Gracious and elegant village in the Blue Mountains famous for its gardens.
Mount Wilson is located 8 km north of Bell’s Line of Road and 126 km west of Sydney. It is a charming and gracious village with many beautiful cold climate gardens nestled in the Australian bush nestled in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area
Exploring the Gardens
The best strategy for any visitor is to get out of the car and start walking. The experience of the town is the experience of its gardens, its avenues of trees, its lookouts and its walking trails and picnic areas. The time to visit Mount Wilson is either spring or autumn. At these times many of the locals open their gardens – some of which are over 100 years old – to the public.
Of particular note are Church Avenue, Queen’s Avenue and The Avenue with their rows of plane trees, limes, elms, beeches, liquidambars and pink cherries.
