Everglades House & Gardens has reopened with timed entry tickets, Thursday to Monday 10am – 4pm following the COVID-19 shutdown. We are thrilled to welcome you back to the beauty of this Art Deco house and meticulously designed gardens. The interior of the house is open, but the Tea Rooms will remain closed (No Food & Beverage service).
History of the Everglades House & Gardens
The rare beauty of Everglades House & Gardens in Leura – one of the most exquisite villages of the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains region – is a site you have to see when you visit New South Wales. The Moderne-style 1930s house is set amongst 5.2 hectares of gracefully designed gardens. From Everglades House & Gardens, you can enjoy sweeping views over Jamison Valley to Mt Solitary.
What will you see when you visit
Named ‘The Everglades’ by the original owner of the house, Georgina Stonier, in 1923 the architecture was complemented by its world-renowned gardens in the 1930s. Designed by Danish-born landscape gardener, Paul Sorensen, Everglades treats its visitors to the most spectacular example of inter-war period designed gardens in Australia. Enjoy the tranquil reflection pool, the grotto pool and walk the winding paths down the terraced garden. Ordinarily, we would invite you to enjoy the delicious fare available at the Everglades House & Gardens Tea Room – however – with physical distancing restrictions currently in place this is not possible. We recommend visitors bring morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea and enjoy a picnic on the beautiful grounds instead.
Everglades House & Gardens makes a wonderful location for special occasions including weddings, parties, private and special event hire. You will have seen the gardens and house feature as the location in a number of films, television programs and magazines because of its beauty and location.
