ABOUT: Mount Wilson is a lovely town set in the northern wilderness areas of the Blue Mountains and a long way, metaphorically, from the bustling Great Western Highway towns. It is beautiful visiting in Autumn when the many gardens, tree lines roads and surrounding woods show off their rich warm leaves particularly good at sundown.
PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: A tripod, moderate wide angles and graduates filters to dampen down the bright sun coming through the leafy wood lined areas. A macro essential if you are into taking many of the varieties of plants in the handful of gardens in the town.
GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Well signposted off the Bell’s Line of Road whether coming from Bells/Mount Victoria side or the longer Richmond direction. About a 10-15 minute drive off the main highway.
