Leura Gardens Festival 2018 - New Format

Source: Leura Gardens Festival
Posted: 15 Sep 2018
Planning is well underway for the 2018 festival which will have a new format this year.

This year the festival will be held for 6 days over 2 long weekends:

Saturday 29th September to Monday 1st October, 2018 (public holiday weekend)
Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October, 2018

There will be no festival from Tuesday 2nd to Thursday 4th October, 2018. However, the Plant Sales will be open everyday from Saturday 29th September - Sunday 7th October inclusive.

Pre-festival tours, which have also proven to be very successful, will be held from Monday 24th to Friday 28th September, 2018.

The festival, which is so enthusiastically supported by the local community, celebrates cold climate gardens and gardening, and all proceeds raised will benefit the Blue Mountains District Anzac Memorial Hospital and Blue Mountains health related organisations.

Gardens are open from 9.30 am - 4.30 pm daily.

Situated in the beautiful Blue Mountains 100 kms west of Sydney, the gardens of Leura are famous for their magnificent displays of azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods, camellias and other cool climate exotics, as well as flowering annuals, perennials and bulbs. The blaze of springtime colour in the gardens attracts visitors from all parts of Australia and overseas.

There are big gardens and small gardens in the Festival and each garden has its own distinctive character.

Ticket Prices 

Combined ticket: $25 pp entitles you to visit ALL Festival gardens. An all gardens ticket is valid for the duration of the Festival. Tickets may be purchased at the entry point of each garden (except Gardens 3 and 5), at our stand near Leura Station and at Festival Headquarters.

Single garden ticket: $8 pp. Children 16 and under are free.

A Credit and debit card facility (Visa and Mastercard) is available at Headquarters which is located outside Leura Fairways Retirement Village 19-21 Fitzroy Street, Leura and at the Festival stand in Leura Mall.

Please note that strollers must not be taken into any garden, and children must at all times be accompanied by an adult. We would ask, too, that you please keep a close eye on your children as it is very easy for plants to be damaged. Dogs or other animals are not permitted to enter any garden. Visitors to gardens must stay on paths at all times and keep out of areas marked 'out of bounds'.

For public transport information, and to plan your trip, visit the Transport NSW website and click on Plan Your Trip, or call 131500.

How to Get From Garden to Garden
The Festival bus service runs between all gardens approximately every 30 minutes, with the cost for an all-day ticket being $10. The first bus leaves Leura Station at 9.30am each day and the last bus departs the station at 4.30pm for the last circuit. Timetables for each scheduled bus stop are available in each garden.
