Blue Mountains 1 night
Day 1 Sydney/Blue Mountains: Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel as the tour heads into the heart of the unique Blue Mountains World Heritage Region. The first stop this morning is Calmsley Hill, a working farm involved in animal rehabilitation, giving you the chance to get up close and personal to a range of animals including kangaroos and koala bears. Continue the drive to the Blue Mountains, visiting one of a range of stunning outlooks of the Jamison Valley. Continue to Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous Three Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains feature so much more than this natural attraction you can’t help but admire their unquestionable beauty and, whilst here, your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation. On reaching the hotel the remainder of the day is at leisure to explore at your own pace.
Day 2 Blue Mountains/Sydney: After a leisurely morning, travel to Blackheath for lunch at the Hydro Majestic, a relaxed venue with stunning views. The afternoon is spent visiting a selection of lookouts including Govetts Leap, one of Australia’s most famous lookouts with views of the magnificent waterfall. The final stop of the day is at the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens where there’s time for a walk through the gardens. Arrive back in Sydney late afternoon.
