Autumn is a delightful time to visit Everglades; not too hot to walk around the garden and lots of colours in the leaves and flowers. I would imagine that Spring would also be beautiful. The house was well maintained and the gardens immaculate. The volunteers...More

We caught this place on a picture perfect autumn day and so it was idyllic to walk around the gardens and inspect the house. The house is designed beautifully with wonderful views and a small cafe to enjoy them. We loved it.

There are times when you um and ah about whether you should fork out the entry fee to visit National Trust-type properties. However, if you are visiting the Blue Mountains and you love the historic villages and the architecture and European settlement history of this...More

This is a very nice place to spend at least an hour looking over an amazing 1940's home with the most amazing views and an architectural gem. The house itself is nice and the bathrooms a blast to the past but the views are the...More

This house and gardens was owned by one of the wealthiest families in Leura. The gardens are stunning and reminiscent of the parties and gatherings that used to happen here. There is an outdoor theatre which is still used today. In spring the gardens would...More

Easy access to pool of siloam and couple sights inside the gardens. Can imagine it's a superb place for wedding and functions. Just entry fee is a bit of too much.

The gardens at Everglades are beautiful and the views magnificent. No wonder it is used as a performance space as well. We visited on a very hot day and even then it was still very comfortable in the shade. We didn't eat at the coffee...More

Big trees, open theatre and a coffee house in a historic lovely garden. Small fee to pay for your entry but good for the visitors to the area. You need pass this town to reach Katoomba in Bluemountain’s.

I think it would be a lovely place for children, especially in the garden - all the nooks and crannies outside and the space to run and jump too. Just be careful inside the house, but that won't take long.

Small place? I think not. It takes a while to explore Everglades Gardens given its many levels and large area. The entry fee is comparable with fees for entering Mt Wilson gardens. If you belong to the National Trust you... More
