individual species, and similarly the timing of the leaf colour change of the deciduous trees in Autumn will vary somewhat from year to year, depending on the variability of temperatures, rainfall, and the impacts of wind and storms which can detach autumn leaves from the trees.
Six individual stone walled gardens, “gardens within gardens”, several with pools, are focus points for the thousands of visitors who keep returning to Breenhold each year.
It was created by the late Thomas Breen (Snr) and his wife Charlotte and its planting and landscaping commenced in 1965. Over the intervening 6 decades many thousands of exotic and indigenous trees and flowering shrubs have been planted, their origins representing every continent.
The unique heritage listed Garden Estate of Breenhold at Mount Wilson is one of the most extensive privately owned garden properties in Australia.
We will have to return in November to see the Wisteria in full bloom.
