Leura is a popular tourist destination, with many examples of colonial architecture and several well-known attractions. It has a reputation as an artists' town, and was named one of Australia's top ten holiday destinations in 2009. History The area around Leura was originally inhabited by the Wiradjuri people before European settlement began in 1810 when Governor Lachlan Macquarie granted land to William Cox for his service during the Peninsular War (1808–14). The first building constructed on this grant was known as "Cox's Cottage", which still stands today at Fernbrook near Glenbrook. In 1882 John Britty North bought land from Cox's son Edward James Cox and built "Northview" on it; this house became famous after being visited by Lord Baden-Powell who used it as headquarters during his visit to Australia in 1929. The name 'Leura' comes from an Aboriginal word meaning 'waterfall'.
