Join us for this action-packed tour exploring the World-Heritage listed Blue Mountains and then a pleasant trip to the Featherdale Wildlife Park. Crisp, clean, fresh mountain top air with distant blue haze horizons overlooking deep ravines with rainforest carpeting the valley floor. Waterfalls, sleepy hamlets and the rich warm smell of the Australian bush make this a very special place for every visitor.
Cross the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and enjoy the spectacular views. Climb into the mountains via the sleepy hamlets of Blaxland, Leura, Wentworth Falls and Lawson whilst feeling like a true adventurer and embracing the natural world around you. See the iconic Katoomba, the regional capital of the Blue Mountains and enjoy breathtaking scenery and sights over the Jamison Valley. Discover the quaint mountain village of Leura where you’ll have plenty of free time to wander the streets.
Next we’ll visit Scenic World where you will have the opportunity ride all the unique attractions (not included.) You can ride the steepest incline Railway in the world down to a lush and hidden valley below. Or gently ascend on the Cableway, exposing you to panoramic views and ride on the Skyway which glides between the clifftops 270 meters above ancient ravines and the rainforest canopy. Walk on the valley floor boardwalk under a canopy of tall tree ferns. This is such a fun yet educational park, truly worth checking out.
After, we’ll stop at Echo Point and see the famous Three Sisters rock formation up close, perfect to snap up the perfect photo. We’ll also have the opportunity to meet an Aboriginal Elder and visit the Waradah Aboriginal Centre and celebrate Aboriginal song, dance, didgeridoo and culture (not included).
Upon your return to Sydney we visit Featherdale Wildlife Park – one of Australia’s largest private collections of native animals and birdlife. Hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus and watch out for the crocodile! Have your photo taken with a cuddly koala at Featherdale (use your own camera and it's FREE!). On the way home, we pass the mighty Homebush Bay landmark, or more commonly known as the 2000 Olympic Games site. See the stadiums and facilities of the millennium Olympics. Finish off your memorable day with a river cruise down the Parramatta River. Tour will conclude at either King Street Wharf in Darling Harbour or at Circular Quay.
