On this day tour from Sydney you will journey to the Blue Mountains to enjoy mountain top vistas and rare underground worlds. Home to over 400 different animals living in the beautiful trees, rainforests, and swamps, the Blue Mountains are a truly unique ecosystem all their own.
Set out towards the Blue Mountains, and travel through the mountain villages of Blaxland, Wentworth Falls, and Lawson. See Katoomba, the resort capital of the Blue Mountains, and enjoy views over stunning eucalypt forest and age-old rock formations. While you're in the Blue Mountains, see the sights of Leura, which comes from the Aboriginal word meaning "lava." There you can see the Three Sisters, a rock formation that stands 900 meters high. Legend says that the three sisters fell in love with three men from a nearby tribe. However, they could not get married, as tribal law forbade it. The brothers, unhappy with the law, decided to capture the sisters. After a major battle, the sisters were transformed into stone. Throughout the tour, your knowledgeable tour guide will share fantastic Aboriginal folklore like this to give you some insight into the land and the culture of the Blue Mountains.

This was a great excursion! Graehm, our tour guide was knowledgeable and courteous and the bus ride was very comfortable. The Blue Mountain scenic park was beautiful! We loved the cave tour as well, and even stopped along the way to visit with a mama kangaroo and her joey on the side of the road! Highly recommend this tour!
Good arrangement. Good service
