About Parklands Country Garden & Lodges

Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges is a secluded country retreat set within 28 acres of beautifully manicured grounds, reminiscent of a European great estate, with its haven of beauty and tranquillity whilst offering a secluded and relaxed atmosphere. Situated in one of Australia’s most beautiful destinations, the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains and with the picturesque Grose Valley and Govetts Leap lookout right at your doorstep, Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges is only 130 km west of Sydney, travel by car takes approximately 2 hours.

Our History

Historical Blue Mountains estate Karaweera, developed by businessman John Pope in the late 19th century, featured extensive gardens, orchards, a swimming pool, and more. After his death in 1912, his son Parke Pope added a golf course. In the 1990s, it became Parklands Country Gardens and Lodges, restored to its former glory with new amenities, including a spa, conference facility, and a vast private kitchen garden.

Our Gardens

Nestled within a sprawling 28-acre heritage estate that seamlessly merges with the majestic World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains National Park in the charming enclave of Blackheath, you will discover the enchanting haven of Parklands Country Garden and Lodges. A grand entrance through the stately gates off Govetts Leap Road beckons you into a realm of opulence. As you meander along the driveway, flanked by ancient pines and cypresses, standing sentinel for over a century, you are greeted by resplendent flower beds and verdant lawns that gracefully unveil a luxurious homestead and intimate garden cottages, elegantly reminiscent of the classic Blue Mountains weatherboard architecture.
