Enjoy a Blue Mountains private tour from Sydney, exclusively for your group of up to 11 guests. Visit cliff-top lookouts for stunning views of the mountains, including some of the quieter spots. This tour also includes a visit to a wildlife park in the west of Sydney, where you can get up close to iconic Australian animals. Travel by spacious people mover or minibus. .
Our Blue Mountains private tour begins with pickup from your Sydney CBD location at 7:30am. Heading out of the city, we first visit Featherdale Wildlife Park, located in western Sydney (entrance fee applies). The park’s focus is on Aussie animals, so it’s the perfect chance to meet some iconic Australian wildlife. You can get up close to a koala for that perfect photo, feed a kangaroo, and discover the unique nature of Australian fauna. We like to get here early, before larger tour groups arrive. Feel free to wander around the park on your own, or your guide will show you around and tell you about the various weird and wonderful creatures found across Australia.
Our first major stop in the Blue Mountains is in the Wentworth Falls area, where we get our first real look at the majestic valleys in this region, and learn about the geology, flora and fauna of this UNESCO World Heritage site. The Blue Mountains are known for views like these, so there will be plenty more to come.
Around Midday we enjoy lunch in the neighbouring village of Leura. This idyllic town has a good range of boutique shops, cafés and restaurants for you to discover. We will discuss lunch options with you and suggest a suitable venue. He can also make a reservation ahead of time if required. (Lunch is at guests’ expense.)
From here, it’s a short drive to Katoomba, which has some of the most well-known views and rock formations in the Mountains, including the Three Sisters. Hear the Aboriginal Dreaming story of their creation as you take in the sweeping panorama of the Jamison Valley. For those who feel like stretching their legs, we can take a walk along the cliff top through rainforest vegetation and passing Katoomba Falls.
After a day of sightseeing, we return to Sydney CBD and drop you off at your hotel at approximately 4.30pm.
- Guests can choose not to visit the wildlife park and spend more time in the Mountains instead
- In Katoomba, guests may choose to visit Scenic World, which is a popular attraction, especially for groups with kids. Here, you can enjoy the cable cars, train ride into the valley, and a boardwalk through a section of rainforest (entrance fee applies, prior booking required during peak times and subject to availability).
- Ferry return. From the west of Sydney, take a public ferry ride along the Parramatta River and across Sydney Harbour. (Ferry at own expense.) You would then make your own way back to your hotel.
