Day 1. Sydney - Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains Deluxe Day is a real journey into the heart of a unique World Heritage Region. From temperate rainforests to towering sandstone escarpments, you'll see and experience it all. Join us, let the landscape work its wonders and become part of you for a lifetime.
Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel as we commence our small group deluxe tour into the heart of the unique Blue Mountains World Heritage Region. The Blue Mountains National Park is one of seven national parks that make up the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. This wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests boasts luxury retreats and the world's steepest railway. Today your guide will take you off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.
Our first stop this morning is at Featherdale Wildlife Park where we arrive before any other tourists to meet the native Australian animals here - guests can actually get up close and personal, stroke a koala and hand feed kangaroos, wallabies & emus...a great experience.
Departing from Featherdale, we commence our drive to the Blue Mountains via the highway. We will travel through the picturesque village of Wentworth Falls, home to a good collection of Victorian and other historic buildings and onto the Wentworth Falls Lookout. With spectacular views over the Jamison Valley and the magnificent waterfall for which it is named, this beautiful lookout is our first stop. Here we enjoy a leisurely 30 minute round trip walk to see the Waterfalls. Continuing on we arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural attraction you can't help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colours. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and time available for you to take some great photo's.
From here, we arrive at your hotel accommodation approximately 12 noon with the remainder of the day at leisure to explore at your own pace. (Lunch own cost today).
Day 2. Blue Mountains - Sydney (L)
A leisurely morning to relax in the Blue Mountains. You are collected from your hotel accommodation approximately 11.45 - 12 noon to re-join the tour group. We arrive at our lunch venue - the historic Boiler House Cafe at the stunning Hydro Majestic Property. With spectacular views we enjoy a relaxing 2 course cafe style lunch. All diets are catered for. Beverages can be purchased at your own expense from the Bar.
The afternoon is spent visiting a selection of lookouts. Once you clap your eyes on the view from Govetts Leap you'll know why it's one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. If you're not mesmerised by the dancing waves of water spray, you'll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose Wilderness. We then drive through the picturesque village of Mt Wilson and stop to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or orange juice at a beautiful remote lookout location. The last stop is at the delightful Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens where we stop to enjoy the sweeping views across to Sydney before travelling down the Bells Line of Road to arrive back at your hotel approximately 4.30 - 5.00pm.
