Take a small-group guided adventure to the Blue Mountains on this fun, active day trip from Sydney. You'll have the chance to spot Australian wildlife such as kangaroos, see stunning waterfalls, go on a long walk through the epic landscape of the Blue Mountains, enjoy a light lunch, swim at a beautiful swimming hole (summer only), and finish the day with a well-earned drink. Pickup is included from central Sydney backpacker hostels.
After morning pickup at designated points in central Sydney, your day trip to the Blue Mountains begins at a bush reserve, where you can see kangaroos and other Australian animals. Then visit a historical village, and take a guided 2-hour walk to see some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Australia in this UNESCO World Heritage–listed environment, including Wentworth Falls and the Three Sisters lookout. Afterward, relax over a picnic lunch before trekking to a secluded waterfall for a swim (weather permitting).Head back to Sydney in the evening, where you'll stop at a local bar near the Central railway station for a provided glass of wine, beer, or soft drink. Your day trip ends here. Note: This is a day trip but you have the opportunity to leave the tour and stay longer in Katoomba if you wish (for up to a month), and then just jump on another bus back to Sydney.
