Leura – A Garden Village

Standard

Leura is pretty famous among the Blue Mountain residents who consider this village as the most beautiful place in the mountains, yes it is famous than Katoomba. We were planning to visit this place for a while and finally decided to drive around today as the temperature was forecasted to be really warm (12° C). An hour drive from home in the Great Western Highway through some of the beautiful mountain suburbs. There were only a few places marked in the websites as a must see places in Leura but since it is only few minutes away from Katoomba, we have a plenty of lookouts in this village.

We visited the Olympian Rock Lookout near the Toy & Rail museum, Gordon Falls Lookout, the famous shops in Leura like Ainsley fine jewellery, Leura fine Woodwork gallery, Moontree Scented candle shop and a hot fresh baked pie for lunch… You can never imagine walking in this town at this time of the year with no jackets but today was a warm day so we managed it. We have to note that around this time last year it was snowing in these regions.
