The local area...
Whistlers Leura provides a warm welcome and a peaceful setting in any season. This mountain retreat offers a hideaway in the chill of winter, a rainbow of spring and autumn colour, and a cool escape from the summer heat of the city.
Perched between the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park and Leura Golf Course, Whistlers nestles quietly into the edge of the bush, where native birds are frequent visitors. We have a resident lyre bird who, while charming, frequently digs up the garden and puts it onto the path - sorry
