Your visit to Leuralla allows you to explore one of the oldest Blue Mountains' heritage listed homes set within 12 acres of temperate gardens.

The historic home was completed just prior to World War I and is located in Leura, the garden heartland of the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage Site and a City within a National Park.

The gardens - 12 acres - of "Leuralla" were laid down at the turn of the century.

Paul Sorenson, an important creative influence on many mountain gardens, played a major role in creating this - one of the earliest and largest Blue Mountains gardens.

Planning and plantings were on a large scale with many trees imported from Europe and America.The garden is bounded by conifers forming shelter for internal plantings.

The long driveway, travelling the length of the garden is laurel lined and emphasised by conifers - many rare - sweeping to circle a majestic Atlas Cedar (Cedrus Atlantica) before the house.

The world famous collection of toys and model trains includes such famous names as Hornby, Märklin, Lionel, Basett Lowke and Bing.

The collection of tin toys includes penny toys (penny toys were sold in Victorian times), along with tin plate boats, aeroplanes, lead soldiers, farm animals and dolls houses.
