Botanic Gardens Trust, Sydney, Australia



One hour and forty minutes drive from Sydney or forty-five minutes drive from Katoomba, the Tomah Gardens Restaurant is located within the manicured surrounds of the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah. The Restaurant sits perched on a ridge overlooking an endless vista stretching as far as the Hunter Valley across the Wollemi National Park. The licensed Restaurant is casual Australian dining with a la carte and children’s options.

The Garden welcomes Sean Moran from Sean's Panorama at Bondi. Sean has created the beautifully rustic Tomah Gardens Restaurant, much in fitting with the stunning rural surrounds of Mount Tomah and nearby Bilpin. Sean’s philosophy is to use local produce and high quality ingredients, creating healthy meals, as well as sourcing locally made furniture and design elements.

With local craftsman Roland Kindler creating hand made tables, potter Steven Sheridan throwing plates, wood turners Paul Trebel and Vincent Dobson turning pepper mills and macrocarpa pod salt dishes, Sean is transforming both the venue and the food into a soulful work of art. The restaurant is licensed and offers casual Australian dining with a la carte and children's options. Bookings highly recommended on 0421 552 746 or
