Everglades is a hidden gem - the gardens are majestic and simply stunning. It is crazy to comprehend how quickly the garden became a reality, especially when looking at the complexity of the creation. The terraces gardens were a highlight, as well as the grotto. I loved visiting in autumn as the Japanese maples were their lovely red colour and... More

Everglades provided a lovely easter Sunday event for the kids. With a fairyland backdrop the kids enjoyed the little easter egg hunts and old fashion games. There was a coffee van, homemade cake stall, sausage sizzle and german food for sale. The kids could also make their own easter hat for the little easter hat parade. After the kids had... More

We used the Blue Bus to get to this out of the way home and gardens. . The home and gardens were developed in the 1930s by a wealthy industrialist and his nurseryman friend. The house is a fascinating art nouveau "sculpture."

Loved our visit to Leuralla. The gardens are amazing! We had lunch in the historic home, which was very nice. Well worth a visit.

Everglades is iconic and worth a stroll around. The gardens are beautiful and the views are lovely - get a nice taste of Australia's European heritage and bush in just an hour.

A man with a vision created his refuge in this peaceful mountain setting. A worthwhile place to visit and enjoy both the gardens and the Art Deco period house. Admission fee contribute to maintaining the property.

Everglades is a timeless National Trust property. The tea rooms is a charming place for morning and afternoon tea and light lunches. The Art Deco decor adds an elegance but it is the house and grounds and view that makes the visit. Recommended.

We visited the Gardens during the Leura Garden Festival in the first week of October. The courtyard garden at the back of the house was set up to serve afternoon teas which was a welcome respite after wandering round the extensive, mature gardens which even includes a waterfall and a grotto. The art deco styled house is open to the... More

This is a must do if you are in Leura.. Stunning views & gardens. A coffee shop (volunteers), lovely cakes etc. Usually has a exhibition on in the gallery. Lots of photo opportunities.

The house is an interesting insight into the Art Deco / Art Noveau era. I certainly enjoyed having a look into 'another time'. But the gardens intrigued me from the outset. They are a delight to wander, even in the middle of winter. There is clever use of formal tarraces to adjust to the slope. But plenty of less formal... More
