Everglades Historic House and Gardens, Leura

4.5
Visit Everglades Historic House and Gardens, one of Australia’s most notable heritage gardens. Built in the 1930s by Dutch designer Paul Sorensen, the site features elaborate sandstone terraces, sweeping lawns, and European-style landscapes set against a backdrop of native bushland. The former home of Belgian-born industrialist Henri van de Velde, the property includes a Moderne-style house, 5 hectares (13 acres) of manicured gardens, and an outdoor theater, which hosts dramatic performances and an annual Shakespeare festival. Spend some time resting in the gardens, visit the gift shop, and drop by the site’s art gallery. Indulge yourself at the popular tea room, which serves coffee, herbal teas, local apple juice, and freshly baked cakes.

  • Nice garden to walk around. Thumbs up for the volunteers to keep the place running. Especially the ladies at Tea room. I felt their love in my iced coffee ❤ Thank you.
  • Stunning gardens and loverly Art Deco house, hidden at the back of Leura, without tourist masses. Not expensive (not sure why some are saying it is). Great for kids too
