What You Can Expect

Blue Mountains Day Trip and River Cruise

Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains

Begin your experience of the Blue Mountains with morning pickup from your hotel in Sydney. After collecting your small group, your air-conditioned minicoach takes a scenic 1.5-hour drive to the town of Leura. Nibble on complimentary morning tea and have time for a look around the boutiques in town, then head to nearby Echo Point to see the majestic Three Sisters, one of the region’s most famous rock formations.

Next up, your guide takes you to Scenic World where your tour includes rides on the cable car, railway and skyway. Descend a steep track on the Scenic Railway route to arrive at a pristine rain forest landscape where you can stroll around the greenery. When you’re ready, step into the fully-enclosed cabin of the Scenic Cableway, which offers aerial views of landmarks such as Mt Solitary, Orphan Rock, Three Sisters and Katoomba Falls, then get another perspective as you soar high over Jamison Valley on the Scenic Skyway.

After your visit to Scenic World, have lunch in Wentworth Falls. Soak in views of Valley of the Waters from large picture windows in the Conservation Hut cafe as you enjoy a two-course lunch. Get a closer look at the waterfall during a leisurely stroll through the area after your meal.

In the afternoon, start back towards Sydney, stopping for a close encounter with the animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Hand-feed furry critters such as kangaroos and emus, photograph a koala and admire some of the 2,000 creatures in residence at the seven-acre park. Finally, board a boat on the Parramatta River to cruise back to Sydney in style. Get a good look at charming waterfront homes and Sydney Harbour Bridge before your boat docks in Circular Quay to end your tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

It was an amazing day. We had perfect weather. The views of the Three Sisters were awesome. We got to ride the skyway cable, the cable car and the railway. Walked the longer scenic path which took only about 30 minutes or so, a bit of a climb back up the path to catch the railway. With the tour, we were able to ride as often as we liked. The railway car was pretty cool. Lunch was good. Got to feed kangaroos and pet koalas at the Featherdale Wildlife Park. Time provided at each stop was more than adequate.
