A fresh take on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day only comes around once a year and is just around the corner. Whether you are looking for a special place to bring the family together, an indulgent meal without the clean up or a beautiful gift for her to unwrap – we have you covered for Mother’s Day.

The gift of luxury

Atelier Lumira’s FLORESENCE, a limited-edition scented candle inspired by the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, is the perfect gift for Mums who have it all and those that want to take the essence of the Garden home with them.

FLORESCENCE will transport her back to our city oasis with the scent of a subtropical garden, filled with florals, herbs and spices from Australia.  

A portion of every purchase will help protect the natural environment by supporting the Garden's ground-breaking science and conservation work.

As an added bonus, you have a chance to win an extra special treat for two. Purchase FLORESENCE between 29 April to 11 May 2019 and you will go in the draw to win an unforgettable High Tea at The Calyx. More information here.

FLORESCENCE is a relaxing aroma and special gift for Mum. 

The gift of indulgence 

Mum deserves the Royal treatment and The Potager has designed a menu fit for a Queen this Mother's Day.  Located just outside of Sydney via the historic Bells Line of Road, this restaurant is truly a 'must see.' Dine amongst the autumn colours within the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah and soak in the breathtaking views from the terrace.

The produce-driven menu includes lemongrass and ginger braised belly of pork, goats cheese bon bon, burnt butter snapper, Romanesco rolled chicken and so much more.

Go the extra mile for Mum and make it a day trip by using the Sydney to Blue Mountains itinerary - it is well worth the drive.

The gift of an experience

Led by perfume consultant Catherine du Peloux Menage and our wonderful volunteer guides including Mary Threlfall, who once worked for the fashion house Schiaparelli launching new fragrances, the Mother's Day Perfume Walk has all the ingredients for an unforgettable experience.
This one-of-a-kind tour is a memorable way to spend Mother's Day,  unravelling the mysteries of perfume while exploring the most fragrant plants found in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. It will be a very charming, unique afternoon spent with experts on both perfumes and horticulture.

The gift of family time

Mix it up for Mum and enjoy a day by the lake browsing market stalls and sampling from all the food trucks at the Eat.Love.Shop Markets in the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan.

This free family day out will be one to remember with live music, kids activities and a whole lot more on offer.
