Blackheath, the Rhododendron Capital of Australia.
It is one of the areas in Australia for growing rhodendrums. Each year in early November they burst out into flower and make a magnificent display of colours. Tourists from far and wide flock here and the “Rhodo” festival attracts huge crowds every year. The display is at its best for only a few weeks although there are plenty of plants flowering in late October to Early December.
During the festival we often take a quick detour to Blackheath on our Blue Mountains Tour. Of course on our Private Blue Mountains tour we encourage the small groups to pay a visit and include on an itinerary.
