This is a small tour of the magnificent Blue Mountains including the award winning, Featherdale Wildlife Park, home to only Australian Native animals. We visit remote lookouts with stunning views, including Lincolns Rock at Kings Tableland where you will find some old aboriginal spear sharpening grooves.
Scenic Railway Rides are available but we suggest waiting to see how big the crowds are before doing the the rides as on many occasions it is extremely busy and can take up to 2 hours to complete. There is one way to ruin your day by standing in queues for hours. This is time expensive absorbing a large amount of the free time available on this one activity which will prevent you from doing much else for the afternoon. Our advice is wait as there are no refunds if you choose cancel .The Rides Cost an addition $40pp. Pay on day by CC’s or cash
We have a Picnic Lunch at one of the many scenic locations around 12.30pm. We preorder some sandwiches and rolls of your choice. It is very economical on time leaving you more time to see the sights.
Our Scenic Short Easy Walks. The walks we do are very easy and a walking shoes are a good idea. The walks are suitable for all ages and the best way to enjoy the magnificent Blue Mountains to appreciate why it such a tourist Mecca.
There are more lookouts after lunch including Echo Point, home to the Three Sisters, with some short scenic cliff top walks, the Leura Cascades walk in the rainforest is excellent for the views. very short walk and one of the best is at Gordon Falls.
Later in the afternoon we return down the Blue Mountains and with the new expressway we go straight back to the city by around 5.45pm.

Benefits of a Small Group Tour
On our Blue Mountains Day Tour there will be around 10 occasions when you will be getting on the bus and the same 10 occasions for getting off. Each of these takes a few minutes. If we allow 2 minutes getting on and 2 minutes getting off, that is a total of 40 minutes per day. If you are on a larger bus, this activity is more like 5 mins and for the very large coaches it can be 8 to 10 minutes. This could be 8 or 12 times at up to 10 minutes each time totalling something like 1 ½ to 2 hours or more. It is a large time user that eats into your day
Having Lunch can also be time expensive and this is where more time savings can be made. We pre order our lunch option so it is ready when we arrive. Saves time, is very time effective, and again, allowing more sightseeing.
There are many benefits of a small bus tour
- Small group is easier to manage and more personal
- Easy to disembark and re board the Mini Bus in a limited time.
- This means you can experience a lot more and not feel hounded all day.

BMF Tour Itinerary
The BMFL goes to Featherdale Wildlife Park (approx 1 hour) and back to the city by bus.
After the wildlife Park we continue up the mountains passing through some smaller villages to our first lookout at Kings Tableland and a remote cliff top lookout, Lincoln’s Rock. There is a lot of Geological evidence at this site of the history of the birth of the Blue Mountains dating back millions of years.
Next this Blue Mountains Tour travels to Echo Point around 11.00am for around 30 minutes before we prepare for lunch
All 3 Scenic Rides rides take about an hour or more in total. We believe it is best to book the rides on the day in case of very large time consuming crowds. If you want the rides you can pay the driver on the day and he will drop you off and pick you up later. Those not doing the rides will do more sightseeing and lookouts.
We leave the Mountains at around 4.oopm and go Olympic Park, home of the 2000 Olympics. Time permitting, we will have a short tour through the village before continuing on to the city on the new express way. Arrive in Sydney 5.45pm.
