In the Beautiful Blue Mountains

Festival 2024

Friday 4 Oct - Monday 7 Oct

Situated in the beautiful Blue Mountains 100 kms west of Sydney, the cool climate gardens of Leura are famous for their magnificent displays of azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods, camellias and other 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 large and small gardens in the Festival and each garden has its own distinctive character.


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 (except for assistance 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 'no entry'.
