Sit back and relax as you travel into the amazing Blue Mountains. Your Driver Guide will provide details of the day's itinerary while you enjoy the journey west.
As you head toward the iconic Blue Mountains, you'll drive through the tourist town of Katoomba, the gateway to the region. Katoomba first became known in 1879 when a coal mine was established here. The town now features lovely heritage cottages, a well-established guest house and hotel industry and many cafés and restaurants.
* Echo Point
From Echo Point you'll be treated to a view that is spectacular. This mountainous World Heritage region covers an area of up to 10,000 square kilometres and features dramatic cliffs, deep canyons and lush vegetation, particularly eucalypt. When first discovered by the European visitors, the Blue Mountains had already been home to the Gundungurra people for what is believed to be millions of years and evidence of their culture and spirituality can be found throughout the region.
* The Three Sisters
Also from Echo Point you can see the imposing Three Sisters. According to Aboriginal legend, this unusual rock formation represents three sisters who were turned to stone. They stand an incredible 922, 918 and 906 metres respectively and are an amazing sight as the sun shifts to cast magnificent colours across the rock face.
* Jenolan Caves
Now you head to the Jenolan Caves via the stunning scenery of the Cliff Drive. On arrival you'll meet your experienced Guide who will take you through the oldest known open cave system in the world. Known to the local Aboriginal people as 'Binoomea' (Dark Places), the Jenolan Cave system stretches over an enormous 40 kilometres of multi-level passages, many still undergoing explorations. There are nine caves open to visitors, all featuring amazing lighting, underground rivers and limestone formations.
* Lucas Cave
You'll be captivated by Lucas Cave, the largest of the Jenolan Caves. Its chambers are simply incredible. The highest chamber, reaching 54 metres, is known as the Cathedral and, with its incredible acoustic capabilities, has provided the setting for many underground concerts. At certain times, Lucas Cave will be replaced with a visit to Imperial Cave.
* Blue Lake
Before heading back to the city, you simply must take in the beauty of the Blue Lake. This gorgeous sight is the result of mineral laden water seeping through the limestone caves. When cast in sunlight, the lake takes on the most captivating vivid blue colour. Definitely a great photo opportunity!
