Located just 8 km north of Bell’s Line of Road and 126 km west of Sydney, is the basalt capped ridge Mount Wilson, a charming village in the Blue Mountains, with many beautiful cold climate gardens nestled in the Australian bush.

The best time to visit is during spring or autumn. At these times many of the locals open their gardens to the public, with some of the gardens over 100 years old. A great place for a leisurely stroll, children will love it during the autumn, playing in the thick blanket of fallen autumn leaves.

Check out Mt Wilson’s Church Avenue, Queen’s Avenue and The Avenue with their rows of plane, limes, elms, beeches, liquidambars and pink cherries trees.

Playing in the autumn leaves, Mount Wilson.Mount Wilson is also less than 25 km from another spectacular garden, the Mount Tomah Botanic Garden.

Today, the village of Mount Wilson is famous for the fact that between 1912 and 1937 Patrick White’s parents lived in a house called Withycombe, that still stands and is located on the corner of The Avenue and Church Avenue. In his book “Flaws in the Glass”, White recalled his time at Mount Wilson in terms of “gullies crackling with smoky silence, rocks threatening to explode, pools so cold that the breath was cut off inside your ribs as you hung suspended like the corpse of a pale frog”.
