Jerry Schwartz acquires Leura Gardens Resort in the Blue Mountains


Schwartz Family Company has added to its portfolio of properties in the Blue Mountains with the acquisition of Leura Gardens Resort.

Joining the Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains and Leura Golf Club, Leura Gardens Resort is the 15th hotel in the Schwartz hotel network and was acquired for $25 million from the Elanor Hotel Accommodation Fund.

The recently refurbished Resort offers 92-rooms set in four and a half acres of landscaped gardens. It offers a choice of studio, family, and self-contained apartments in addition to multiple conference and events spaces, and onsite restaurant the Olive Tree Restaurant.


The hotel will now operate in conjunction with Fairmont Resort and Leura Golf Course to offer one of the most comprehensive conference and event venues in regional New South Wales.

Jerry Schwartz said the hotel purchase was well timed with the announcement that the NSW Blues rugby team would establish a training base in the Blue Mountains, using the facilities at both the Fairmont and Leura Gardens.

“The Blue Mountains is Sydney’s holiday playground and one of the most popular destinations for weddings, retreats, leisure groups, conferences and events, and by bringing these three venues together, we can offer a complete tourism solution,” he said.

“Leura Gardens Resort’s 3.5-star accommodation will complement the 4.5-star accommodation at the Fairmont, while we can also offer multiple different venues for functions along with the renowned outdoor activities that the Blue Mountains is famous for.”
