The World Heritage listed Blue Mountains is one of Australia’s most sought after destinations. Engulfed in stunning gorges, sheer cliffs and ranges, the mountains offer majestic lookouts with views that ignite your senses, beautiful bushwalks and opulent flora and fauna.
With pick up times around 7:45 to 8:30 am (although these time vary from location to location), you’ll enjoy complimentary pick up from most Sydney City accommodation, including Manly, but please confirm 24 hours prior to the tour for exact times.
Along the tranquil western border of Sydney lies the Nepean River – this is where you’ll stop for morning tea on the way to the beautiful Blue Mountains. After enjoying your morning tea, continue your journey to the Blue Mountains and head to Kings Tableland, also called Evans Lookout. From this point, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in all the wilderness the Blue Mountains has on offer and soak up the Heritage Listed vista full of gullies, waterfalls and lush rainforest.
Enjoy a relaxing and pleasant bushwalk to Wentworth Falls – this is another place you are granted views of the Blue Mountain that are hard to beat. As you arrive at the town of Leura, spend some free time exploring the picturesque surrounds of this quaint little village. With great lunch choices and cute gift shops, Leura is a favourite with Sydneysiders.
After your wonderful time walking and exploring Leura, you’ll then move onto Katoomba, where you’ll get to visit the spectacular Katoomba Falls – experience all the wonder and natural paradise this landscape has to offer. While in the magical town of Katoomba, visit the Three Sisters rock formation and listen in awe as you hear the Indigenous legends about this famous formation told by genuine storytellers.
At Scenic World*(optional extra), also located in Katoomba, enjoy rides on a variety of attractions, including the world’s steepest incline railway track, all while being surrounded in nature’s scenery. Enjoy the rainforest from an angle unattainable from the ground.
One of the most fascinating and ancient Indigenous rock carvings is at the Dharug, thought to have been sculpted over 22,000 years ago. Enjoy this site while listening to an elder regale you with stories of the past.
Enroute along the winding road heading back towards Sydney we see Olympic Park – home of the 2000 Games. Join a cruise along the Parramatta River back into Sydney Harbour. The Rivercat is a stunning way to glide into the Harbour, as – not only do you get to enjoy all the sights and sounds – you also get to experience it in style. Arrive back at Circular Quay where the tour comes to an end at around 6 pm.

Professional and VERY experienced Tour Guides - We only employ the best....And there is a BIG difference between a bus driver and our passionate Tour Guide.
Lunch - We don't include lunch....WHY? Experience has shown us that if a set menu is included, half the group will enjoy it, but you may not. And if you don't like the lunch offered, you have no other options....... The town of Leura is full of great little take-away food places ( for the budget minded ), bakeries, great cafes, excellent restaurants, a little supermarket. You'll get to enjoy wandering around this pretty little town and YOU can choose what you have for lunch......Not US.
We include the trip up the harbour at the end of the day instead of lunch.
Scenic World Entry $39/Adult, $21/Child - payable in cash on the day.
