What You Can Expect

Blue Mountains Day Trip and River Cruise

Scenic World Valley

Begin your experience of the Blue Mountains with morning pickup from your hotel in Sydney. After collecting your small group, your air-conditioned minicoach takes a scenic 1.5-hour drive to the town of Leura. Nibble on complimentary morning tea and have time for a look around the boutiques in town, then head to nearby Echo Point to see the majestic Three Sisters, one of the region’s most famous rock formations.

Next up, your guide takes you to Scenic World where your tour includes rides on the cable car, railway and skyway. Descend a steep track on the Scenic Railway route to arrive at a pristine rain forest landscape where you can stroll around the greenery. When you’re ready, step into the fully-enclosed cabin of the Scenic Cableway, which offers aerial views of landmarks such as Mt Solitary, Orphan Rock, Three Sisters and Katoomba Falls, then get another perspective as you soar high over Jamison Valley on the Scenic Skyway.

After your visit to Scenic World, have lunch in Wentworth Falls. Soak in views of Valley of the Waters from large picture windows in the Conservation Hut cafe as you enjoy a delicious lunch. Get a closer look at the waterfall during a leisurely stroll through the area after your meal.

In the afternoon, start back towards Sydney, stopping for a close encounter with the animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Hand-feed furry critters such as kangaroos and emus, photograph a koala and admire some of the 2,000 creatures in residence at the seven-acre park. Finally, board a boat on the Parramatta River to cruise back to Sydney in style. Get a good look at charming waterfront homes and Sydney Harbour Bridge before your boat docks in Circular Quay to end your tour.

Our tour guide Andrew, from AAT King travel, was great, very knowledgeable and took us to the Blue Mountains for the day, and it was good value as included train trip and cable car as well as a trip to one of the towns in the Blue Mountains. A lovely breakfast snack and lunch were provided, so overall very good value for money and it was a highly enjoyable day.

The trip was very well organised from the time we were picked up at our hotel. The driver/courier was very informative and friendly. The lunch was of very good quality and the service was excellent. The views we were shown were breathtaking. The river cruise topped off an excellent day tour. Well done Viator!

Great tour. Loved our guide Smokey. Did not care for the place we stopped for tea in Leura. Change back to Wazygoose...loved their scones in a flower pot.

AAT King organized a great day out to the Blue Mountains, stopping for a morning break in Leura and then into the Blue Mountains and nice lunch, with the return including Featherdale Animal Park. The river cruise at the end into Sydney Harbor was great! Highly recommend this for a full day of fun.

We had beautiful weather up in the mountains and a wonderful guide. In the afternoon it rained for our river cruise but it was still beautiful. I highly recommend the small group tour over the larger 48 person tours. More time to spend at sites, easier to get lunch etc.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Knowledgeable driver, tremendous views rounded off with the boat trip back into central Sydney.
