Leura Cascades picnic area is managed by Blue Mountains City Council and is located outside Blue Mountains National park.

This scenic spot is a reviving break on a day trip, long walk, scenic drive or cycling trip in the Katoomba area of the Blue Mountains.

Lie back in the shade and be serenaded by the gentle tinkering of the nearby waterfalls and local birdlife. You might hear the distinct call of the bell miner or the mimicking song of the lyrebird here.

With a picture perfect backdrop, why not make the most of the opportunity and assemble the family for a group photo? Tuck into a leisurely lunch as you memorise the magnificent views.

The nearby Fern Bower circuit walk is a heart-pumper, or if you’re after a leisurely stroll, follow the track downstream to the top of Bridal Veil Falls or take the Prince Henry Cliff Walk east towards Gordon Falls lookout.
