Blue Mountains Day Trip and River Cruise
USD 166.95
The UNESCO World Heritage–listed Blue Mountains are a must-see for anyone visiting Sydney. Eliminate the stress of organizing transportation and admission tickets on this hassle-free day trip. By traveling to the dazzling natural attraction by bus rather than train, you can stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park and Wentworth Falls along the way. Plus, a sightseeing cruise back to Sydney completes this extra-special experience.
What to Expect

Your day trip to the Blue Mountains begins with convenient pickup from your Sydney hotel. The first stop is the town of Leura, where you enjoy tea and browse the shops. Continue to the lookout at Echo Point for views of the Three Sisters, a famous and unusual rock formation surrounded by the scenic Blue Mountains.

Then head to Scenic World Blue Mountains, where you can experience rides on the railway, skyway, and cable car—all of which provide different perspectives of Mt. Solitary, Katoomba Falls, and Jamison Valley. Following your visit to Scenic World, stop at Wentworth Falls for a 2-course lunch. 

Continue on to Featherdale Wildlife Park, home to native species such as koalas and kangaroos, and then board a sightseeing cruise that returns you to Sydney in style. Pass iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, and conclude your tour in Circular Quay.

*Please note: from 25 July - 16 September 2018, the Cableway at Scenic World will be closed for maintenance. The Walkway, Skyway and Railway at Scenic World will be operating as usual during this time.

Absolutely great day trip for those with little time in Sydney. The tour guide, Glenn was great and we really enjoyed his informative commentary. Each of the places visited were enjoyable and at times thrilling! Can't recommend this day trip enough.

Yes they were all part of our tour- we took the tram over the valley and then you take the train down into the valley where you utilize the walkway to take a hike.
