Mt Wilson Spring Blossom Festival
The Avenue, Mount Wilson, NSW, 2786, Australia
23rd September 2017 to 24th September 2017
The Mt Wilson and Mt Irvine Rural Fire Brigade in the Blue Mountains will hold a Spring Blossom Festival in Mt Wilson over the weekend of September 23 and 24 . These mountain villages are well-known for their beautiful displays of spring blossom, bulbs, rhododendrons and azaleas, both in private gardens and in roadside plantings, against a backdrop of magnificent natural bushland and rainforest. Eight private gardens will be open over the weekend to raise essential funds for the local Rural Fire Brigade. Several of the gardens have rarely been open to the public. Open gardens are Bisley, Breenhold, Carmarthen (Saturday only), Hawthorn Hill (Sunday only), Merry Garth, Nooroo, Sefton Cottage, and Withycombe. The Village Hall will feature an exhibition of photography, paintings and sculpture inspired by the local area. A cash-only café featuring home-cooked food and a sausage sizzle will be provided by RFS volunteers. Details and booking for open gardens and activities available through the website. Please note that there are no petrol stations or ATMs in Mt Wilson.
