Wildlife Waterfalls and Wine Departing Sydney

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    The experience begins when a friendly guide picks you up from your hotel between 7:00-7:30am. You'll be part of a small group of no more than 10 travellers aboard a comfortable minibus that takes you south out of the city along the beaches of Botany Bay and through the Royal National Park. There'll be time for a cuppa at Bald Hill Lookout, a popular launch site for hang gliders and para gliders, which affords sweeping views of the Illawarra coastline and the famous Sea Cliff Bridge.
    After the break it's just a few minutes drive to the family-run Symbio Wildlife Park which is active in koala conservation. Here you'll find out everything you ever wanted to know about these fascinating marsupials during a private koala experience with a keeper. Snap the ultimate selfie - just you and a koala. You’ll also be able to hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies and get up close to other native Australian wildlife.
    Next you'll meander along the Grand Pacific Drive traversing the Sea Cliff Bridge as it sweeps out over the ocean, well clear of the crumbling cliffs to which the old highway clung. You’ll continue to follow the scenic coastline 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 you’ll 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. Drop off at your hotel will be between 6:00 and 6:30pm.

    Steve took great care of our small group. Being a local, he knew where to take us and we even tracked down a beautiful singing Lyre bird in the rainforest. The winery was nestled away and warm after being outside on a winter day. Best...More
