Day 1: Blue Mountains Sunset & Wilderness Day Tour
Avoid the crowds on this relaxed exploration of the Blue Mountains! Explore the changing moods of the Blue Mountains in the late afternoon sunlight and capture the sunset over the rugged ranges and valleys. This tour is designed to avoid the peak hour traffic of Sydney with later departures and returns to maximise our time enjoying the stunning scenery and native forests. With a late morning departure, you will have extra time to explore Sydney before joining this tour to one of the world's most spectacular World Heritage-listed national parks. Located 50 kilometres from Sydney CBD, the Blue Mountains is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna and is rich in Aboriginal heritage. A rugged mountain range of unique sandstone formations and cliffs, the Blue Mountains is known for its dramatic landscape. and surrounded by giant eucalyptus trees, which create a blue haze that lives up to its name. After a delightful picnic lunch, we’ll explore the amazing Jamison Valley. Get up close to the storied sandstone formation, the iconic Three Sisters.
Hike along some impressive bush trails toward one of the most breathtaking waterfalls in New South Wales, then settle in to watch the sun sink behind the distant mountains casting shadows over the rock formations and eucalyptus forests. On the journey home, please take a quick break to grab some dinner (own expense) before we go kangaroo spotting! Many of Australia’s native animals are much more active at dusk, and we’ll explore some of the secret spots where we are most likely to find wildlife.
