Embark on a Blue Mountains Day journey that is unlike any other in this immersive experience of the lush World Heritage site.
Travel by coach about 1-hour north of Sydney in to the cherished Blue Mountains National Park. Instantly find yourself awestruck by the vast expanse of hazy, blue eucalyptus forest that reaches out far over the rocky valley below.
Your Blue Mountains tour gives you an in-depth look at not only the highlights of this natural wonder, it also allows you to depart from the main tourist track to showcase areas that few other visitors ever get to see.
Start your day off with a visit to Euroka Clearing. This off-the-beaten-path spot is located deep in the heart of Blue Mountains National Park. You’ll stop here with your group for morning tea or coffee with your guide, along with some local delicacies to get your day going.
Then, you’ll be taken to the can’t miss destinations of Jamison and Mealong Valleys, where you’ll see the spray of tall waterfalls spilling over rocky cliffs in the distance.
You’ll become “one with nature” on the highlight of this trip. Embark on a 2-hour self-guided hike along the top of the Grose Valley with amazing views of the valley below. Enjoy a packed lunch in a remote wilderness area while you feel the earth under foot and smell the eucalyptus in the air.
Next, you will continue your hike around the Blue Mountains where you can enjoy amazing views of the Gross Valley before arriving at Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens. Upon arrival at the gardens you can relax and have a refreshing glass of sparkling Aussie wine as you gaze upon the sweeping views. As you embarke on your scenic drive back to Sydney you will have time to sit back and to recount all the amazing memories you just made in the Blue Mountains.
The Blue Mountains Deluxe Day is a real journey into the heart of a unique World Heritage Region. From temperate rainforests to towering sandstone escarpments, you’ll see and experience it all. Join us, let the landscape work its wonders and become part of you for a lifetime.
Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel as we commence our small group deluxe tour into the heart of the unique Blue Mountains World Heritage Region. The Blue Mountains National Park is one of seven national parks that make up the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. This wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests boasts luxury retreats and the world’s steepest railway. Today your guide will take you off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.
Our first stop this morning is at Featherdale Wildlife Park where we arrive before any other tourists to meet the native Australian animals here – guests can actually get up close and personal, stroke a koala and hand feed kangaroos, wallabies & emus…a great experience.
Departing from Featherdale, we commence our drive to the Blue Mountains via the highway. We will visit one of a range of stunning outlooks of the Jamison Valley seeing beautiful vistas. Where possible this will be away from the crowds of tours that visit the mountains each day, thus our guests will enjoy a stress and hurry free environment taking in the views and information imparted by their guide.
Continuing on we arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural attraction you can’t help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colours. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and time available for you to take some great photos.
Travelling around the mountains, we arrive at Evans Lookout where you will be issued your lunch pack and instructions on the hiking track. This is without doubt one of the most scenic hikes available in the mountains taking you across a number of valleys and ridges as you hike from Evans Lookout to Govetts Leap all the while looking out across Australia’s Grand Canyon, The Grose Valley. Once you clap your eyes on the view from many points along this track, you’ll know why it’s one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfalls drop a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. If you’re not mesmerised by the dancing waves of water spray, you’ll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose Wilderness.
The last stop is at the delightful Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens where we stop to enjoy the sweeping views across to Sydney before travelling down the Bells Line of Road to arrive back at your hotel approximately 4.30 – 5.00pm.
