Blue Mountains & Penrith Districts Orchid Society.

We are a friendly orchid society, who meet at 8pm on the fourth Friday of each month, except December, at

The Melrose Hall
Cnr Park St and the Great Western Highway
Emu Plains NSW 2750

Visitors are always welcome.

More about the society.

Meetings are preceded by a Growers Group at 7:30pm, where newer growers are given tips on various aspects of orchid growing.

The meeting itself consists of a short formal meeting, usually followed by a talk by a guest speaker on an orchid-related subject.
Members bench their flowering plants for judging.

Other club activities enjoyed by members include bus trips, orchid crawls, orchid shows, fundraising events and our annual Christmas party and Presentation night.

Our aim is to encourage people to grow their orchids well, and to share the joy of orchids with others.

The society has been going for more than 60 years, and has over 100 members.
