The residential suburb of Leonay is situated on the western banks of the beautiful Nepean River and nestled at the foot of the Blue Mountains Escarpment.
For many years it was considered part of neighbouring Emu Plains, first as part of Sir Francis Forbes’ Edinglassie Estate, and then taking its name from the riverside property of the well-known Australian wine grower, Hermann Paul Leopold Buring – better known as Leo Buring.
The Buring Estate was a 376 acre property featuring a commercial vineyard. Upon Leo’s death in 1961, most of his estate was sold for housing development and today individual designer homes fill the hilly area.
The suburb is bounded by the M4 Motorway, the western railway line, and the Nepean River. The landscape rises sharply from the river to the mountain whilst the golf course which meanders through the suburb. Bellbirds echo over this secluded suburb and add to the harmony of modern living and nature.
