This is your chance to become one with nature on an up-close and personal hike off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.

You will meet your local, professional and knowledgeable guide directly at your hotel first thing in the morning where they will escort you in comfortable transportation to experience true Australia.

Your first stop of the day is at Calmsley Hill, a working farm also home to Kangaroos, Emus, Wombats and Koalas. Enjoy a delicious morning tea and then be provided with time to wander at your leisure around the grounds.

From Calmsley Hill you will continue to ascend the Blue Mountains via the scenic highway. Visit one of a range of stunning outlooks of the Jamison Valley offering beautiful, panoramic vistas. Your tour is arranged to allow you an experience away from the crowds of tours, where most available, that visit the mountains each day with other operators. Your guide will do their very best to ensure you a stress-free and enjoyable day in a relaxed environment, taking in the magnificent views and imparting their valuable knowledge.

Continuing you will soon arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural attraction you can't help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colors. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and make time available for you to take some great photos.

Travelling around the mountains, arrive next at Evans Lookout where you will be given your lunch pack and instructions on the hiking track. This is without doubt one of the most scenic hikes available in the mountains taking you across numerous valleys and ridges as you hike from Evans Lookout to Govetts Leap all the while looking out across Australia's Grand Canyon, The Grose Valley.

The Hike Concludes at Govetts Leap, one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfalls drop a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. If you're not mesmerized by the dancing waves of water spray, you'll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose Wilderness.

Your last stop of the day will be at the tranquil Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens where there will be time for a short, but rewarding, walk amongst the flora including the ancient Wollemi Pine (Wollemia Nobilis).

At the end of the day you will be returned to Sydney and your hotel.
