Blue Mountains Clifftop Wall2022 Blue Mountains Tours with Stuart Read
New dates
Tuesday 5 – Thursday 7 April 2022
and
Tuesday 3 – Thursday 5 May 2022

Stuart Read leads tours departing and returning to Sydney. Both will be 3-days, 2-nights (staying in Katoomba). We will visit a range of private and public gardens. Some were on the first AGHS tour out of Sydney in 1981, like Everglades at Leura, and high-Victorian Wynstay at Mount Wilson. They aim to give an idea of the diversity and challenges of mountain gardens. Each is limited to 48 people.

The mountains suffered shocking fires over 2019-2020. What is remarkable is the erratic impacts and bounce-back to life, with rains and time. A good opportunity to visit 2 years on, and better understand the resilience of nature and gardeners.

Participants will learn something of fire-centred ecology, with eucalypts depending on it for a clear ash bed to germinate seed. The Blue Mountains are World-Heritage-listed for their eucalypt diversity as a core heritage value.
