Full description

Embark on a guided trip to the Blue Mountains on a full-day minivan tour from Sydney. Visit multiple lookouts and take in the views of Jamison Valley. Ride the world's steepest railway and visit Sydney Zoo.

Your first port of call will be at Echo Point, where you will have the closest and best view of the Three Sisters. Witness the blue haze and the vast expanse of the Jamison Valley, and experience for yourself the raw magic the Blue Mountains create. Next, visit Scenic World and dare yourself to ride the steepest railway in the world. The trains drive down with an incline of 52-64 degrees, but the views from the top are also spectacular. The Scenic Cableway & Skyway offers magnificent views of the Three Sisters and the Valley. After, visit the quaint village of Leura. Explore the boutique store and enjoy lunch at one of the cafes or restaurants (at your own expense).

On the way back to Sydney, venture to the Western Plains to visit Sydney Zoo — Sydney’s ultimate wildlife experience. See a koala or a wallaby with an amazing nocturnal enclosure of Australian mammals and reptiles. Sydney Zoo not only provides a huge range of Australian animals but also animals from all over the world. Your trip to Sydney is not complete without a ferry ride on the Parramatta River to Circular Quay. Travel under the Harbour Bridge and past the Opera House before disembarking at Circular Quay where your tour will conclude in the late afternoon.

Can’t say enough good things about this tour! Our guide, Scotty, really made the trip. He was so informative about the areas we went and extremely friendly and fun! Gorgeous views at echo point of three sisters, fun on the rides at scenic world, lunch in the cute town of Leura, petting kangaroos and pictures with koalas at the Sydney Zoo, and a ferry ride back to Sydney going under the Harbour bridge with views of the opera house. Perfect day!

It was a nice trip, there were only eight of us, unfortunately we weren't so lucky with the weather and unfortunately couldn't see anything because of the fog. At noon we were still in the zoo, which was great and then the return trip by boat was also great. The guide was funny and had all sorts of interesting things to say. Lunch was super tasty too.

The tour started off with views of the Three Sisters at Echo Point at Blue Mountain and then we went to Scenic world where we rode the worlds steepest railway, the cable car and walked through the rainforest. We the had an amazing lunch and continued onto the Featherdale reserve where we got up close with the kangaroos and the koalas. We then finished off with a beautiful ferry ride back to Circular Quay. It’s an experience we will remember for years to come.
