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.

Great day out. No negatives at all. Real value for money. Driver Juliano was excellent and also acted as a guide, giving lots of information and advising on the best things to see, best order in which to see them.

This was a great day out - so much to see, and fun to go on all the rides. Our tour guide was absolutely brilliant and knew so much about the landscape and the things we could see on the route, as well as some of the history of the area. There was a bit of a problem with very heavy traffic an accident ahead when we were returning to Sydney, so he organised that as many of us as wished to could take a boat back to the centre, rather than having to hang around. I would recommend this trip.

Blue Mountains is an awesome place to visit. The rides, especially the train ride, is epic! We took lots and lots of great photos. Our only regret is that the time allotted for the tour is too short to fully explore and enjoy Blue Mountain. Maybe next time we'll spend a couple or more days there.

Great trip by AAT Kings. Our driver John S was good fun and very knowledgable. We had prepaid for the rides at Scenic World which was good value. The Featherdale Wildlife Park was interesting and the baby koalas were adorable!

We enjoyed a bus tour to the Blue Mountains with AATKings. The bus picked us up at the scheduled destination on time. Our driver,Henry, was informative and entertaining. It was obvious to us that he enjoys his job and takes pride in his work. We were glad that we took the river cruise back to Sidney as an option.

I would love to go back at some point. It was so peaceful to walk through the Blue Mountains I could have spent the whole day there.

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.
