After morning pickup in Sydney, drive over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and stop in picturesque Leura en route to the Blue Mountains.
Upon arrival in the Blue Mountains, stop for about an hour at Scenic World, where you can take three rides—the Scenic Railway, Scenic Skyway, and Scenic Cableway—that provide sweeping views of the dramatic landscape.
Next, make a photo stop at Echo Point, which overlooks the Megalong and Jamison Valleys, and the area's iconic Three Sisters. Then learn more about native culture at the Waradah Aboriginal Centre, a cultural center that features Aboriginal song, dance, and didgeridoo. There you can meet an Aboriginal elder and browse artwork by indigenous artists.
Get a close look at Australian wildlife, including koalas and kangaroos, at Featherdale Wildlife Park before heading back to the city. Top off your day with a scenic 40-minute cruise down the Parramatta River to Sydney Harbour.
