The Everglades Gardens are a historic property in Leura, New South Wales, owned by the National Trust of Australia.

History and description[edit]

The house and gardens were built in the 1930s by designer Paul Sorensen,[1] and feature elaborate sandstone terraces, sweeping lawns, and European-style landscapes against a backdrop of native bushland. The gardens have views over the Jamison Valley, part of the Blue Mountains National Park.[2] They are open to the public.[3]
