Sydney: Wildlife, Waterfalls and Wine Small Group Tour

1. Sydney: Wildlife, Waterfalls and Wine Small Group Tour

Be part of a small group of no more than 11 travelers and journey by comfortable minibus, south along the beaches of Botany Bay and into the Royal National Park. Wind through the forest and stop at Bald Hill Lookout, which affords sweeping views of the Illawarra coastline and the famous Sea Cliff Bridge. Next, it's on to the family-run Symbio Wildlife Park, active in koala conservation. Find out everything you ever wanted to know about these fascinating marsupials during a private koala presentation with a keeper. Snap the ultimate selfie - just you and a koala. You’ll also be able to feed kangaroos and wallabies and get up close with native Australian wildlife. Continue to follow the scenic coastline of the Grand Pacific Drive across the Sea Cliff Bridge as it sweeps out over the ocean and on to Bulli Beach where you’ll enjoy lunch in a café popular with locals that overlooks the beach and an ocean pool. Bring your swimmers for a pre-lunch dip if the sun is out. In the afternoon head up through temperate rainforest into the Southern Highlands. An easy hike leads to viewpoints that take in the spectacular sandstone gorges and towering waterfalls of the Morton National Park. Finally, you’ll drive along country roads to a boutique winery near Berrima, one of Australia’s oldest towns, to taste locally-produced, cool climate wine before returning to Sydney. Arrival back at Circular Quay is around 6:30 PM.

What people are saying about Helensburgh

My husband & I had the time of our lives on this tour w/ the owner, Steve. As Americans traveling to Aus, this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip for us. It turned out to be an increible choice. It was just 4 of us + Steve on the tour that day, which made for a very personal tour. He took us to Symbio Wildlife Park, which was a truly lovely place where we got to pet koalas, have a great discussion with a zookeeper, pet & hand-feed the kangaroos, & much more. We had a drive along a gorgeous coastal road, with a delicious lunch at a local cafe at a table that had breathtaking views of the ocean. We visited Morton Nt'l Park & went on a short, pleasant hike & had more amazing views of a waterfall, & down to the valley floor. Steve educated us on native flora & fauna w/ a tremendous knowledge of so many different birds, mammals, & plants. Fascinating! Finally, we went to a lovely little winery, with a fantastic wine tasting. A day we will NEVER forget! - Julie & Scott Gray, Baton Rouge, LA USA

This tour was exactly how it is stated in the details. The Zoo was great! We saw the Koala’s up close and pet them & Fed the Kangaroos. Lunch was Fabulous and so was the Winery. Steve was the Best guide! He was very informative of everything we did. I would recommend this tour because you will see and do things you wouldn't get to do when you visit Sydney.

This experience is worth every penny! Steve was an amazing tour quide, so friendly and knowledgeable! We loved Steve! The Zymbio wildlife park was excellent! Staff super friendly. The zoo keeper helping us with the Koala experience was so sweet. If looking for the experience of a lifetime! look no further 10 stars! you will not be disappointed.

A great group of travelers and Steve was a great guide who truly loves what he does. A good pace and although the fires made visiting the waterfalls impossible, it was still a full day of interesting places and wildlife. Highly recommend!

It was a perfect day with beautiful views of the ocean, an exquisite drive through the Highlands and the national forest and best of all the koala sanctuary. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and genuine.
