My son&I visited here on a sunny day in early October, while all the bulbs&azaleas&rhododendrons&blossoms were out all over Leura and this splendid garden - oh, wow, even my son appreciated the beauty. We visited the grotto which was an adventure, then strolled the gardens, which include a very well-established azalea "forest" - an absolute riot of colour! The photos were amazing.
This isn't a large garden, actually we had only 1 hour in which to see everything, and we did it, but I am bringing hubbie back when next in Sydney, and we are picnic-ing there, for sure! And we will be sure to return in the Spring - wow.
Car-less traveller tip; we used the fun&friendly Trolley Tour bus option through Katoomba&lovely Leura, which stops outside the garden every hour, most hours of the day, and with your bus ticket you get a good discount
