Blue Mountains is a great location just outside of Sydney. Enjoy breathtaking cliff-top views, lush rainforest gullies and towering waterfalls in this amazing World Heritage area. Pat a koala at the Wildlife Park and end the day with a River Cruise into stunning Sydney Harbour.
You’re off over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, the world’s largest steel arch bridge in the world, nicknamed ‘the Coathanger’ because of its arch-based design. Head along the Bradfield Highway towards the Blue Mountains.
Entering the National Park and winding your way along Cliff Drive, you’ll take in spectacular views of Megalong Valley before arriving at Echo point, perched on the edge of a 170 metre cliff face. Echo Point has views stretching across to the Three Sisters - a trio of rocky pinnacles. Here you’ll learn about the Aboriginal dreamtime legend of the Three Sisters.
OPTION : With the unlimited Discovery Pass ride the steepest Railway in the world down to a hidden valley. Glide out on the Cableway for panoramic views. Then ride the Skyway 370 metres above ancient ravines and dazzling waterfalls.
Imagine witnessing Australian Aboriginal culture in a contemporary gallery.

Learn about Australia’s living Aboriginal culture from the local Darug and Gundungurra tribes through informal cultural discussions and lectures. Waradah Aboriginal Centre offers a once-in-a lifetime Aboriginal experience in one location.
Next is a stop at the picturesque and quaint town of Leura. Here you can grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants and cafés, or why not choose our included lunch.

On your way back to Sydney, your route takes you via Sydney Olympic Park, the site of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. You’ll see the grand stadiums that are still used for more than 5,000 events each year. You’ll also have the option to return via river cruise into stunning Sydney Harbour.
