Leura is such a pretty village, the streets are lined with beautiful trees that change colour according to the season. I was unfortunate to work in Leura for a few years and I enjoyed every moment of it . 

 

The village has lots of amazing cafes, shops, restaurants, tea houses, guesthouses and hotels.  Its is a wonderful village to spend some time in and browse though the elegant shops. Ideal for a girls weekend away.

Things to See and Do

- Shopping

The main street is called Leura Mall and it is filled with beautiful boutiques and cafes. Be sure to visit Josophan's fine chocolates​, they not only hand make the finest chocolate, they make the most  delicious hot chocolate too.

Along the strip you will also find, fine dinning restaurants which are open for dinner most nights but be sure to make a booking so you will not be disappointed.

Another great place to drop into is Bygone Beauty on the corner of Grose & Megalong Street. They have the most beautiful collection of tea pots and antiques. They also have the world’s largest  collection of tea wares, including more than 5,500 teapots from all over the world. So if you are a tea pot collector you will love this place. I also love their high teas as it is like stepping back in time.
