What You Can Expect

Blue Mountains Nature and Wildlife Day Tour from Sydney

Blue Mountains

Part of a UNESCO World Heritage site, Blue Mountains National Park offers a spectacular natural playground just 1.5 hours from Sydney. Your full-day wilderness adventure begins with pickup at your Sydney hotel and a drive across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. 

See the park’s ancient plateaus and valleys come into view along the spectacular Cliff Drive. Visit Scenic World, at the edge of the park near Katoomba, where you can ride the world’s steepest passenger railway and get an aerial park view from a gondola skyway (if option selected, see Itinerary below for details). Take in panoramic views of the Megalong Valley and the Three Sisters rock formation and hear the Aboriginal legends associated with the awe-inspiring landscape.

For a taste of mountain culture, visit the charming township of Leura. Browse antique shops, indulge your sweet tooth with authentic international treats at The Candy Store, and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (own expense, or included if you choose the lunch option; see Itinerary for a sample menu). 

After lunch, visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park for an up-close encounter with native Australian animals. Hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies, snap photos of sleepy koalas, and observe exotic birds in a natural bush setting. Relax on the scenic return drive to Sydney, where your full-day tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the early evening.

We took this tour to get out of the city and see some of the countryside, and we weren't disappointed. The Blue Mountains were gorgeous, the town of Leura was cute, and the Featherdale Wildlife Sanctuary was a great place to see Australian animals. I highly recommend this tour, the AAT Kings bus was comfortable and clean and our coach driver Peter was knowledgeable and entertaining.

A little confusing how the tour pick-up at the YHA central worked with so many busses there. Other than that, very fun, easy to relax, nice bathroom in the bus, great tour guide, the zoo was nice.

We saw all the nice views without having to wait. The extras were good - lunch was good, rides were necessary. Tom, our guide was the best as he shepherd all of us, organised, told stories, and made sure that we all had what we need for a comfortable and enjoyable day! The AAT Kings tour was perfect. This was first stop for our 15th anniversary. Everything was smooth.
