Beat the crowds on this small-group tour of Blue Mountains National Park by four-wheel-drive vehicle. Your full-day tour begins with pickup at your Katoomba or Leura hotel or the Leura train station (an approximately 2-hour train ride from Sydney). Travel with a small group of no more than 16 people into the heart of the famed park, which straddles the Great Dividing Range and is part of a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Visit some of Blue Mountains’ more secluded sections that are inaccessible to tourist coaches, including awe-inspiring lookout points over Grose Valley and the Three Sisters rock formation. Learn about the geologic and cultural history of the park from your knowledgeable guide, and hear ancient Aboriginal legends of the land. Get an up-close perspective on the park’s natural attractions with short guided walks through eucalyptus forests and lush, waterfall-dotted valleys.
Take a tea break midmorning, and later enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch at a secluded and picturesque site. Savor a generous spread of dishes accompanied by a cheese platter and Australian wine. Continue exploring the hidden treasures of Blue Mountains in the afternoon, before returning to your original departure point at the end of the approximately 7-hour tour.
