Marvel At 20,000 Blooming Flowers In The Heart Of Sydney

Nothing quite brings a smile to our face like sunny days, gardens and flowers inBloom.

At the centre of Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden lies a glasshouse. And in this glasshouse, a glorious world of colour and light was imagined and brought to life, right in time for Sydney’s spring weather. But now the seasons have changed, so too have the flowers.

Curated by the horticultural team at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, inBloom at The Calyx has on display 20,000 plants and flowers resulting in a kaleidoscopic world that evolves and changes as the days pass and the weather heats up.

Visitors are invited to wander and lose themselves among the flowery delights, the dizzying array of colours, and the shifting rays of light. They can also walk along one of the largest living green walls in the Southern Hemisphere, which stretches over 50 metres in length and stands at over 5 metres in height.

inBloom will run until the end of winter 2021, and is open every day from 10am – 4pm. Entry is free, though donations are more than welcome.


However, if you’re really into the weird, unusual or rare kinds of plants and flowers, then Gems of the Plant Collection at inBLOOM is the event for you.

Join horticulturist Paul Nicholson every second Thursday of the month for some cheeky peeks at flowers normally kept under lock and key in the nursery. Attendance is donation based but tickets must be reserved.
