Small Town Charm near the Big City: Leura

Set just over one-and-a-half hours outside of Sydney, Leura offers the perfect escape for city dwellers. Leura's charming small-town vibe and spectacular scenery combine to make this destination one not to miss. The holiday destination is surrounded by natural wonders and is a great mountain-side oasis for nature lovers. Blue Mountain and sandstone escarpment views are available from the town, and the historic structures, quaint shops and appealing eateries only add to the inviting village feel. The charm does not end with the town, though; many of the holiday rentals in the area boast old-world charisma that draws visitors back again and again. Modern accommodations are available to travellers, as well.

Make Your Way into the Bush

Leura’s natural setting puts the lush forest and soaring mountains right at the fingertips of visitors and locals. Numerous bush walk trails are within easy reach of the town, perfect for families looking for day trips, photography buffs and those who just want to get in touch with nature. Beautiful natural sites abound, with some of the most popular sites including Leura Forest, Leura Falls, Leura Cascades, Fortress Rock and Sublime Point. Of course, there are many other well-known spots, and the hike to each is of variable difficulty. Getting to the mountains could not be simpler, as there are shuttle buses to transport groups quickly and efficiently.

Explore Leura Mall

Surrounded by cherry trees and decorated in a colour palette in line with heritage colours, the main street in the village is known as Leura Mall. Here, quaint, local retail establishments mix with a few nationally known stores to create a fantastic shopping environment for visitors on the hunt for a variety of goods. Old-world toy shops, antique books stores, quilt shops and even retailers selling modern oddities line the streets of Leura Mall. After shopping, check out the vast selection of cafes and eateries in Leura. With options for every budget and taste, the cuisine choices are sure to impress. Day spas, salons and more are also found along Leura Mall for those looking to indulge.

Visit the Gardens

Even with the breathtaking natural scenery surrounding Leura, the gardens in town stand out. One of the most popular gardens to visit is the Everglades Garden. This site is open throughout the year and is filled with cold-climate flora and fauna, a grotto pool and other eye-catching gems. Onsite, there is also a tea house, so grab a refreshment before strolling along the well-maintained pathways. There are a number of other beautiful gardens throughout the city, and because preserving the lush natural look is so important to members of this town, there is even an annual garden festival to celebrate the colourful flowers in Leura.

Architecture and History

Many of the buildings in Leura are built with Edwardian flair and 19th century charm; as such, a walk though town reveals some of Leura's most beautiful historic structures. A tour of the town on your own accord allows you to see the buildings that interest you most. However, there is also a more structured walk through town known as the Leura Walking Tour that begins at the Alexandra Hotel and ends at the Redmond Memorial on Leura Mall. The tour can be done as slowly or as quickly as desired, and there is plenty of information about each stop.

Holidays in Leura

With unique opportunities around every corner, historic buildings and unbeatable natural surroundings, Leura is a favourite Australian destination to get away from it all. The town is easily accessible and has a homey, laid-back feel that welcomes both local and international visitors. There is a four-season climate in Leura, and the lovely mountain village receives snow in the winter, which makes for a whole different atmosphere.

Great location

5 of 5
Well presented home with all necessities considered.

Great bush outlook and cosy, with everything we needed for a family break.

5 of 5
The house is in a great location, close to the National Park and a short drive to town. The house was kept warm during some very cold weather with gas heating and the added benefit of a wood fire.
