The day starts with a pick-up from your hotel. Then begin the journey to the Blue Mountains. Stop at Kings Tableland or Evans Lookout for photo-worthy views of the Blue Mountains.

From here, take an easy bushwalk to Wentworth Falls for more views, before stopping in the small country town of Leura where you have time to explore on your own and choose from a great variety of restaurants and cafes for lunch (own expense).

Then it’s on to Katoomba, the heart of the Blue Mountains, where you see the Three Sister’s rock formation and learn some Aboriginal folklore about the site. 

You can then explore Scenic World a popular attraction with cable cars, a skyway, the ‘world’s steepest railway’, and other activities at an additional cost

Then avoid traffic and take a river cruise along the Parramatta, which leads you back to the Sydney Harbour where your tour ends.
