104 acres of beauty just 500 metres from Olinda Village
The National Rhododendron Gardens are host to brilliantly coloured blooms of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, cherries and daffodils. Seasonal changes ensure the gardens are a delight all year around.
When not in bloom, you can still soak in the beauty of rich bark textures, seed capsules, foliage shapes and beautiful fragrance as you stroll through the grounds.
The Garden Explorer is a bus tour through the park offering a 20 minute tour of gardens during the spring peak flowering season (mid September to mid November). It provides a comfortable and protected vantage point to passengers sitting high to better view the magnificent garden.
Weddings & Wedding Photography
While the beautiful National Rhododendron Gardens provide the perfect venue for your wedding ceremony or wedding photography bookings are required and a permit needs to be issued (see the related publications section below for current pricing and permit applications). Upon inquiry we suggest you visit the gardens venue to view and select the site where you would like to have your ceremony.
