Orchids Out West comprises beautiful displays put on by the local orchid societies such as Blacktown City, Blue Mountains and Penrith District and Hawkesbury District Orchid Societies. There are lots of orchids for sale from vendors from around Australia.
The fair has a great selection of plants to be purchased to enhance your orchid collection, and always something new. Every year the displays improve in quality and are always very colourful thanks to the wonderful collection of orchids of all generas such as cattleyas, paphiopedilums and cymbidiums, just to name a few.
It is worth the drive to the beautiful Hawkesbury district and then maybe further up into the Blue Mountains. Make it a great day out and smell the flowers!
Plenty of free parking with Clarendon Railway Station nearby. Barbecue and light refreshments available.
