Go Travel Leura: The Valley Burns Brightly
Mt Solitary & Jamison Valley
Last week, (in May) we saw a sight not seen in the mountains since 1955. The Blue Mountains Gazette ran an article with photos and below is the link along with a comment from one of our readers:
- MT SOLITARY BURNS: a hazard reduction burn covering 3500 hectars. The Blue Mountains Gazette shares some exciting and some frightening photos. But photos of the National Parks and Wildlife Service's presence quelled our anxiety.
Go Travel Leura: Oh, What A Day . . In Early May . . .
It was 'A Day'. -- a Harvest Day.. . not in '63 with Franki Valli, but in 2018 with Leura Village Association beating it out -- the best ever Festival!
The Mall was chockablock -- people up and down. Gorgeous produce; brisk business. Great food! Musicians belting out and pickin' a blue grass tune. This Market is one of the best -- high end vendors, quality products.
A cheerful Town Crier kept everyone in line -- his bell, nonstop. The crowd, happy and the weather? Absolutely stunning. Who could ask for more?
So don't miss the Leura Festival in 2019:
Cakes, Chooks & Scarecrows -- all fun on Leura Mall.
