WHAT DO WE OFFER?
Blue Mountains Tour Active Day Trip AUD $99 – max 10 guests
We offer daily tours from Sydney to the Blue Mountains. Our Blue Mountains Tour Active Day Trip spends the whole day in upper parts of the Blue Mountains. Our first stop is at Wentworth Falls. It is the centre of outdoor activities, namely bushwalking, abseiling and canyoning.
Having a small group allows us to take round circuit Undercliff Track, considered to be one of the best easy walks in the Blue Mountains. It takes around 1 hour 20 min. There are some steps and no rails on the track. We pass many lookouts, and you will have plenty of time to enjoy the scenery. Princess Rock Lookout, Fletchers Lookout and Weeping Rock offer the best photo opportunity. The track offers great variety, it passes heath, swamp and open forest areas, in addition to interesting geology.
We spend lunchtime at Leura, beautiful garden town located 10 min away from Wentworth Falls. The Mall is a small strip lined up with cafes, restaurants, galleries and shopping arcades. The most known is the Candy store. You will have free time for lunch and explore the Mall. You are welcome to bring your own lunch as well.
The afternoon is very relaxed, we visit lookouts offering views of Jamison Valley and Megallong Valley. Of course, we visit Echo Point in Katoomba, best spot to see the Three Sisters rock formation. We also visit lookouts not available to big coaches, to stay away from big crowds.
Blue Mountains Tour & Wildlife AUD $135 max 10 guests
offers the Best of the Blue Mountains plus visits the wildlife park. We are spending around 1 hour 20 min at Featherdale wildlife park. It has the biggest collection of Australian wildlife, they do offer hands-on experience with wallabies and kangaroos. You can buy for $3 a cone of kangaroo feed. It is safe to hand-feed them.
We arrive before big coaches to avoid busy period. When in the Blue Mountains, we stop at lookouts, namely Lincoln Rock Kings Tableland, Cahills Lookout overlooking Megalong Valley and Three Sisters at Echo Point Katoomba. The short walk takes place just before lunchtime, we visit Leura Cascades. Both tours are family-friendly, however, Blue Mountains Tour & Wildlife is less active and kids love visiting a wildlife park.
Our tours include all entry fees and sightseeing, the cost of lunch is not included. The only optional extra we offer is unlimited entry to Scenic World (extra $44). It is located in Katoomba and is known for Railway Skyway Cableway and Walkway attractions. Attractions operate every 10 min, however, you need 2 hours for the visit. It is popular and waiting times can vary from 15-20min to up to 1 hr in peak Christmas times per attraction.
We recommend visiting Scenic World at lunchtime, as it is less busy. If you choose to visit Scenic World, the guide will drop you off, organise the tickets, show you around and later on picks you up in front of Scenic World. Other tour operators take all customers to Scenic World. The ones that do not visit the attraction, take the walking track in the area. Our minibus is not parked at Scenic World. You can leave the belongings in the car if you like.
Return to Sydney via RiverCat, arriving at Sydney Harbour at 5.20 pm. (ticket is included)
