Wildwood Gardens

Wildwood is owned by plant enthusiasts Wayne and Sue Tapping (pictured above), who have been developing the garden since 1980 when they bought 10 hectares (25 acres) of land at Bilpin in Sydney's Blue Mountains. Most of the sloping site was densely covered with mature trees and black wattle scrub, but there were some open spaces.
As well as a beautiful site, the area has deep volcanic soil and access to bore water making it a wonderful place to make a garden. Sue's plan was to create a formal garden without losing the wildness of the native landscape. Hence the name for the garden of Wildwood!

The Tappings have a deep passion for plants and growing. They ran a garden centre at near by North Richmond along with a growing nursery at Kurrajong for many years and also operated a nursery at South Windsor. Indeed, they only closed Wayne's Home and Garden in 2010 when the site was sold.
Over the years many of the plants from their retail and growing nurseries have found their way into the garden. Sue is also a collector of cool climate perennials  and shrubs, including hellebores, clivias, magnolias, camellias and hydrangeas. They have also amassed a collection of cool climate trees including maples and dogwoods. There is something exciting to be found in flower throughout the year.

The first planting was the weeping cherry walk, inspired by a trip to Melbourne buying plants for their nursery. Sue recalls that Wayne was taken with a row of weeping cherries in one of the nurseries they visited in the Dandenongs.
On his return to Bilpin, he set about planting nine pink weeping cherries (Prunus subhirtella 'Rosea', pictured above), which today are under planted with hellebores to present a breathtaking picture in early spring with the trees bloom.

Australian Botanic Gardens and Darryl Lea Chocolate Factory Day Tour

The sensation of the late 18th century in the field of botany was the discovery of a new continent filled with exotic plants unknown to the rest of the world. The Australian Botanic Garden displays around 2000 of these, set in 416 hectares of hills and lakes. The Garden features outdoor sculptures, free gas barbecues, a restaurant and a gift shop which sells plants. The Australian Botanic Garden is a major event venue and the most popular visitor attraction in the Camden district.
From humble beginnings selling sweets from a pushcart, and later to a small factory under the first arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Darrell Lea, named after the original Lea family's youngest son, has spent decades creating the finest chocolates and yummiest confectionery.

Still a 100% family owned company, our master confectioners pride themselves on making fresh quality treats, including Soft Eating Liquorice and Rocklea Road®, just two of the unique products we have perfected since first introducing them to our shops in the 1950's. It's this commitment to our products that ensures Darrell Lea is still one of the original Aussie brands, determined to be a name you can trust and enjoy for years to come. Hungry to learn more about Darrell Lea? Navigate through our delicious website to discover the wonders of Darrell Lea.
