Leura Gardens Festival 2014

 

Celebrating 50 years of Spring in the Blue Mountains

Saturday 4th - Sunday 12th October 2014

The 2014 Leura Gardens Festival can only be described as the best ever, far exceeding our expectations in terms of both the huge number of visitors and the amount of money it has raised for our local hospital and other health related charities.

Thank you to the around 400 volunteers who worked tirelessly during the nine days; to the garden owners who allowed us to include their beautiful properties in this, our 50th year; to our key sponsors - Bendigo Bank, The Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens, Mt Tomah, Katoomba RSL, Scenic World and Waldorf Leura Gardens Resort; to our horticultural speakers and all the musicians who freely took part in the afternoon concerts; to the local community for coming along and bringing your friends and relatives; and to all the visitors who came from far and wide just for the festival.

Roll on next year - save the date October 3-11, 2015

Ray Wiles
President
Leura Gardens Festival Committee

 

 

The Leura Gardens Festival is a registered charity managed and run by over 300 local volunteers. All funds raised go towards the purchase of equipment for the Blue Mountains District Anzac Memorial Hospital and other local medical foundations.
