Escape the city for the beauty of the Blue Mountains on a full-day small-group tour from Sydney traveling by comfortable air-conditioned minicoach. Shake off any sleepiness at your first stop in the quaint mountain town of Leura; you'll enjoy a complimentary morning tea and stretch your legs as you take in the boutiques and art galleries. Afterward, continue your drive to nearby Echo Point where you’ll have great photo opportunities of the Three Sisters rock formation.

A short hop takes you to Scenic World for rides on three attractions. Board the Scenic Railway, the world’s steepest railway, and descend through a cliffside tunnel to the floor of an ancient rainforest! Disembark and have the option to walk along 1.5 miles (2.4km) of elevated walkways through the lush rainforest.

From the forest floor, you’ll step into the Scenic Cableway’s fully-enclosed cabin and ascend the cliff, getting breathtaking views of the Three Sisters, Mt Solitary, Orphan Rock and Katoomba Falls. Then head to the Scenic Skyway for more fun as you glide across the Jamison Valley, soaring up to 885 feet (270m) above the valley floor.

After working up an appetite, head to the award-winning Conservation Hut cafe in Wentworth Falls for a delicious 2-course lunch with views across Valley of the Waters. Then enjoy an easy walk around the Wentworth Falls lookout points after lunch.

Catch a last glimpse of Blue Mountains National Park before you head to Featherdale Wildlife Park to see a variety of Australian wildlife. You can even opt to hand-feed kangaroos, koalas and emus!

After cuddling the critters, return to Sydney on a boat cruise up the Parramatta River, gliding past waterside suburbs before going under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, where the tour ends at Circular Quay.
