LEURA GARDEN FESTIVAL & LEURA VILLAGE FAIR: ON OUR HORIZON

 

   

Leura Gardens Festival 2017

30 September to 8 October (Fee),

9.30am to 4.30pm For nine days, blossoming and flowering gardens take centre stage. With the Leura Gardens Festival we can go beyond the garden gate and into these beautifully kept gardens. This is Leura's horticultural finery at its best where cottages hide amid a blaze of colour on every residential street. As in past years, the mini-nursery on Watkins Road will sell a wide range of cool climate and native plants. Marking the festival's 53rd year, as in the past, all funds raised will go towards purchasing equipment for the Blue Mountains District ANZAC Memorial Hospital and other Blue Mountains medical foundations.
