Leura Accommodation - Blue Mountains

Leura - Blue Mountains Garden Village

Leura is one of the most popular towns in the Blue Mountains. It is sophisticated and charming and blessed with natural beauty. Just two hours drive from Sydney, it is perfect for a day trip or break away.

The heart of the village is Leura Mall. With its flowering trees in the centre of the street, it is the prettiest shopping strip in The Blue Mountains.

As soon as you enter The Mall you sense the special village atmosphere that makes Leura unique. The Mall is lined with boutiques, cafes, restaurants and specialty shops. But there is much more to Leura than that.

At the other end of The Mall – at Gordon Falls Reserve – you realise you are right at the edge of the World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park.

Leura is a perfect place to escape for a weekend away. Curl up in front of an open fire in a cosy B&B, guesthouse or hotel, enjoy gourmet food in a local restaurant, walk in the Australian bush and breathe clean crisp mountain air.
