We stumbled onto this historic house after a hike. I enjoyed it, but there really isn't much to see and it felt really expensive for what it was. Honestly, if I'd skipped it, I don't think I'd have missed anything particularly remarkable.
If you want to be surrounded by nothing but green, this is the place to go! Kids love it and the grounds are extensive. They run delightful events all year round. The kids favourite has to be the Easter Egg hunt and games event!
We really enjoyed our visit to Everglades. The gardens are varied and beautiful - we went at the beginning of winter and I can only imagine how stunning it would be with spring flowers and cherry blossoms! Great views of the Blue Mountains. We had a nice cream tea at the house and stopped at the gift shop, too.
Spectacular gardens, beautiful hiking trails and stunning views! So much to see that you will need a full day there. The tea and scones were absolutely delicious too, and I am sure the rest of the homemade cakes and desserts are just as tasty. There are also savoury options 😊 Will definitely be returning on multiple occasions. There is wheelchair access, but slightly difficult to get to the cafe - stairs were a slight issue, but a lovely place all the same.
Really lovely location any time of the year. Nice tea room as well
The gardens are lovely, if a bit lacking in flowers this time of year. The house was a bit disappointing, though. Definitely worth a visit for the gardens alone, especially in spring and later in autumn. The little secret areas like the lookout and the grotto pool are lovely, as is the hidden bridge at the top of the waterfall. Adult entry is only $13, so it's worth it for the gardens alone.
Always a delight here. The volunteers are amazing. The food is delish. The views are breathtaking. Then combine that with the historical setting and old style buildings you can never go wrong visiting here
Beautiful home and gardens worth a visit in the Blue Mountains region. The landscaping and gardens are an amazing work of art by generations of gardeners and owners of 'Everglades'. The map eludes to the grounds being larger than they actually are. It's only a short walk from the road the the house, and down to the lookout, grotto, and 'Everglades'. Apparently a portion of the original tracks have succumbed to nature and therefore the original pump house is no longer accessible. I look forward to returning here some time when the Tea-rooms are available. I also would like to find out if the house is accessible. I did not see any signs indicating we could go inside, even though pictures online do show the inside the house. Looks like I'll be returning sooner rather than later. :D
The Easter event for Children is absolutely magical. Gorgeous environment for small children.
Amazing property. ..the gardens being the main festure, although the house tour is included in the price. We were disappointed to find that half the house is taken up by staff & volunteers making these rooms inaccessible. Even the teahouse was closed so were unable to see in there either, & the house was our main focus. The verdict? Too expensive to just see a couple of rooms in the house, & there's plenty of other, free gardens one can visit.
Really beautiful gardens and grounds here. It's a Family tradition to visit every year on Easter Sunday for the Easter Egg Hunt. Noal matter when you visit it's a lovely couple of hours
Interesting time warp at this house and gardens with yummy scones as well. Note there is an entry fee and if you want to scones on weekends you may need to book ahead!
A beautiful estate, well worth a visit. Has some gentle staircases, and amazing views. They are often doing art exhibits and fun events, for example they always have a giant Easter egg hunt. There are water features, a tea house, and a wooden fort with a mini moat. You can also look around in the beautiful house and its surrounding sculptures; they have a map so you can make sure you see every one. The volunteers are lovely, and you can easily spend many hours here.
