Enjoy this Blue Mountains small group tour from Sydney with a maximum of 10 guests as you discover magnificent valleys, rivers and gorges of the World-Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park. Experience the true beauty of the Blue Mountains off the beaten track, as you immerse yourself in the spectacular wilderness in an area that you can’t appreciate without getting your shoes dirty. Starting no later than 7:30 am to avoid the traffic, you’ll head straight off towards Australia’s own Grand Canyon for an eventful day packed with close encounters, vistas and walks. The drive to the foothills of the Blue Mountains only takes about 1.15 hours, as – unlike most operators – we take all toll roads to avoid the morning traffic. On the way, we happily include a 1 hour visit to the popular Featherdale Wildlife Park. This petting zoo offers the chance to see most of Australia’s iconic animals up close: Wombats, kangaroos, emus, goannas, wallabies, koalas and even a crocodile. There are also many birds, snakes and lizards to see. The real adventure starts as soon as we take the scenic Blue Mountains Drive that takes us to Wentworth Falls. From there we’ll go on a 1.5 hour circuit walk in the majestic Jamison Valley. Further stops along the valley allow us to take in the breathtaking views of the Three Sisters, Orphan Rock, Mt Solitary, Narrow Neck and the Megalong Valley. Afterward a lunch break at the mountain town, we head into the rugged, much less visited Grose Valley An easy stroll through the waratah's, golden wattles and scribbly gums of the open woodland takes us to breathtaking views over the valley locals call Australia's Grand Canyon. Keen hikers may choose to tackle the spectacular Cliff-top walk from Govett's Leap to Evans Lookout. The flowering grass trees, mountain devils, eucalyptus trees and acacias attract a variety of honeyeaters, rosellas and other Australian birds, which we can observe amazingly well.
