In the Beautiful Blue Mountains

Six Festival Days

(Saturday - Monday)5th - 7th October 2019

(Friday - Sunday)11th - 13th October 2019

Each year over 400 Volunteers support the Leura Gardens Festival and help make the Festival an outstanding success.

Volunteers can assist by being a friendly face in one of the gardens, by selling entry tickets or helping visitors from far and wide enjoy a great festival experience. 

Men and women are invited to volunteer and can select the times they wish to assist during the festival, either morning or afternoon shifts of three and a half hours. 

Volunteers are not required to have a deep knowledge of gardening - what's more important is to have a welcoming and outgoing manner.

Supporting our Volunteers

Sylvia Beresford, a local Botanical Artist and active Leura Gardens Festival volunteer herself, has very generously donated another one of her Limited edition prints, as a raffle prize for those volunteers attending the 2019 Thank you Lunch on Sunday 20 October. 

Sylvia’s favourite specimens are chosen from exotic cold climate plants in the Blue Mountains and she has exhibited for many years at the Botanic Gardens Sydney, Botanical Art Society of Australia, The Royal Art Society of NSW, the Society of Mountain Artists, the Blackheath Art Society and in 2018 was invited to participate in the prestigious Kedumba Drawing Award. 

The Leura Gardens Festival Committee wish to sincerely thank Sylvia for her ongoing, generous donation and valuable support for her fellow, hard-working volunteers who, together with the garden owners and sponsors, ensure continued success of the Festival.

Volunteers thank you picnic
