We were picked up at our hotel promptly at the specified time. Our driver and guides were both excellent. The harbour cruise included a seafood buffet that was great and although I am selective about what seafood I eat, there were plenty of different dishes to choose from. The bus tour portion included stops at St. Kilda and Brighton beach, both of which provided some wonderfully colourful photos and experiences.
On the second day, we headed out to the Blue Mountains on a day much better than had been predicted. The Blue Mountains had mostly cleared off after the bush fires, which provided good photo opportunities. Our first stop was the Featherdale Wild Life Park and this was truly a highlight of my entire six week holiday. I was so excited to be able to touch so many of the animals exclusive to Australia. If this had been the ONLY stop on the tour, I would still have been satisfied, but we went on to the Jamieson Valley in the Blue Mountains. There were beautiful views of the valley and the Three Sisters rock formation. Following that we opted to take the 4 different ways to see the valley. We rode the cable car, tram and steep railway as well as walked on the valley floor.
It wasn't over yet. We then went to Leura where we were allowed some time to shop in the lovely independent shops were vintage, new and art items could be purchased.
It wasn't over yet. On the way back because we were ahead of schedule, the bus driver took us through the 2000 Olympic facilities at Homebush.
I doubt if anyone could ask for more from a tour.
