Leuralla Public Gardens Amphitheatre

I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

Leuralla Public Gardens Ampitheatre is unique in the Blue Mountains and not something I knew about until I passed it on my way to Gordon Falls.

It is a publicly accessible cliff-top lawn area that looks out over the Jamison Valley. It also features an ampitheatre that takes full advantage of these views.



The gardens are part of the grounds of Leuralla (an early twentieth century mansion that houses a toy and railway museum), which is located across the road. Leuralla costs $15 to enter, but these gardens are only $2.

The cost isn't much, but if you're here on an average weekend, you can see pretty much all of it without actually going inside, as there's no hidden spots you can't see from the road while you pass by. Except down into the amphitheatre that is, which is made of sandstone and Bathurst slate and fits right into the Blue Mountains setting.



It would probably be more worthwhile to come here on a special occasion; the gardens can be booked for weddings and performances and can seat from 300 (just using the amphitheatre) to 1000 people (including use of the lawn).

For views that are free, head to Gordon Falls, not far away at the end of the road. You'll also find Gordon Reserve there, with a big picnic area that has its own play equipment and toilets.
