The “garden village” of Leura has made it into a list of top 50 most irresistible, exotic, historic and postcard-worthy small towns in Australia.
Complied by international travel writers from Discount My Flights, towns were assessed on their historical, cultural, geographical and natural significance.
Leura’s best features included its boutique shopping, vibrant café culture and four distinct seasons.
Leura Garage’s gourmet pizzas, share plates, refreshing drinks and relaxed vibe also got a mention.
So too did the the short walk from town to Olympian Rock, “where you can breathe in the majesty of the ironstone escarpment and continue on to explore the wild yet accessible beauty of Blue Mountains National Park.”
