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.

This tour was great! John S, our tour guide, was energetic, informative and fun! He went the extra mile offering to take photos of people and was a great guide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

Very good tour and our coach driver Henry was very helpful and knowledgable. The mountains were amazing to see and the steep train ride was something else. The zoo was good and had enough animals to visit and a quick stop off at the Olympic park was nice to see too. Definitely recommend.

Nice tour. We did lunch on our own and I don't regret it - there were plenty of good options. Stop at wildlife park was fun too. Kids loved it.

This was an awesome trip! Our bus driver shared a lot of great information on the drive. It was a bit foggy at the blue mountains but we had plenty of time to enjoy the rides and go for a hike. The stop at Featherdale wildlife park might have been the highlight! So many local animals to see!
