What You Can Expect

Blue Mountains Day Trip and River Cruise

Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains

Escape the city for the beauty of the Blue Mountains on a full-day small-group tour from Sydney traveling by comfortable air-conditioned minicoach. Shake off any sleepiness at your first stop in the quaint mountain town of Leura; you'll enjoy a complimentary morning tea and stretch your legs as you take in the boutiques and art galleries. Afterward, continue your drive to nearby Echo Point where you’ll have great photo opportunities of the Three Sisters rock formation.

A short hop takes you to Scenic World for rides on three attractions. Board the Scenic Railway, the world’s steepest railway, and descend through a cliffside tunnel to the floor of an ancient rainforest! Disembark and have the option to walk along 1.5 miles (2.4km) of elevated walkways through the lush rainforest.

From the forest floor, you’ll step into the Scenic Cableway’s fully-enclosed cabin and ascend the cliff, getting breathtaking views of the Three Sisters, Mt Solitary, Orphan Rock and Katoomba Falls. Then head to the Scenic Skyway for more fun as you glide across the Jamison Valley, soaring up to 885 feet (270m) above the valley floor.

After working up an appetite, head to the award-winning Conservation Hut cafe in Wentworth Falls for a delicious 2-course lunch with views across Valley of the Waters. Then enjoy an easy walk around the Wentworth Falls lookout points after lunch.

Catch a last glimpse of Blue Mountains National Park before you head to Featherdale Wildlife Park to see a variety of Australian wildlife. You can even opt to hand-feed kangaroos, koalas and emus!

After cuddling the critters, return to Sydney on a boat cruise up the Parramatta River, gliding past waterside suburbs before going under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, where the tour ends at Circular Quay.

This was a wonderful day. Great value and a fabulous driver and guide. We would definitely recommend it and have already done so!

The tour guide JD, i think was informative and humorous. Breakfast and lunch was good. The time allocated for each location was sufficient to take some photos and do some shopping, if you like. Sunset from the Parramatta wharf/river was beautiful. Love the Tawny Frogmouth at the zoo.

It was really well organised. We were collected promptly from our hotel and then joined our small coach for the trip. The tour was much more than expected and included morning tea, lunch, cable car and train at the Blue Mountains, the wildlife park (and pics with koalas) and boat ride home. All fab!

Amazing time in the Blue Mountains. We had a great, small tour of people and 3 wonderful, fun and knowledgeable tour guides. You get to see so much in one day, its worth every penny. I highly recommend the trip, even in winter!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This trip was awesome! We got to visit many great places and John S, our guide, was fantastic - he was really knowledgeable about the places we visited, friendly and a great laugh. He even offered me his own lunch when mine was a little late in arriving. What a guy! It was a full on day, and we were exhausted by the end of it - which was great 'cos we really got our money's worth. The cruise back to Sydney was a perfect way to round off the day
