Leura is a beautiful Blue Mountains town that has walking tracks, scenic viewpoints, and stunning gardens.

Leura, Blue Mountains

Leura is a popular and beautiful town within the Blue Mountains. Here you can find plenty to do including cafes, restaurants, shops, and places to stay. The town is also close to major attractions in the Blue Mountains including the Three Sisters, Scenic World, and Katoomba Falls.

However, while in the picturesque town of Leura, here are a couple of things you can do.

1. Elysian Rock Lookout

Elysian Rock Lookout provides some gorgeous views, that are best at sunrise and sunset. The lookout has great vantage views of the Blue Mountains and cliff faces.

It can be a bit difficult to find this lookout, but if you go down Sublime Point Road and then down Sublime Point Walking Track, you’ll find your way.

2. Leura Cascades

Leura Cascades is a popular picnic spot. Here you’ll be by the eucalypt trees, within hearing distance of the water streaming and a great spot for some birdwatching.

You can do the Leura Cascades Fern Bower Circuit and walk through the lush green ferns towards the Cascades and see a beautiful viewpoint.

Leura Falls

3. Everglades House and Gardens

This is one of Leura’s most popular places to see. The Everglades House and Gardens showcases local plants and international designs.

There are 13 acres of gardens to explore, a spot to enjoy a picnic, or you can get a bite to eat at the tearoom. If you’re visiting during summer, the Shakespeare Festival is hosted at the Everglades!

4. Sublime Point Lookout

Sublime Point Lookout gives you an experience of feeling like you’re on top of the world and seeing the scenic views that never end. The lookout point has views that overlook Jamison Valley and the Blue Mountains National Park.

Bring along some of your favourite snacks and this area is a great picnic location along with being a great place to spot some of the local birds.

5. Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum and Tearooms

For a different type of museum, come see the world’s largest private collection of teawares!

When you’ve had your look around the different types of teapots in the museum, have a bite to eat and some tea in the tearoom.
