Leave the hustle and bustle of the city for the beautiful and scenic Blue Mountains. Visit Featherdale Wildlife Park and hand-feed kangaroos and emus, see stunning mountain views and travel through historic towns. Stay overnight at Lilianfels and enjoy a morning of exploring the countryside at your own pace.
Day 1: Sydney to Blue Mountains (L)
Departing early from Sydney and traveling to the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains, we make our first stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park, where you have the opportunity to get up-close to the animals, stroke a koala and hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus.
Then head through the northern section of Blue Mountains National Park, stopping at a number of spots for short walks and to enjoy the stunning views of these remote regions and learn about the flora. Enjoy a delicious morning tea at Bilpin before continuing through the historic town of Hartley Vale.
Lunch is in the heart of the Blue Mountains at the Katoomba Golf Club where you will enjoy a 2-course meal. After lunch you will visit Scenic World, where you can ride the Scenic Rail, the world’s steepest incline rail. The 415m descent will take you through a cliff side tunnel down into an ancient rain forest. From here, you are free to explore the Scenic Walkway which will guide you through the forest to the Scenic Cableway platform. Take the gondola for spectacular views of the Three Sisters and the rain forest. (The scenic railway and cableway are at your own expense)
The final stop of the day is the new Waradah Aboriginal Centre where you will see a corroboree (traditional dance) performed and have time to explore the art and artifacts. Your overnight stay is at the beautiful five-star Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort, housed in a historic country house set amidst two acres of manicured gardens.
Overnight: Lillianfels Blue Mountain Resort
Day 2: Blue Mountains – Sydney (B)

Please note: The Scenic Railway will be closed for maintenance from January 14, to March 29, 2013. The Cableway and Skyway will still be operating as usual.
