On this amazing full-day tour, you’ll take in the sights of the Blue Mountains, including Katoomba, The Three Sisters, Jamison Valley, the Jenolan Caves and Blue Lake. The Blue Mountains is spiritually and historically significant to the original owners and many cultural relics can be seen throughout the region.
With a morning pickup (approximately 8am) from the Star City Coach Terminal, Pirrama Road, Sydney, or earlier from your CBD accommodation, you'll be able to relax and take in the scenery on your way to the Blue Mountains. Your driver will tell you about your day ahead on your journey to visit the following locations:
Katoomba - the gateway to the Blue Mountains, is a quaint mountain town that was established in 1879 and still retains its old-world charm. Attractive heritage hotels, guest houses, restaurants and cafe's are in this lovely area.
The World Heritage listed Echo Point is a mountainous area offering stunning views over its 10,000 square kilometre area. Deep canyons edged by majestic cliff faces and full of lush eucalypt forests create the ideal photo opportunity.
The Three Sisters
The Indigenous inhabitants of the Blue Mountains believed that the Three Sisters - named Meehni (922 m), Wimlah (918 m), and Gunnedoo (906 m) were turned to stone to protect them from being kidnapped by another tribe's men. The elder that turned them to stone was killed in the ensuing battle and nobody was able to turn the sisters back. You can see the Three Sisters from Echo Point, resplendent in the morning sunlight.
The magnificent Jenolan Caves are reached by following the scenic Cliff Drive. You'll enjoy a guided tour through these fascinating and beautiful caves - the oldest open cave system known, being awe-inspired by the lit stalagmite and stalactite formations along the way. The caves stretch a whopping 40kms through a multi-tiered network. The Indigenous locals called this place 'Binoomea', meaning 'dark places'.
Lucas Cave is the largest and most popular cave at Jenolan Caves. While here, you'll be taken to the 'Cathedral' a 54 metre high chamber that is often used to host concerts, due to its amazing acoustics. If Lucas cave is unavailable, you'll instead be taken through the 'Imperial Cave'. (Please note that the guided tour of Lucas Cave has over 900 steps. You will need to be able to walk unassisted to participate in the tour.)
