If you’re after a quiet weekend in a charming town with spectacular scenery, cosy accommodation, and great food, Leura is your gal. This Blue Mountains heritage town blends European romanticism with the laid back vibe of the Australian bush. Its tree-lined streets boast antique stores, art galleries, many cute cafés and divine restaurants; not to mention the famous Three Sisters, Wentworth Falls and endless scenic bush walks nearby, if you can drag yourself away from the fireplace.

Tip: Head to the 1913 Solitary Restaurant and Café perched above the Leura Cascades for a scrumptious bite to eat with uninterrupted views all the way to the Southern Highlands.
