There are times when you um and ah about whether you should fork out the entry fee to visit National Trust-type properties. However, if you are visiting the Blue Mountains and you love the historic villages and the architecture and European settlement history of this...More

This house and gardens was owned by one of the wealthiest families in Leura. The gardens are stunning and reminiscent of the parties and gatherings that used to happen here. There is an outdoor theatre which is still used today. In spring the gardens would...More

Easy access to pool of siloam and couple sights inside the gardens. Can imagine it's a superb place for wedding and functions. Just entry fee is a bit of too much.

The gardens at Everglades are beautiful and the views magnificent. No wonder it is used as a performance space as well. We visited on a very hot day and even then it was still very comfortable in the shade. We didn't eat at the coffee...More

Big trees, open theatre and a coffee house in a historic lovely garden. Small fee to pay for your entry but good for the visitors to the area. You need pass this town to reach Katoomba in Bluemountain’s.

We went for some peace and it was. Lovely garden and humble art deco abode that probably was extravagant in its time. Enjoyable wander through the gardens and perfect position for the play this weekend with the amphitheatre.

I think it would be a lovely place for children, especially in the garden - all the nooks and crannies outside and the space to run and jump too. Just be careful inside the house, but that won't take long.

Small place? I think not. It takes a while to explore Everglades Gardens given its many levels and large area. The entry fee is comparable with fees for entering Mt Wilson gardens. If you belong to the National Trust you... More
