In the Beautiful Blue Mountains

30 September - 8 October 2017

About the Festival

The 2017 Leura Gardens Festival will be held from Saturday 30th September - Sunday 8th October inclusive. Gardens are open from 9.30 am - 4.30 pm daily.

Situated in the beautiful Blue Mountains 100 kms west of Sydney, the gardens of Leura are famous for their magnificent displays of azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods, camellias and other cool climate exotics, as well as flowering annuals, perennials and bulbs. The blaze of springtime colour in the gardens attracts visitors from all parts of Australia and overseas.

There are big gardens and small gardens in the Festival and each garden has its own distinctive character.

Ticket Prices:

  • Combined ticket: $25 pp entitles you to visit ALL Festival gardens. An all gardens ticket is valid for the duration of the Festival. Tickets may be purchased at the entry point of each garden, at our stand near Leura Station and at Festival Headquarters.
  • Single garden ticket: $8 pp. Children 16 and under are free, except in the case of Everglades, where the National Trust charges an entrance fee.

A credit card facility (Visa and Mastercard) is available at Headquarters which is located outside Leura Fairways Retirement Village 19-21 Fitzroy Street Leura

Please note that strollers must not be taken into any garden, and children must at all times be accompanied by an adult. We would ask, too, that you please keep a close eye on your children as it is very easy for plants to be damaged. Dogs or other animals are not permitted to enter any garden. Visitors to gardens must stay on paths at all times and keep out of areas marked 'out of bounds'.

How to get from garden to garden

There is a Festival bus available from Leura Station from 9.30 am until the close of gardens. This follows a set route and stops at all gardens throughout the day. On the two weekends of the Festival (30 September-1-2 October and 7-8 October) which are the busiest times, two buses will be running to ensure our visitors can comfortably access all gardens. These buses will be evenly spread to minimise time delays. The cost of an all day bus ticket is $5 per person during the week days of the Festival and $10 per person during the weekends. No charge for visitors under 16 years of age.
