Our Gardens

Silvermere’s 5500 sq metre of heritage listed gardens feature a range of cool climate exotics and natives. Clear winter skies and bare trees allow spectacular views of the Blue Mountains National Park and the distant lights of Sydney. 

Spring is heralded by an abundance of daffodils, followed by blue bells, irises and other bulbs. Mid to late September sees a spectacular display of rhododendrons that were planted in the 1950s as well as cherry and crab apple blossoms.

In summer the gardens and lawns are green and lush with occasional colour from roses and daylilies and our many native trees. Old liquid ambers probably dating from the 1920s provide wonderful autumn colour. We have been restoring the gardens originally with help from the late Richard Ratcliff (who revitalised the Everglades at Leura), and more recently Vladimir Sitta.
