Hills District Orchids hold four seasonal Open Days throughout the year. These have proved very popular for both orchid enthusiasts and general plant lovers for filling the niche that has been left after the closure of several previous full-time retail specialist nurseries in the Sydney Region. The informal atmosphere provides an ideal opportunity to discuss and purchase plants and observe first-hand their growing conditions. There are numerous experts on hand to provide advice and answer any orchid & plant-related questions.

Due to Covid-19 we no longer provide a BBQ or tea & coffee facilities.

The Open Days start at 9.00am until 3.00pm.

Windsor Road is also on the main bus route between Parramatta and Baulkham Hills/Castle Hill. Westbus Operate from Parramatta railway station. To plan your trip on public transport visit
