Blue Mountains Day Tour from Sydney
The BM1 Tour and BM2 Tour are very similar. The difference is that the BM1 goes to Featherdale Wildlife Park in the late afternoon whereas the BM2 Tour does some more Sightseeing.
Both Tours are are on separate buses
7.15am to 8.00.am Your Blue Mountains Tour commences with pick ups from various city hotels and locations.
8.00.am Depart the city and travel out over Sydney Harbour Bridge on the freeway to the Blue Mountains about 1 hour’s distance.
9.00.am Arrive at Glenbrook for a 30 minute break for some morning tea and a visit to the Blue Mountains National Park Office where they stock a vast array of maps, books, souvenirs and our favourite the 3D post cards. A fabulous momento of your Blue Mountains Tour and easy to pack to take home.
9.30.am Depart for upper Blue Mountains with our next stop at Kings Tableland.
9.30am to 10.15.am. En route we through the towns of Glenbrook, Blaxland, Springwood, Lawson and Wentworth Falls which are on the main road from Sydney and serviced by the excellent Blue Mountains Trains service. Many people live in the Blue Mountains towns and commute to Sydney city every day.
10.15.am We visit our most remote Blue Mountains Lookout, Kings Tableland, which was recently renamed Lincoln’s Rock after the famous Mt Everest Conqueror with restricted access to small buses. Fabulous views!
11.00.pm Our next stop is at Senic World. This attraction is the most popular in NSW having 3 different cable car rides for you to enjoy. See more details about Scenic World on that Attractions page. If you are doing the rides we will arrange tickets for you. It takes around 1 hour to complete all the rides and a the brief walk on the Walkway at the bottom of the valley. The driver has a credit card machine on the bus and can process a credit card payment. Mastercard or Visa cards accepted. If you prefer to forget the rides we will have you doing some easy short walks along the cliff top, you will be able to choose between easy walks around the cliff face. We will be able to advise you on the suitability of some walks for you.
12.00pm It is time to visit the Three Sisters at Echo Point. This amazing sandstone attraction is millions of years old and caused by erosion. It is a must see and of course get a photo while you are here.
12.30pm to 1.30pm After around half an hour or so at Echo Point for it is time for some lunch. The two towns where we have lunch is at either Leura or Katoomba. We will take you to one of them where there numerous cages and food outlets for you to get a lunch. After lunch you will have time to stroll around the shops.
1.30.pm Depart our lunch location and continue with some more sightseeing. There are numerous lookouts and a great walk around the cliff tops to the Cable cars. A fabulous easy walk of about 35 minutes.
Another favourite is to climb onto one of the three sisters to a wind cave. (see the photo) over a small bridge known as Honeymoon bridge as it is a favourite for photos.
