You will see King parrots, kookaburras, cockatoos and may even spy a couple of lyre birds. In winter Leura is a picture postcard fantasy complete with snowfalls. Xmas in July is great fun, and in Springtime the garden is a sea of pink and white blooms. A Weber BBQ and outdoor setting awaits you under the cherry blossom and maple trees, a delightful place for a pre-dinner drink, lunch or evening meal. The enormous new escarpment facing deck is the place to be for twilight drinks and nibbles as you gaze towards the mountain and valley views while watching the sun set.
