Leura in focus
The picturesque village of Leura, with its Cherry Blossom-lined main street, is one of the most recognisable villages in the Blue Mountains.
The mid-mountains townships of Faulconbridge, Linden and Woodford are rich in history.
In Faulconbridge, stand in the footsteps of Australia’s successive post federation Prime Ministers, by visiting the Corridor of Oaks. You can also visit the grave site of Sir Henry Parkes, the ‘Father of Federation’ just a short distance from his former family home.
Faulconbridge is also home to one of Australia’s most renowned artists; Norman Lindsay. Visit his former home turned gallery to view his breathtaking, sometimes controversial oil paintings, etchings, and war propaganda. Stroll through Lindsay’s sprawling garden where you will find his voluptuous sculptures dispersed throughout.
Travel on to Linden where you can visit King’s Cave, a spectacular sandstone overhang that was originally used by Traditional Owners for shelter and clean water and then later used by European settlers whilst constructing Cox’s Road. The short walk to the cave is great for families with young children, and if you’re lucky you might even spot an endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo!
Visit Caley’s Repulse, Paradise Pools or simply star gaze at the Linden Observatory. Further along the Great Western Highway, turn off at Woodford where you can stop for a coffee at 20 Mile Hollow before proceeding to the Woodford Academy. Venture out on the self-guided historical Layers of Time tour or visit the scenic Linda Rock that looks back towards Sydney over the National Park.
