Everglades Historic House and Gardens - Leura
The National Trust brings Australia's heritage alive at Everglades Gardens. Drawing from the great traditions of European landscape design as well as the unique Blue Mountains bushland, Everglades will charm with its grace and beauty.
Constructed in the 1930s by Danish-born landscape gardener Paul Sorensen in conjunction with owner Henri van de Velde, Everglades Gardens is Australia's most spectacular inter-war period garden and has received acclaim from garden lovers worldwide.
A stroll along formal European-style terraces and winding paths reveals the many moods of Everglades from the tranquil Reflection Pool amongst towering trees from all over the world, through rose-lined walks down to the subtle charms of the lookout and contemplative Grotto Pool.
Everglades is the perfect venue for garden tours and picnics, wedding ceremonies, photo shoots and small events.
Visit the tearooms and enjoy the view, gift shop and art gallery run by the Society of Mountain Artists.
