Information and attractions Accommodation

Introduction:

Leura is located in the heart of the Blue Mountains between the tourist hub of Katoomba and picturesque town of Wentworth Falls.

The commercial centre of Leura is situated along the wide tree-lined boulevard of The Mall with its collection of boutique restaurants, cafes and gift shops. The town features several historic buildings including the railway station (1891) and the historic Hotel Alexandra (1903).

For one of the most spectacular lookouts in the Blue Mountains, follow Sublime Point Road to its southern endpoint. A short walk to the lookout offers visitors views of the Jamison Valley and the Three Sisters rock formation. Following the scenic route of Cliff Drive westwards to Katoomba passes by several lookouts, the Leura Falls and Leura Cascades.
