Starting early from Sydney, we’ll arrive in the Blue Mountains, and immediately be immersed in the stunning Australian bush. Descending through the canopy of sub-tropical rainforest, you’ll be surrounded by the fresh scent of the Eucalyptus forest as you follow the magical Leura cascades to the valley floor.

At the bottom, we can rest under the historic rotunda, listening to the song of bellbirds echoing through the forest, before following a moderately flat trail that curves under the soaring sandstone cliffs. Our guides love what they do, and they’ll take the time to share fascinating facts about the plants you see along the way, the geological phenomenons of the mountains, and as much human history as you can handle!

Arriving at Scenic World, we’ll ride out of the valley in style on the World’s Steepest Railway, before stopping for a well-deserved break and a gourmet picnic lunch; a kaleidoscope of fresh produce and local artisan products from the region. For the rest of the tour, we’ll stay high above the valley. Several dramatic lookouts will provide expansive views of the famous Three Sisters, the mighty Mt Solitary and the entire Jamieson Valley, stretching as far as the eye can see. Ending the tour with a final, memorable immersive experience, we’ll hop back on our private air-conditioned bus and head back to Sydney’s CBD.

This tour is perfect for anyone who wants a locally guided experience, away from the crowds and amongst the beautiful nature that made the Blue Mountains so famous!
