Leura is an enchanting village located in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales, Australia just outside Sydney. With its Edwardian storefronts and 19th century cottages, Leura sits framed upon a background of stunning natural wonders: sandstone escarpment, dense eucalyptus forests and rugged terrain. Leura is now as popular for visitors to the Blue Mountains as Katoomba itself. The area boasts many gardens which are privately owned yet open at selected times of the year to the public. Leura Garden Festival and Leura Village Fair are popular events held in October each year. We stopped in Leura on the tour for about half an hour for a bathroom break and a snack. We decided on the charming Wayzgoose café, a little pastry shop apparently famous for their “flowerpot scone”. They have the usual assortment of herbal teas but also really good hot chocolate.
