The Blue Mountains are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The slate-blue haze, that gives the mountains their name, comes from the fine oil mist that the eucalyptus trees secrete. The foothills of the mountains begin 65km inland from Sydney and then rise to a sandstone plateau interspersed with valleys.
Drawing from the great traditions of European landscape design as well as the unique Blue Mountains bushland, Everglades Gardens will charm with its grace and beauty.
Constructed in the 1930s by Danish-born landscape gardener Paul Sorensen in conjunction with owner Henri van de Velde, Everglades Gardens is Australia's most spectacular inter-war period garden and has received acclaim from garden lovers worldwide.
