Blue Mountains Kitchen Garden

Our Gardens

Parklands Country Garden & Lodges are situated within the 28-acre heritage property which adjoins the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park in Blackheath. The splendour of Parklands is almost overwhelming as you drive through the sweeping gates leading off Govetts Leap Road. The driveway, lined with old pines, cypresses and Japanese maples that were planted over one hundred years ago, takes you past glorious flower beds and sweeping green lawns to reveal a luxurious homestead and intimate garden cottages in the traditional Blue Mountains weatherboard style.

Following the vision of the late Thomas Kerslake, Parklands Country Garden and Lodges has developed its own private Blue Mountains organic kitchen garden within the grounds External Cottage spring
