Welcome... to Leura - The Garden Village
The Great Outdoors
We live in the natural beauty of the Blue Mountains where a thick misty layer appears at dawn, but within minutes is burnt off by the sun leaving the grandeur of the escarpment apparent. Along Cliff Drive, the sandstone walls constantly shift colours. With each imperceptible movement of the early morning sun, surprises unfold. Rust coloured crevices appear where yellow flat sandstone walls had been only moments before. The eucalypt-covered valley below seems to ripple with a slow incoming green tide. Excited grinning rock climbers practice early morning rappelling, but quietly. The eerie silence over the smooth rock of Sublime Point Lookout takes our breath away - civilisation is removed. Well, civilisation is at least remote.Great Western Highway, Glenbrook
