This is an amazing private collection of antique toys, dolls and model railways, definitely not just for the kids! Set in Leuralla, one of the oldest houses in the Blue Mountains, this is where you'll find all the old toys your parents made you throw out when you moved out of home.
Leuralla is a taste of history from 1912. A well preserved house from 1912 with art deco interiors. It also includes The NSW Toy and Railway Museum a collection of iconic 20th Century toys (Including tin soldiers, toy planes, teddy bears, metal robots, board games and comics ) and original NSW railway signs and memorabilia preserved by the owners. Entry fee at the door.
If you're interested in history, have a look at the exhibition about "Doc" Evatt, a Leura local who went on to become Attorney General of Australia, leader of the Labor Party, and in 1948 was elected President of the UN General Assembly. The Evatt family still own and look after the beautiful Leuralla House.
Leuralla is surrounded by 12 acres of gardens, which are stunning in the Spring. Across the road is a park (separate entry fee) with huge Popeye-themed statues and fantastic views across to Mount Solitary and the backs of the Three Sisters.
Open daily 10am-5pm.
