Overview
This stress-free tour packs in more landmarks in less time, and includes visits to Wentworth Falls, Scenic World, and a return river cruise. Unless you rent a car, covering the Blue Mountains on a day trip from Sydney is a daunting task, and you risk overlooking some of the area's top attractions—this tour helps you avoid those common pitfalls. Plus, unlike similar trips, you enjoy views of Sydney’s 2000 Olympic Park on the way back.
Itinerary
Highlights
  • Cover the Blue Mountains with ease in a day from Sydney
  • Pack a full day of sightseeing into your trip without having to worry about logistics
  • Visit the Three Sisters, Wentworth Falls, and Scenic World
  • Only pay for chosen activities at Scenic World and Katoomba
  • See the 2000 Olympics Park before cruising back to Sydney
  • Group limited to 20 for a more intimate experience
What to Expect
After pickup in Sydney, journey to the UNESCO-protected Blue Mountains National Park. On route, visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park, a haven for native wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, and emus. Opt to hand-feed the kangaroos with supervision from trained staff or have your photo taken with a koala. Both activities are at your own expense.  Then, continue into the Blue Mountains as your guide provides commentary on the scenery. Visit Echo Point for views of the Three Sisters, the three pinnacles towering over the forest-filled Jamison Valley. After a nature walk to the Wentworth Falls, head to Scenic World park. Here, choose your preferred activities (own expense), perhaps descending into the Jamison Valley via the Scenic Railway or Cableway, or taking a glass-floored gondola over the rainforest. Afterward, expect a lunch break in Katoomba village before a brief stop at Sydney’s 2000 Olympic Park and a River Parramatta cruise back to Sydney’s Circular Quay, where your tour ends.

We liked the fact that the tour didn't make you visit and shop at places you weren't interested in. They simply take you out there and back and you decide what "extras" you want to do. Our driver/guide, Steve, was very knowledgable and also entertaining.

A generally satisfactory overview of the Blue Mountains which are stunning to see and should be on anyone’s itinerary when visiting Sydney. Everything fitted in on a busy day but, having said that, felt every stop off was rushed. In essence, got to see everything but would have

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We try to strike a balance between showing our guests as many of the amazing sights as possible, without feeling rushed from place to place. There is just so much to see! We're sorry you felt rushed but we hope you can look back and appreciate just how much you were able to see in one day. The majority of feedback we receive mentions the great value for money guests feel after spending a jam-packed day with us, so we endeavour to strike this balance on each of our tours. Similarly, our TripAdvisor feedback showcases just how much love there is out there for Steve! He's a genuine Aussie character, and we welcome opinions of all sorts: it also gives a little insight in to how the locals feel on a range of topics in Australian society :) Our tour guides aren't robots, but rather each and every one bring their unique personality to our tours - something our guests have shown to appreciate. All the best for the rest of your time in Australia, the Activity Tours team.
