Had been here before, but not to the house. What a great house this is. It takes you right back many decades ago with all the art deco bling. Don't forget to check out the bathrooms.
The gardens are just magnificent when the azaleas and...More
We visited as one of the Leura Open gardens but there is much to see and friends we were with said there was now more areas of the house open. The garden contrasts the indigenous and decorative gardens and is best enjoyed at a leisurely...More
I visited yesterday, the 28th September on a sunny afternoon, my first visit.It is only early spring here.There was a lovely area of massed crimson azalea bushes but most of their azaleas and almost all of their rhododendrons are not blooming yet.I would wait at...More
The house is a gem and the Devonshire teas (especially the lemon butter and cream) are fabulous...home made by the lovely and delightful volunteers there...a fabulous place...with an old Australian feel (memories of my grandmother and her style and taste flooded my mind)...surrounded by the...More
I had been years ago but this year went into the house as well as the garden.The house though quite small was so interesting for the times and had some unusual featutes.
The garden was really lovely though it was late autumn and the cafe...More
Beautiful gardens - the kind of place that's beautiful any time of the year. In winter, it was misty and damp and such a treat to watch the mist rising off the gums. Don't be afraid of the damp - it makes the earth smell...More
Love the history of the garden. I recommend coming here on spring time when the flowers are in bloom. My hubby and I did the walk even it's drizzling and didn't regret doing it. Don't miss reading the stories and descriptions as you go and...More
The Everglades get some mixed reviews and I think it's because people go there expecting a grand colonial house. What you'll find is an interesting enough 20th century house, but the gardens are the main attraction. The landscaping and the vision of this garden design...More
This tourist attraction is very beautiful and has much to explore with the 13 arces of beautiful terrace gardens with an old mansion and with a grotto. It would be recommended to have average level of fitness due to the uneven pathways and stair it...More
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
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 don't pay the fee.
The house is about a 200 metre walk from the entrance. The cafe is in the house, but otherwise there is nothing to see in it and indeed there is no public access to other areas apart from the amenities downstairs.
Manageable for most, my wife accessed all areas whilst using a stick 3 months after major knee surgery. Just take it steady, enjoy te views and stop and put your feet up where necessary. No lift access internally if I... More
Manageable for most, my wife accessed all areas whilst using a stick 3 months after major knee surgery. Just take it steady, enjoy te views and stop and put your feet up where necessary. No lift access internally if I recall.
