Featherdale Wildlife Park

After morning pickup in Sydney, enjoy the scenic drive to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.

Stretch your legs and meet amazing native Australian animals during a stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Want to pet a koala? You can do so there. Plus you might like to hand-feed the kangaroos and emus. Be sure to bring your camera for great photo ops!

Once you reach the Blue Mountains, stop at Echo Point to admire one of the Blue Mountains’ most heralded sights: the Three Sisters. Your guide explains local lore about this sculptural rock formation, which sits above the picturesque Jamison Valley. Next up, a nature hike to stunning Wentworth Falls. Then choose from several tour options at Scenic World (own expense). You might ride the rails or take to the air in a gondola to view the rainforest and valleys of the Blue Mountains.

Expect a break for lunch in Katoomba, a charming village in the Blue Mountains. You can either bring your own picnic or stop into one of the town’s fine cafes to purchase your lunch. Throughout the day, your guide provides informative commentary about the sights along with time for photo ops and rest stops.

As your small group-tour heads back towards Sydney in the afternoon, stop at Olympic Park, where the Olympic Games were held in the year 2000. Then hop on board a comfortable boat and glide along the Parramatta River. Take in the waterfront homes and lush greenery as you cruise back to the city. Once you pass under Sydney Harbour Bridge, it’s not long before your boat docks at Circular Quay where your full-day Blue Mountains tour ends.

A very good journey, that includes Australians animals, good spots, breathtaking views and a river cruise in a single day. Specially if you have a guide like Mark that adds enthusiasm and knowledge to your trip. Highly recommended indeed!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This tour was brilliant value for money and the whole day was thoroughly enjoyed. It seems tour guides interpret the agenda for the day in their own way. The morning was spend in the wildlife park which was brilliantly quiet. My sister and I saw the koalas, fed the kangaroos and other native animals of australia.

We then moved over to the blue mountains. In the van on the way our tour guide explained various facts about the mountains. We went to various lookouts including echo point. The mountains are beautiful and some of the views were breath-taking. We then had around an hour hike at katoomba falls. This was incredible. We ended up descending on 1100 steps to the bottom and travelled back up on the steepest railway in the world. The scenic world attractions seem great however we decided against the cable cars as it would not add anything to the views.

Overall brilliant day with a great tour guide well worth choosing a small group

Excellent value for money. Pick up on time, friendly knowledgable tour guide called Steve. Myself and my husband were the only ones on the trip so we had Steve to ourselves for the day who thoroughly looked after us. We visited the Wildlife Pk and then the blue mountains view where we got great photos but after that the weather went downhill so unable to see 3 sisters. Scenic attractions weren't that scenic unfortunately because if the cloud but river cruise was fantastic. Great day!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. Steve our driver and travel guide was very entertaining! Our group was laughing the whole time. Good job Activity Tours! And more power to Steve!
