Full description

Visit multiple lookouts in the Blue Mountains Region on this tour. Your first port of call will be at Echo Point, where you will have the closest and best view of the Three Sisters. Witness the blue haze and the vast expanse of the Jamison Valley, and experience for yourself the raw magic the Blue Mountains create. You'll have the option of ordering breakfast or a coffee (at your own expense) while enjoying the views.  Next, visit Scenic World (included in the price of the tour) and dare yourself to ride the steepest railway in the world. The trains drive down with an incline of 52-64 degrees, but the views from the top are also spectacular. The Scenic Cableway & Skyway offers magnificent views of the Three Sisters and the Valley. Your tour guide will then take you down to the valley floor whilst explaining the area and coal mine. After, visit the quaint village of Leura. Explore the boutique store and enjoy lunch at one of the cafes or restaurants (at your own expense). On the way back to Sydney, venture to the Western Plains to visit Sydney Zoo — Sydney’s ultimate wildlife experience.

See a koala or a wallaby with an amazing nocturnal enclosure of Australian mammals and reptiles. Sydney Zoo not only provides a huge range of Australian animals but also animals from all over the world. A perfect way to end a magnificent day interacting with Australia’s native fauna. Finally, drive back to the city to four major drop-off points where the tour concludes.

The tour started off with views of the Three Sisters at Echo Point at Blue Mountain and then we went to Scenic world where we rode the worlds steepest railway, the cable car and walked through the rainforest. We the had an amazing lunch and continued onto the Featherdale reserve where we got up close with the kangaroos and the koalas. We then finished off with a beautiful ferry ride back to Circular Quay. It’s an experience we will remember for years to come.

Our guide was very informative and entertaining. When there was a great amount of fog, he kindly adjusted the schedule so we would have a better chance of seeing the Blue Mountains once the fog had moved. The sights were brilliant and majestic. The visit to the zoo was great- we were able to feed Kangaroos and see some of Australia’s unique wildlife. Lunch was good as well, as was the bus- which was brand new. Overall a fantastic experience.

All of the activities were enjoyable and provided a chance to see some of the iconic landscape. The trip to Featherdale was also enjoyable and the worthwhile. The included lunch offered lots of selection.
