What You Can Expect
Departing early from Sydney and traveling to the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains, we make our first stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park, where you have the opportunity to get up-close to the animals, stroke a koala and hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus.
Then head through the northern section of Blue Mountains National Park, next stop is Scenic World, where you can ride the Scenic Rail, the world’s steepest incline rail. The 415m descent will take you through a cliff side tunnel down into an ancient rain forest. From here, you are free to explore the Scenic Walkway which will guide you through the forest to the Scenic Cableway platform. Take the gondola for spectacular views of the Three Sisters and the rain forest. (The scenic railway and cableway are at your own expense)
The final stop of the day is the new Waradah Aboriginal Centre where you will see a corroboree (traditional dance) performed and have time to explore the art and artifacts. Your overnight stay is at the beautiful five-star Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort, housed in a historic country house set amidst two acres of manicured gardens.
Arrive at your hotel around 12noon and enjoy the rest of the day at your own leisure.
