5. Sydney: Blue Mountains Featherdale and Wentworth Falls Tour
Explore the Blue Mountains region on a tour from Sydney. Discover the Featherdale Wildlife Park, a guided bushwalk, or a hike to the waterfalls at Wentworth Falls. Spend the afternoon at Echo Point and Cahill’s Lookout.
Start with pickup from your hotel in Sydney. See koalas, kangaroos, dingoes, cassowaries, and other native Australian birds and animals in the morning at Featherdale Wildlife Park.
At Wentworth Falls hike through tea-tree forests, fern gullies, cave overhangs, and past a variety of panoramic views of the Jamison Valley. The falls themselves are a delicate misty flow of water tumbling over three tiers of rocky outcrops. Your guide will be able to organize some alternative routes and shortcuts for those taking it easy.
For lunch visit Katoomba or Leura Village which offers charming cafes, restaurants, and bakeries. Purchase lunch at one of these, and enjoy some time shopping for gifts at the streetside shops.
Head on down to the Blue Mountains' most famous lookout at Echo Point. Enjoy the views at the perfect time of day, with the sun shining down the valley. See the Three Sisters illuminated and a Blue Haze in the background.
Exit the Blue Mountains via Cliff Drive with its views over Narrow Neck Plateau and the Magalong Valley. Stretch your legs one more time to discover Cahills Lookout and Boars Head, before heading back to Sydney.
