We spent some time looking around Leura.  The main street is the Leura Mall, which has a number of "interesting" shops (for those who are into such things) and casual eating places.   Its charm isn't lessened by the Woolworths, because as a relatively late addition, it doesn't have a frontage to the street, but is set behind other shops.

Of particular interest is Leura Cellar's "Downunder" cellar - quite a large collection of mature wines, all for sale.  Prices, of course, reflect the age of the wines, so you'd need to know what you were doing before buying!  All those wines from the '80s.   Why didn't I put a dozen or so away then? 

We had lunch at Zest (previously Fresh) - nice coffee, innovative casual food and some interesting beers.   Then we had dinner at the Alexandra Hotel.   This is tucked away on the other side of the railway line to the main part of Leura, between the railway and the highway, so it can be a little tricky to get access to (and from) it.   However,   it's worth making the effort:   good pub food, generous serves and reasonable prices.
