What You Can Expect

Best Private Tour: Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney Including Featherdale Wildlife Park

Blue Mountains National Park

Your private tour begins with pickup from your Sydney hotel by luxury 4WD or sedan. Heading west from Sydney towards Blue Mountains National Park, your first stop is Featherdale Wildlife Park. Arrive before regular park entry opens, giving you the rare opportunity to have a close encounter with native Australian animals. Try hand-feeding a kangaroo, pet a koala, and meet emus and wombats.

Leaving the everyday tourist routes behind, your private tour continues into the northern section of Blue Mountains National Park, a natural wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests. Your guide will take you off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and share the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.

You’ll stop for morning tea and homemade apple pie at Bilpin, visit Govetts Leap where the Bridal Veil Falls tumble over the sandstone cliffs, and take several short walks to enjoy the stunning views over the Blue Mountains valleys.

Next, depending on your selection, stop for lunch in Katoomba at either Echoes Restaurant or the Boiler House Cafe (see the itinerary section below for more info). Enjoy a delicious meal and take in more of those Blue Mountains views.

You also have the option of heading to other lookouts to take in more Blue Mountains views. From there you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Three Sisters rock formations and take a walk through the rainforest. Then relax on the return trip to Sydney, arriving back at your hotel at around 4:30pm.
