What You Can Expect

Blue Mountains Day Trip and River Cruise

Scenic World Valley

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 delicious 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.

We spent a very enjoyable day in the Blue Mountains in March. Our driver was very friendly and looked after everyone well. We had a lovely lunch, included in the price. I wasn't really looking forward to the visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park as I'm not particularly fond of zoos but it was surprisingly enjoyable. The cruise back to Sydney was great and I would recommend this option.

The tour was perfect just what we wanted. Our guide, Smokey, was incredibly entertaining....a modern day Crocodile Dundee. We knew we had to see more of Sydney than the city, and were blown away by this scenic area 90 minutes away. It was screaming windy and showery, so the gondola was a little extra excitement. The stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park was one of the highlights for us, providing some neat up close and personal interactions with a koala. The boat ride back to Circular Quay beat the heck out of the Friday afternoon traffic.

A great day and we crammed in SOOO much. Our guide James was brilliant. The funicular was a highlight along with the cable car. Sadly no crocs were spotted on the River cruise but the boat trip was great fun anyway. Definitely recommend this tour.
