What You Can Expect

Small-Group Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney with River Cruise

Featherdale Wildlife Park

After morning pickup in Sydney, enjoy the scenic drive to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.

Stretch your legs and meet amazing native Australian animals during a stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Want to pet a koala? You can do so there. Plus you might like to hand-feed the kangaroos and emus. Be sure to bring your camera for great photo ops!

Once you reach the Blue Mountains, stop at Echo Point to admire one of the Blue Mountains’ most heralded sights: the Three Sisters. Your guide explains local lore about this sculptural rock formation, which sits above the picturesque Jamison Valley. Next up, a nature hike to stunning Wentworth Falls. Then choose from several tour options at Scenic World (own expense). You might ride the rails or take to the air in a gondola to view the rainforest and valleys of the Blue Mountains.

Expect a break for lunch in Katoomba, a charming village in the Blue Mountains. You can either bring your own picnic or stop into one of the town’s fine cafes to purchase your lunch. Throughout the day, your guide provides informative commentary about the sights along with time for photo ops and rest stops.

As your small group-tour heads back towards Sydney in the afternoon, stop at Olympic Park, where the Olympic Games were held in the year 2000. Then hop on board a comfortable boat and glide along the Parramatta River. Take in the waterfront homes and lush greenery as you cruise back to the city. Once you pass under Sydney Harbour Bridge, it’s not long before your boat docks at Circular Quay where your full-day Blue Mountains tour ends.

Fantastic trip! The Featherdale Wildlife Park was amazing with close up encounters with kangaroos, wallaroos, wallabies, koalas and wombats. The guide was very knowledgable and friendly. The Blue Mountains were gorgeous and we had a couple of nice hikes. Would definitely recommend this experience!

Going in a small group and having a knowledgeable tour guide made for an excellent experience. ...Our guide took us to places where we were away from the large tour groups, therefore we saw incredible landscapes and fauna that they did not.... Highly recommend the small group tour.

While the weather was not pleasant, the tour was the opposite. Nigel our tour operator was informative and witty from early morning until drop off at the ferry terminal. We gained some knowledge of history etc from Nigel. Slight change of schedule of the day to suit us with some shopping at the Leura strip. Lovely lunch at The Blue Mountains with small amounts of walking to lookouts

A wet Sydney morning saw five drowned rats climb aboard Mark's minibus. We had dried out by the time we reached the wildlife sanctuary and gained two more travellers. A beautiful day awaited us in the Blue Mountains, where Mark - a mine of information on the area and Australia in general - expertly guided us away from the crowds to breathtaking views over unspoilt scenery. We had time to walk to hidden waterfalls down in the ravines. The trip included a visit to the Olympic Park and return to Circular Quay by ferry. An excellent full day out and fantastic value for money!

This small group tour was good as there was a total of 9 of us. The tour is also a little flexible as long as all of us agree on certain suggestions/changes to the original plans due to weather. Weather was bad during our tour but tour guide Mark was very helpful and attentive. He also helped all of us to purchase the Scenic World Rides tickets as we did not include this in our package. Strongly recommend this small group tour unless one prefers a crowd during the tour.
