Daffodil Festival

The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden



Event information

The annual Daffodil Festival celebrates this beautiful yellow flower, which is one of the first bulbs to appear as winter eases into spring.

There is a long history of cultivating daffodils at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden. Alfred and Effie Brunet, the original owners of the site the Garden is on, grew cut flowers there from about 1934 to 1968 and imported many daffodil cultivars.

Lots of the daffodils you can see at the Garden are from their original bulbs — those planted by the Brunets and some supplied back to the Garden as gifts from neighbours who had initially received their stock from Alfred and Effie.

Over the past few years, many more daffodils have been planted by the Garden’s horticulturists. Now during spring, you can see over 65 cultivars of daffodils at the Garden. Please pick up a map from the Visitor Centre to show you where to find them.

This year you can enjoy over 75 daffodil cultivars at the Garden as well as the Daffodil Discovery Walk and the Growing Bulbs workshop.
