Stretching for over one million hectares the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains are an inspiring mix of rainforest, canyons and tall forests, truly one of Australia’s natural wonders. This rugged and beautiful region forms part of the Great Dividing Range - linking tropical north to temperate south. Later, enjoy seeing unique Australian wildlife at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Get up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and wombats. Pass by Homebush Bay, site of the 2000 Olympic Games. Discover Leura village - a delightful blend of groomed gardens and quaint shops. Stop at Echo Point and see the famous Three Sisters rock formation and discover the aboriginal dreamtime legends. Follow the scenic Cliff Drive and enjoy breathtaking views of the Megalong Valley. Travel through Katoomba - heart of the resort region within the Blue Mountains and enjoy an easy walk and stroll along the boardwalk through the Rainforest. Time for a light lunch. Ride the steepest incline Railway in the world down to the lush and hidden valley. Glide out of the valley on the Cableway taking in the panoramic views and take a ride on the recently unveiled Skyway, a journey 370 metres above ancient ravines and dazzling waterfalls. Take in the fabulous views from Govett’s Leap Lookout then enjoy a guided bushwalk along the Fairfax Heritage Walk. Return to Sydney having an unforgettable day.
