Mayfield Garden, Oberon:

Mayfield was established in 1984, initially as a sheep farm. The heart of the property has been gradually transformed from bare paddocks into one of the largest, privately owned cool climate gardens in the world.

The Gardens:The gardens listed below have taken part in previous Leura Gardens Festivals. As yet, the gardens that will take part in 2021's festival, has not been decided.
The Braes, Leura:

The Braes Heritage Garden Estate is adjacent to the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park and lies between an urban environment and a semi-rural one, with views to the Southern Highlands.

Two gardens will be open during the Festival - the Lady Fairfax and the Margaret Stevens.

The garden contains an English oak, scarlet oak, linden tree, many Japanese maples, rhododendrons and azaleas. The wood under the English beech and silver birch is carpeted with bluebells in spring and there is also a stream and rock pool built by Hood.


 

Dead End House, Leura:

Lera Gardens - Dead END houseDead End House

This natural garden has been a regular in the Garden Festival for many years and always a delight to visit. This lovely garden includes beautiful ironstone walls and drum pillars, terraces, ponds and colourful mosaics.

The garden was created in the 1970s & hosts fantastic views. 

Most plants in this spectacular garden are very mature with maples, azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias being used extensively through the entire garden. 


 

Ewanrigg, Leura:

5ff10821ad9f4.jpg?v=2&m=d3a918801b15156374520782c9ee4e8cEwanrigg

Ewanrigg is a garden that encourages visitors to amble and explore its intricate network of pathways and steps while admiring the foresight and talent of its creator and those who have nurtured it since.Over the decades many visitors to Ewanrigg have suggested the strength of the garden is the wisdom of having planted trees in the past that now act as a canopy to a series of lush garden rooms. 


 

Fairways, Leura:

Fairways

Fairways is an established garden built in 1896 as one of Leura's first guesthouses.

The garden was redesigned 18 years ago by Christopher Wallis of Venetiaville Designs. Fairways retained some of the mature trees including one of the Blue Mountains' largest rhododendrens located at the entrance to the property; an English holly, a crabapple and flowering cherries, giving the garden its sense of place and combining the old with the new.


 

St Annes, Leura:

5ff12f2e00185.jpg?v=2&m=f2b0fb6c8fc23275b6e2e0a376fd5247St Annes

The best-known feature of St Annes has been its front hedge of Cypress pines, which appeared on 'Burkes Backyard' and as an exemplar of its kind in gardening magazines and horticultural manuals.

Behind the hedge lies a woodland garden that celebrates trees: red and white oak, copper beech, cypress, cherry, pine, dogwood, liquidambar, deodar cedars, maple and more.


 

Glenshiel, Leura:

5ff1300a7c2cf.jpg?v=2&m=ea58bbdbbb594cc596f0d0226d538933 Glenshiel

Glenshiel is about an acre in size and was purchased by the current owners in 2009. 

The garden was a blank canvas with much bush needing to be cleared. It is, therefore, a relatively immature garden with the only original tree, a crabapple, thought to date back to the origins of the house (c1917).

 


 

Everglades Historic House & Gardens, Leura:

Everglades

Everglades is the largest and most famous garden designed by Paul Sorensen, Australia's "Master Gardener". Work began in 1934 after Belgian-born businessman Henri Van de Velde hired Sorensen to oversee work on 13 acres of steeply sloping orchard. 

Nearly nine decades later, Everglades is now maintained by the National Trust and attracts and delights 25,000 visitors each year.

On entering the main gate, you are greeted by a colourful swathe of spring-flowering bulbs, vivid tulip beds, daffodil lawn and drifts of bluebells. Azaleas and rhododendrons are ablaze with colour on the southern slopes, with views of the Jamison Valley beyond.


 

Please Note:Whether the Leura Garden & Mayfield Garden Spring Festivals proceed in October 2021 is dependent upon Covid-19 restrictions at the time.
