Blue Mountain Day Tours are an ideal way of getting around The Blue Mountains and taking in the sites.

The most famous tour spot in this area is Echo Point lookout. Echo Point is one kilometre above sea level and looks out over the Jamison Valley to the Great Dividing Range. From this vantage point, you can view The Three Sisters, a rock formation of great significance to the Aboriginal people and their Dream Time.

Scenic world is perched on the western escarpment of Katoomba Falls. Here, you will find the Scenic Railway, Skyway and Cableway. The views on these rides are amazing. The Scenic Railway, is the steepest incline railway in the world.

Some Blue Mountains Tours visit Featherdale Wildlife Park, where you can see Australian native animals and birds. Hand feed a kangaroo or wallaby and pat a cuddly koala.

Bushwalks

There are a number of different guided bushwalks you can choose from. One walk is through the Jamison Valley out to the Ruined Castle, which includes a ride on the Scenic railway. The Ruined Castle is a rock formation and has 360 views of the area.

Another walk is the Aboriginal Walkabout. This is an eight-hour bushwalk. The guide will show you some stunning aboriginal landscape, and an understanding of the local Darug culture. Swim in a clear billabong with a waterfall, experience some bush tucker and much more.

Mountain Biking

For the more adventurous there is guided mountain bike riding, these vary from two hours, half day and full day. The tracks are well maintained with a few steep inclines. The views are amazing.

The Blue Mountains is an ideal place to go for an enjoyable day out, there is so much to see and do. For tourists visiting Sydney it should be put on the top of the list of things to do. Blue Mountains Tours takes the stress out of driving, and you can sit back and relax.

  1. I love the Blue Mountains and visit regularly to walk in the mountains.
    Echo Point is spectacular, but very, very busy at weekends. If you’re planning a Blue Mountains tour at the weekend, it might be good to try a less ‘popular’ place in the Blue Mountains and leave Echo Point for a week day visit.
    ..and if you go walking, wear hiking boots of walking shoes. Leave the thongs (aka flip flops) and ugg boots at home 🙂

    • Hi Jan

      Agree weekdays are the best time to visit Echo Point, I find Wentworth Falls is not as busy. Definitely need good shoes for bush walking, thongs are not the go.

  2. One of my favourite parts of all NSW. When learning to fly in 1979 – 1980 we frequently flew over the area. It’s stunning from the air, but not a good place to be caught in low cloud, trying to return to Sydney

    • Hi Harry

      I can only imagine how spectacular the Blue Mountains would look from the air. I know when the weather is not good Echo Point can be enshrouded in cloud and mist. Visibility in these conditions would not be good in a plane.

  3. The Blue Mountains looks like a wonderful drive next time we are visiting Sydney as I would like to visit the Three Sisters.

    We live in a beautiful country and driving through the Blue Mountains is on my to do list. 😉

    Thank you
