About the Day Trip
Escape to the wilderness and enjoy the unsurpassed beauty of the Blue Mountains on this all-inclusive day trip. After collection from Sydney Hotels (please see list on right), your Driver Guide will take you to the Blue Mountains, where you'll visit Scenic World and the village of Leura. Following this, you'll spend time at Sydney Zoo and then conclude the day with a cruise on Parramatta River towards Darling Harbour. During the day trip your Driver Guide will provide entertaining, informative commentary in English. The tour is conducted on modern and luxurious Scania coaches complete with A/C, reclining seats, large panoramic windows and restrooms. Most coaches are also equipped with phone chargers and free WiFi. Please see the trip itinerary on the right.
You'll enjoy truly breathtaking views of the Blue Mountains during your visit to Scenic World. Your Unlimited Discovery Pass gives you access to ride on the Scenic Railway (the world’s steepest incline railway) into a hidden valley. Disembark at the bottom station to access the Scenic Walkway and stroll through 2.4 kilometres of Jurassic rainforest. Glide out on the Cableway for panoramic views and ride the Skyway 270 metres above ravines and ancient waterfalls.
In addition to your time at Scenic World, you'll spend some time in the quaint Blue Mountains village of Leura. Its pretty tree-lined main street is great for browsing through antique shops, art galleries and bookstores, and you can enjoy lunch in one of its popular cafés (not included in the tour cost). Take an easy walk to amazing cliff lookouts to see sights like the imposing Three Sisters rock formation.
After lunch in Leura, you'll hop back on your coach to travel on to Sydney Zoo. See native Australian animals including dingoes, koalas, wombats, Tasmanian devils and echidnas in an open range, cage-free environment. Kangaroos, wallabies and emus roam free for guests to interact with. At the Bungarribee Dreaming Experience, Aboriginal guides share dreamtime stories and knowledge about traditional tools, artefacts and bush tucker. Continue along to the native aquarium to see sharks, little penguins and enormous saltwater crocodiles.
Parramatta River Cruise
The day concludes with a relaxing cruise down the Parramatta River. Escape the city traffic and toast the sunset with a glass of sparkling wine, beer or juice. Admire the waterside suburbs and scenery along the way before arriving at Circular Quay or Darling Harbour.
