Blue Mountains Small-Group Insider Tour from Sydney

Immerse in the beauty of the World Heritage–listed Blue Mountains National Park. During this day trip from Sydney you’ll go off the beaten track while exploring magnificent valleys, rivers and gorges with an expert guide. Visit Featherdale Wildlife Park and Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens, hike the Jamison Valley and sightsee along Cliff Drive. Morning tea, lunch and round-trip hotel transport are included. Numbers are limited to 10 people, allowing for a small-group experience.

What to Expect
Hotel pickup will be between 7:15am and 7:30am

8:15am - 9:15am:
Visit Featherdale Wildlife Park (they will open 45 min before the official opening hours, so you will get to meet the mostly nocturnal animals long before the large crowds get here!)

10:30am - 12:15am:
Circuit walk in the spectacular Jamison Valley, including the Wentworth Falls, Mt Solitude and Ruined Castle. Short and longer walks (approximately 1-2 hours, pending on guests' agility and the weather) to discover the true beauty of the Jamison and Grose.

12:15pm - 1pm:
Sightseeing along the Cliff Drive for an intimate encounter with the Three Sisters, Narrowneck, Megalong Valley, Cahill Look-out

Aussie picnic lunch

2pm - 3pm:
Safari off the beaten track to the best lookouts of the Blue Mountains, far away from anyone.

Visit the beautiful Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens to see a variety of plants and trees (including the Jurassic Wollemia Nobilis) and exotic birds in their natural habitat including New Holland Honey Eaters, Satin Bower Birds, Eastern Robins, Eastern Spinebills, Superb Fairy Wrens, Red Wattle Birds, Crimson Rosella's and King Parrots.

4:15pm - 5:30pm:
Return via the scenic Bell's Line of Road, the Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens, Bilpin (the fruit bowl of NSW) and the Hawkesbury River area

This tour is designed to focus on those less visited spots taking more time to soak up the atmosphere in stunning rainforest gorges, ferny grottos, swimming holes and a series of cascades.
