10-hour tour by car covering heritage, culture, mountains and wildlife


The Blue Mountains is a World Heritage listed region with spectacular scenery and charming mountain villages. We drive to the highest point at Katoomba, which is approximately two hours from Sydney.

We pass through mountain country, passing through the small towns to several spectacular lookout points, including Echo Point's Scenic World cable car, mountain railway and gondola. Here you can walk through the dense forest on the valley floor. We can also visit the Waradah Aboriginal Centre at Echo Point.

We'll have lunch at Echoes Restaurant overlooking the spectacular Jamison Valley.

Returning from the top of Blue Mountains we can stop en route at either the historic Norman Lindsay Gallery in Springwood or the Featherdale Wildlife Park in Doonside. Featherdale is an award winning wildlife park which is a great place to get up close to native Australian animals, including having your photo taken with a Koala. Here Kangaroos, Wallabies and Emus roam free. Vehicle hire included.
