Leave the city behind and head for the hills! On this small-group day trip to the Blue Mountains from Sydney, start the day with a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park, where you will get up close to some of Australia’s cutest and furriest creatures. You can hand-feed the kangaroos and emus, and have a photo taken with a koala! Next, continue to the Blue Mountains and explore this UNESCO World Heritage-listed park. At Echo Point, hear the legend of how the Three Sisters rock formation got its name and take in the spectacular views over Jamison Valley.
