Quintessentially Blue Mountains – Parklands Country Gardens

By Lachlan Probyn,

Nestled amidst a 28-acre heritage property in Blackheath, you will find a haven of peace and tranquility. Enter through sweeping, majestic gates, and follow a meandering gravel path, lined with old pines, cypresses, and Japanese maples. Positioned beside manicured gardens, and overlooking a lake, lies the quintessential Blue Mountains escape. Welcome to Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges.

“Parklands is beautiful all year round, but it’s especially magical in winter with mist and occasional snowfalls outdoors and warming drinks by toasty fires and spa treatments inside.”

-Parklands staff


Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, or you’d simply like to rekindle a little passion with your beau or belle, Parklands is the type of retreat that’s simply made for an indulgent weekend away. The estate offers a luxury homestead and seven country cottages, all in the weatherboard style typical to the Blue Mountains. Feel like a modern-day character from an Austen novel, as you stroll through the lush, stately grounds that are reminiscent of an old English estate and bask in the country serenity.
