A beautiful old Leura house built by " Doc" Evatt, famous politician . But the house can't really be appreciated because of the huge amounts of toys which are stuffed into every room. Nothing is described or curated - it is just an endless collection of " stuff" . I asked about Doc Evatt and was told " look upstairs".... More

2nd time to visit here and although it is not for everyone, I think it's worth a look. Historic and yet the sheer amount of the collection(s) is surprising and brings back your own childhood. It's hands off but there's plenty to see and the park across the road and access to the cliff top walk are certainly worth a... More

We have visited this place as hotel staff recomended it. It was nice although the house needs some work. The toy collection is impressive, the gardens are nice. I feel $35 for a family is too much to charge for this kind of place. This fee should at least include the model trains un the gardens. Instead they are all... More

guest at hotel recommended we have a look and it was really interesting. Needs some repairs and TLC but toy and train collections are really good. Our little child loved the toys and trains

A nice spot for a small wedding ceremony- as long as it doesn't rain (which it didn't!) The toadstools were straight out of a fairytale!! Simple and classic- their wedding photos will be gorgeous. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Smith 💖

We were rained out in the blue mountains and looking for something to keep two children distracted for an hour or so. This was a real find. The owners were really friendly and easy going. Our daughter (3) loved looking at all the old toys and our son (1) was free to crawl about (I just made sure to grab... More

Stopped after seeing the signs. Huge collection of trains, dolls, ships and other toys housed both in the house and outbuildings in the garden around the house. Lots of interesting items if you are knowledgeable on trains especially or toys in general. Not that well displayed and many modern items posing as old. Also seems a bit neglected especially the...

We were disappointed in our visit to Leuralla. Although the toy exhibition is vast there was no real information or history and it felt like the displays were all jumbled up. The gardens were lovely but there was no cafe or opportunity to buy a drink. It felt poor value for money.

We had an older Coach group, who looked over this museum, and found a lot of interesting things in it of their (and my) day. Probably the kids of today may not even know half of the stuff. The Museum is set in an historic mansion built for Dr Evatt and Family, it is lovely and worth the visit, it... More

What can you say the whole venue is a museum - and we were lucky enough to be there when all the trees and plants were in full bloom. What a fantastic family home this would have been. There is lots of info on the history of the house and its occupants that was most interesting with photographs to go... More
