(4.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, parks, shopping
Leura is a suburb in the City of Blue Mountains local government area that is located west of the Sydney central business district in New South Wales, Australia. It is one of the series of small towns stretched along the Main Western railway line and Great Western Highway that bisects the Blue Mountains National Park. Leura is situated adjacent to Katoomba, the largest centre in the upper mountains, and the two towns merge along Leura's western edge.HistoryThe name Leura is supposedly derived from an Aboriginal word meaning "lava". However, this seems unlikely as no volcanoes have erupted in New South Wales for at least 10 million years.DescriptionLeura's elevation of leads to occasional snowfall in winter and a climate that reflects all four seasons distinctly. At the 2011 census, Leura had a population of people.The village centre lies on Leura Mall which is divided at this point by a wide grassy median strip planted with flowering cherry trees. The historic streetscape has been largely preserved, although there was local concern regarding the development of a shopping complex on the site of a former distribution warehouse. Redesigned to better suit the Leura Mall ambience after consultations with the wider community, the new shopping complex is now complete, hosting a Woolworths supermarket and liquor store. The historic post office building is now home to a news agency. The Alexandra Hotel, not far from the railway station, offers panoramic views from its back veranda. There are a substantial number of restaurants, cafes and coffee shops along Leura Mall, among the boutiques, gift and antique shops.
