Relax with a variety of music in landscaped gardens
The ever popular Music in the Gardens concerts will again be held as part of the Leura Gardens Festival this year and will showcase a wide range of talent and music from jazz to opera and what better surroundings to relax in than in the stunning Blue Mountains in spring.

The location for these concerts will be the Waldorf Leura Gardens Resort and there is no additional charge beyond the normal garden entry fee.
