About the neighbourhood
Luxurious Leura Accommodation. A two minute stroll to Leura village A grand historic home that sleeps one to three couples in style. Self-contained for total privacy. Travellers flock far and wide to visit Leura, in all its majesty and glory. Spring truly sees the Village come to life in all its spectacular show of cherry blossoms lining the street and annuals bursting with colour. Varenna is the perfect location. No need to drive, just stroll to the Village or if the train is your preferred mode of arrival, the station is only a few minutes away.
Getting around
Best way to see all the local attractions and to get around for the duration of your stay is the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus (a red London double decker bus) which allows you to hop-on and hop-off for the duration of your stay. Get a real bird's eye view of the Blue Mountains whilst sitting on the second level - a beautiful experience complete with commentary. There are 31 stops around the villages of Leura and Katoomba so you can pick up the bus at every major location.
