Why Everglades House & Gardens?

Located in Leura, these historic gardens were constructed in the 1930s by Danish-born landscape gardener Paul Sorensen together with owner Henri Van De Velde. Spanning 5.2 hectares, Everglades Gardens is Australia’s most spectacular inter-war period gardens, and has received worldwide acclaim. Visit the Everglades House & Gardens History page to learn more.

Highlights of these landscaped gardens include:

  • Sweeping views of the Blue Mountains
  • The stately grandeur of the Moderne style 1930s-era house
  • A tranquil reflection pool and grotto pool
  • Winding paths around manicured gardens
  • The cherry blossom terrace

As the seasons change, so too does the garden: in spring there’s an abundance of flowers, including tulips and pink cherry blossoms surrounded by blossoming trees. In summer, guests will appreciate the lush green lawns and stunning sunlit views, while in autumn the heritage trees transform with red and orange foliage.

For weddings, pictures can be taken throughout the gardens, with a wealth of highly photogenic spots to choose from. Please note that this Blue Mountains wedding venue is available for wedding ceremonies only and unfortunately does not do receptions or accommodation.


When should I book my event?

Everglades House & Gardens is open six days a week (closed Tuesdays) all year round. You’re welcome to book the garden for wedding ceremonies throughout the year, during a month that suits you. Please note that the venue will remain open to the public.

Each season has its own unique beauty, from the cherry blossoms and daffodils in bloom during spring, to the rows of attractive deciduous trees aflame with orange and red in autumn.

Like all garden wedding venues in the Blue Mountains, the temperatures can get quite cool in winter. Although snow is rare, it does occasionally fall during the months of June, July and August, which gives Everglades an especially magical snow-dusted charm. However, if you are sensitive to the cold, winter might not be an ideal choice for your outdoor Leura wedding.
