In the Beautiful Blue Mountains

29 September - 7 October 2018


Think Spring …. Think Leura

Leura Gardens a blooming marvel!

So said the headline of the Blue Mountains Gazette on 11 October 2017.  Fine spring weather drew the crowds to the 53rd Leura Gardens Festival with the event generating a record result.

Festival President, Brooke Broughton said the income generated over the nine days was the highest ever and although Festival expenses have not yet been finalised, we are on track to have a healthy sum to help the hospital and other bodies we assist.

Huge thanks as always must go to the garden owners who generously shared their gardens with visitors for nine days, to the hundreds of volunteers who were the face of the Festival, to the artists, musicians and plant sellers who added value to the Festival and of course to the wonderful Leura Community who welcomed visitors from far and wide.

Save the date for future Festivals:

2018 – Saturday, September 29 to Sunday, October 7

2019 – Saturday, October 5 to Sunday, October 13

 Many thanks to those who have contributed Festival photographs to this site, including Jodi McConaghy Photography, Julie Martin and garden owners,
