Overview
The must-see sights surrounding the Blue Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are dazzling yet dispersed—unless you rent a car, you’re unlikely to pack it all into one day. See more sights in less time on a day tour from Sydney, which includes stops in Leura and a wildlife park. Plus, you can upgrade to include lunch and tickets to Scenic World for a seamless, budget-friendly experience.
What to Expect
Your day trip begins with pickup from your Sydney hotel, where you board an air-conditioned bus and travel across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Marvel as the ancient plateaus of the Blue Mountains come into view and, if you’ve upgraded to include an admission ticket to Scenic World, ride the world’s steepest aerial railway, take a cable car ride, and wander across the skywalk.
Continue to the mountain town of Leura to browse the shops and eat lunch, if you opted for it when booking. The next stop is a wildlife park, where you observe native Australian animals such as koalas, kangaroos, echidnas, and crocodiles.
Your tour concludes with drop-off back in Sydney.
