WILDWOOD GARDEN IS NOW CLOSED UNTIL AUTUMN 2024.
The garden is open twice a year for spring (August, September, October and the first week of November) and autumn (March, April, May and first weekend of June). During those open periods we open four days a week on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10am-4pm (for all open dates see here). During our open times we also stage specialist flower shows with salvias in April and camellias in August. To keep up to date, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our seasonal .

Garden lovers are invited to visit this magnificent Bilpin garden. Lovingly crafted over 40 years by Wayne and Sue Tapping, the garden presents a glorious collection of cool climate plants in a natural woodland setting.
The garden features a cherry walk in peak flower in mid September, a fragrant daphne hedge and a magnificent waterfall with ponds as well as a large lake. There are sweeping views across the garden, gravel paths and well-placed sculptures including a magnificent sandstone sofa. The bird life is abundant and the mountain air is fresh and exhilarating. There is something in bloom to enjoy through out the year in this garden that features many rare and unusual plants. Autumn is colourful as our deciduous trees and shrubs change from green to red, orange and yellow. As winter draws to an end and spring arrives so does the flower colour as trees, shrubs, climbers, bulbs and perennials burst into bloom. The Wildwood camellias are beautiful right through late winter and spring as are the blossom trees. To browse some of garden's 600 camellia varieties see 'Camellias at Wildwood' (under Imagery) or click on this link.
As spring warms to summer, the roses and perennials begin to bloom filling the garden with yet more colour and scent.
While you are at the garden browse the gift shop and nursery. The gift shop has an exciting selection of decorative ornaments, gifts and furnishings, while the small nursery features plants propagated from those in the garden along with seasonal colour and natives.
We can also serve cups of tea or coffee and light refreshments including scones, cakes and homemade apple pie with cream. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden.
