Our Gardens

In 2018 there were 10 beautiful gardens on show including new and returning gardens and a selection of favourites that keep our visitors coming back year after year. The gardens offer a wide range of styles and sizes to provide food for thought and inspiration for all gardeners. We will update the website with information about the 2019 Gardens in due course, but in the meantime, enjoy the images of the 2018 Gardens.

Rustlings is a 100-year-old garden acquired by Peter and Claudia Fisk in 2000. Over a ten-year period Peter transformed it to create a wonderfully peaceful landscape with many rooms, each with a different feel and mood.

This garden celebrates the climate of the Upper Blue Mountains with its four distinct seasons.

We have two gardens open for the Festival - the Lady Fairfax Garden and the Margaret Stevens Garden.

This is a garden dominated by trees, sometimes overwhelmingly so.    As trees often resist discipline, the garden has a natural disobedient air. 

Much like the resort itself, the Fairmont Resort gardens have seen significant rejuvenation over the past few years. The expansive garden area features many quiet sanctuaries accentuated by the three magnificent lakes.


Hill of Grace is making its debut for the Leura Garden Festival in 2018. The garden was created in the 1970s by Keith Knox, with “crazy paving” stone paths and walls being used to cut across a remarkably steep, east-facing site at the back of the property. The resulting vertical garden is simultaneously beautiful and challenging. 


Ewanrigg is a garden that encourages visitors to amble and explore its intricate network of pathways and steps while admiring the foresight and talent of its creator and those who have nurtured it since.

Fairways is an established garden, originally built in 1896 as one of Leura’s first guesthouses.

Glenshiel is about an acre in size and was purchased by the current owners in 2009. The garden was a blank canvas with much bush needing to be cleared.

Everglades is the largest and most famous garden designed by Paul Sorensen, Australia's "Master Gardener".
