Think Spring! Think Leura Gardens Festival 2018

In addition to beautiful new gardens for visitors to enjoy, there will be a selection of old favourites, all maintaining the high standards of past festivals.
The Upper Blue Mountains in the spring is a feast of new growth. With masses of flowers, gorgeous bulbs and an amazing variety of cold climate plants as well as wonderful deciduous trees that will just be coming into their full glory. As gardens at their very best in spring, the Leura Gardens Festival has always been a magnet for visitors seeking not only to enjoy the beauty that is on show, but also seeking inspiration for their own gardens.
Festival highlights include the daily Music in the Garden performances, the art show featuring works painted in the gardens during the festival, and excellent bargains from the festival’s plant sales centre.
