Leura is an enchanting village located in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. With its Edwardian storefronts and 19th century cottages, Leura sits framed upon a background of stunning natural wonders: sandstone escarpment, dense eucalypt forests and rugged terrain.
For day travelers, Leura is an easy two-hour car or train journey from Sydney. For the overnight guests, this Edwardian village offers charm and elegance – an extraordinary getaway.
Leura and the Blue Mountains move noticeably into four distinct seasons. A chill in the autumn air and brilliant colours can be seen on every village street.
Wrapped warmly for the predictable wintry cold, we take part in Yuletide celebrations and feasts in July.
Spring arrives and The Mall is in full spectacular bloom for the October Leura Village Fair. The street becomes a vendor's paradise and many private Leura's gardens open to the public.
Summer finds Christmas shoppers filling the streets and cafés. January's Shakespeare Festival in the Everglades Gardens setting is delightful and in February the flamboyant Roarin' 20s Festival transforms The Mall into glitz and glitter.
Whatever the season, we return again and again to Leura, the perfect combination of the natural ancient world and the modern day fun. Click here - photo gallery - for a visual look at Leura.
