I adore Autumn in Sydney, probably because green and orange are two of my favourite colours and there certainly is an abundance of both around nature. From the Autumn foliage changing colour and crisping up to the glorious sunsets bathing our beautiful city.
A beautiful reminder of both these colours occur only an hour and half drive west of Sydney. Mt Tomah Botanical Garden is situated at the gateway of the Blue Mountains on the Bells Line of Road. We decided to make the most of our midweek public holiday on ANZAC day by taking a day trip to the beautiful region passing Bilpin to go apple picking and onto the gardens to admire the landscape, be one with nature and get a kick out of stepping on as many dried up crunchy leaves as possible.
With the cooler weather ahead of us, I highly recommend my Sydneysiders head West. Go now! It is such a beautiful place this time of the year. Go now, before the leaves drop and trees go bare.

How beautiful! I love the colour of the trees in Autumn. It’s like artwork isn’t it?
It certainly is artwork done by the beautiful artist Mother Nature herself 😉
A glorious place at a glorious time of the year! Thanks for the photos! My first marital family owned the largest apple farm [‘Tarapark’] at Bilpin and iIbrought up my whole family there . . . truly beautiful, don’t think we appreciated it enough at the time!!
Oh wow, Eha how lovely that would’ve been growing up amongst the orchards!
what stunning pics! It has been a life time since I was in the Blue Mountains – we went for a day hike and I loved the colours and quiet 🙂
It’s such a beautiful part of the world x
What a great reminder to visit Mount Tomah! It has been way too long since my last visit 🙂
You really should get there Lorraine before the Autumn leaves fall!
These photos are making me itch to get on a plane and retire there! wow!
You really must come one day 🙂 I’d love to meet my fellow foodies!
Thank you for stopping by my blog so that I can discover the wonderful space you have here. I love fall colors, there is something about the shades of red and orange in the leaves that is so comforting!
Thanks Sawsan, it really is a beautiful time of the year isn’t it?! I look forward to getting to know you through the bloggasphere 🙂
