What You Can Expect

Sydney Shore Excursion: Small-Group Blue Mountains Day Trip

Kangaroos in the Blue Mountains

When your ship docks in Sydney, be sure to take time to visit Blue Mountains National Park, a national treasure located about two hours from the city by car. Travel in comfort aboard a deluxe air-conditioned bus with a stop for morning tea in Wentworth Falls, a quaint town near the national park.

After light refreshments, continue to Echo Point for excellent views of the Three Sisters, an impressive rock formation with a fascinating legend behind it. Then gain insight into aboriginal life during a visit to Waradah Aboriginal Culture Center. Watch a dance performance, hear didgeridoo music and listen to a talk about the culture.

As you travel through the Blue Mountains, your guide takes you to lookout points, waterfalls, swathes of rainforest and Jamison Valley where you can get excellent photo ops and take short nature walks that let you experience this stunning terrain up close. You’ll also hear about the history and legends of the region as you stop at key locales.

Have lunch at a restaurant in Katoomba with views overlooking the scenic landscape, then enjoy some free time to explore this charming mountain town.

On the way back to Sydney, your group stops at Featherdale Wildlife Park, located on the outskirts of the metropolitan area. As many as 2,000 native Australian critters live at Featherdale in enclosures that mimic their natural habitat. Admire exhibits with saltwater crocodiles, wallabies, wombats, bats, reptiles and emus. You might even get to cuddle a koala or feed a kangaroo by hand.

The final leg of your return takes you past Sydney 2000 Olympic Park. Hop on board and cruise down the Parramatta River to Sydney. Keep your camera handy for a new perspective on Sydney Harbour Bridge as you come into Circular Quay.
