Highlights

  • Instant Confirmation
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
After being picked up from your selected Sydney hotels, sit back and relax as you enjoy a scenic coach trip from central Sydney to the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.

As you wind your way through the national park, your tour takes you through the Blue Mountains' biggest town, Katoomba, with its century-old guesthouses and charming shops and cafes.

Continue on to Echo Point, one of the region's best vantage points. Take in stunning views of the dramatic canyons and rocky cliffs, over the Megalong Valley to the photogenic pinnacles of the Three Sisters.

Your tour also takes you along the ridge-top Cliff Drive, with more stunning views over the Blue Mountains and valleys as you travel to the amazing Jenolan Caves. Here, take a guided tour through the oldest open cave system in the world, stretching underground for more than 25 miles (40 kilometers). Admire the dramatic lighting in this subterranean world of underground rivers and floodlit limestone stalactite sculptures, and visit Jenolan's largest cave, Lucas Cave, where concerts are held in the acoustically perfect Cathedral chamber. At certain times of the year, the tour might take you to the equally impressive Imperial Cave instead of Lucas Cave.

Choose the option to include the Plughole Adventure Tour, and add an exciting two-hour abseiling and caving experience. After dressing in overalls, harness, a helmet and headlamp, receive a safety briefing before your thrilling 30-foot (9-meter) abseil into Elder Cave.

Whether you're an abseiling novice or expert, Elder Cave will astound you with its chambers and sinkholes. Squeeze through increasingly longer chambers, including the Window and Crystal chambers. Relax in the open space of the Chapel, try the Armchair Squeeze and Letterbox Squeeze, then follow the S-bend through the Imperial Cave and into the daylight.

Leaving the Jenolan Caves on your return drive to Sydney, stop to admire the beautiful Blue Lake, whose mineral-rich waters take on an incredibly blue hue in the sunlight. At the end of your Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves day trip, be dropped off at selected Sydney hotels in the late afternoon.

Reviewed by: MICHAEL C, June 2014

Guide (Henry) was engaging and informative, keeping up a playful monologue. At the same time he drove with utter confidence, amazing skill and commitment to safety.

The length of the stay at the main stopping points was utterly correct. Even on a day of picture-perfect skies and mild temperatures, when we would of course wish to linger as long as possible, we did not feel as though were being ushered.

The only negative would be the underemphasis of the reasonableness of the prices at Jenolan Caves. We were surprised, after the prices in Sydney, to find we could purchase tasty food and sit in a delightful setting without having to empty out our pockets. It would have been helpful to know this ahead of time, as it would have lessened the one anxiety we had about the day.

We had such a great trip! The coach was so comfortable and the driver so patient. There were just enough stop overs and plenty of time to look around and do your own thing. And the best bit was the hotel pick ups and drop offs. Such a time and hassle saver!!! Would highly recommend the tour.
Just one thing of note that the site doesn't mention - you sort of do require a certain level of fitness for the cave tour coz its like total of 900 steps and if you are claustrophobic you might not enjoy the caves as much. have fun :)
