Think Spring - Think Leura - It's time to start planning your visit!
The 53rd Leura Gardens Festival promises to maintain the high standard of past festivals with several beautiful new gardens for visitors to enjoy as well as a good selection of old favourites.
The Upper Blue Mountains in the spring is a feast of new growth, masses of flowers, gorgeous bulbs and an amazing variety of cold climate plants including wonderful deciduous trees, which will just be coming into their full glory.
Date: Saturday 30 September - Sunday 8 October 2017
Time: Gardens open every day at 9.30 - 4.30 pm
This year’s Leura Gardens Festival is again offering special pre-festival tours for groups of 10+ people. These tours take place the week before the main festival and offer access to four wonderful gardens which are not included in the festival and may not otherwise be open to the public.
Dates: Monday, September 25 to Friday, September 29
Opening Times: 10am – 4.00 pm
Cost: $30 per person
Booking Essential: Payment in full by 6 September
As part of these exclusive tours, we provide tour guides to meet and greet your group, accompany you through the gardens and generally look after you for the day.
Groups provide their own transport, whether bus or car. Generally 2 gardens are visited in the morning, followed by a lunch break (arranged by the group) and 2 gardens in the afternoon with specific timing to be agreed with our tours co-ordinator.
