The Tour takes in some beautiful scenery and includes a thrilling cable car ride, a breath taking steep rail car trip, a wonderful boardwalk through the bush and a visit with many of Australia's native mammals, reptiles and birds. I highly recommend it. It makes great use of a day in greater Sydney.

Great views of the Blue Mountains, but the so-called wildlife park is like a kids petting zoo, with all the attendant smells and dirt, not what I would call a wildlife park! And when the driver asked for gratuities (presumably because there were no Australians on the trip who would know better) it just capped a disappointing day trip for... More

Its a full day trip which we all enjoyed. We saw the mountains, which do look blue!. We went to an animal sanctuary and actually saw Kangaroos, Koalas, Dingo and Tazmanian Devils as well as lots of indigenous birds and reptiles. We moved to various locations on Skyway and cable-car which was an experience to the rain forest, fortunately it... More

You have to go and visit Blue mountains to understand what I am trying to convey, the journey from Sydney to the mountains, the flora and fauna, wildlife parks and finally the mountains themselves were scintillating. The Scenic World maintains the high skywalk, cable car and probably the world's steepest cable train in the mountains which made the trip a... More

You will get a chance to see a bit of the countryside, the zoo with ever so sweet Koalas and on the way back the tour showed us the Olympic Village and gave us some history of the area. Really worth while! The Blue Mountains are very attractive but a far cry from my beloved Gran Canyon in Arizona or... More

It was beautiful to see the countryside and then return to the city life at night-a good balance. the Wildlife at the conservation... More

Very nice trip. U can either book it via traveling agency or go on your own with the train. Just 2hours from Sydney city center u find yourself in the middle of wild and beautiful nature. U have the chance to see Three sisters, and walk around the touristic paths. Also Very good for those who are not great tourists,... More

Really enjoyable day out (full day). The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and had lots of good stories to tell, some very funny!! The blue mountains very nice, but not all that impressive. It has become very commercialised!! We went to Scenic World as part of the trip, great for kids, bit of fun but not fantastic. Also went... More
