Gita di un giorno alle Blue Mountains e crociera sul fiume
Dopo un breve tragitto si raggiungerà lo Scenic World per delle corse su tre attrazioni. Si salirà a bordo della Scenic Railway, la ferrovia più ripida del mondo, e si scenderà attraverso un tunnel nella rupe fino alla base di un'antica foresta pluviale! Dopo essere scesi, sarà possibile passeggiare lungo 2,4 km di sentieri sopraelevati attraverso la lussureggiante foresta pluviale.
Dalla base della foresta, si entrerà in una cabina completamente chiusa della Scenic Cableway e si salirà sulla rupe per delle viste mozzafiato delle Tre Sorelle, del monte Solitary, dell'Orphan Rock e delle Katoomba Falls. Poi ci si dirigerà verso la Scenic Skyway per un altro divertente attraversamento della Jamison Valley a 270 m di altezza dal suolo.
Dopo aver stimolato l'appetito, dirigiti verso il premiato Conservation Hut Café a Wentworth Falls, per un delizioso pranzo con vista sulla Valle delle Acque. Dopo pranzo si potrà passeggiare per i punti panoramici di Wentworth Falls.
Dopo aver ammirato un'ultima volta il Blue Mountains National Park ci si dirigerà al Featherdale Wildlife Park per vedere una varietà di fauna selvatica australiana. Si potrà anche scegliere di nutrire a mano i canguri, i koala e gli emù!
Dopo aver coccolato le bestioline, si ritornerà a Sydney a bordo di una crociera in barca lungo il fiume Parramatta, scivolando lungo le periferie che si trovano sulla riva prima di passare sotto l'iconico Sydney Harbour Bridge, dove il tour si concluderà a Circular Quay.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and was overly impressed with the quality of AAT Kings. The guide Stuart was very personable and made everyone feel welcome. He gave just the right amount of history and knowledge sharing to make the trip enjoyable. He had a great sense of humor too. Overall, this trip is well worth the cost and made for a great day. BUT, be sure you know what type of tour you are getting yourself into to avoid any issues. Here are a few pros and cons from my experience. Pros: - Featherdale wildlife was incredible. We got their super early and had the park to ourselves. You got to take selfies with kangaroos and Koala pictures (which costed extra but reasonable prices). The staff was super friendly and are all local to the neighborhood. The entire stop was perfect. - Scenic World was pretty cool and a great way to see the Blue Mountains. The pictures were pretty spectacular and the overall time there was great. We had perfect weather. - Ending with a riverboat was great. We had a free drink and awesome night views of the bridge, opera house, etc. - Schedule was very well done and gave the right amount of time at each place. Cons: - You are on a schedule so if you want to spend more time in certain places, you can't. This isn't a con for me but it's worth noting. - Hotel pickups are nice but if you are the first pick up, you might be on the bus for 30-60 minutes before you actually take off. - You are on a big group tour with a bus that seats 32 people. Personally, I loved this aspect as a solo traveler but it's not a small group. Overall, I loved this trip and it was the best part of my trip to Sydney. I highly recommend if this fits your travel goals and you know the cons up front.
We booked this excursion at the recommendation of a few other's who had done it while visiting Sydney. I'm so glad we did! It was a great day outside of the city, and the experiences we had are something that will last with us for a while. From the wild life park and getting to see so many different animals to the views of the Blue Mountains, it was incredible. The only recommendation I do have is that if you are a talker and like to interact with the tour guide, book an early pick and be at the front of the bus. Ashleigh, our tour guide, was fantastic, however unable to interact with us as we were that last pick up location and therefore at the very back of the bus.
Love, love the Blue Mountains (make sure you asked why the color of the mountain is blue. Lots of history and amazing trails to and quietness with the fresh air and to inhale and expand your lungs with clean air. In addition to the beauty of the many trees and plants that have been around for many years. Love that red train/trolley ride wish it was a little steeper but it was all fun.
Only minor point if your expecting a small group of about 10 people you will be disappointed our group was 32 people not small in my opinion but on plus side the trip was fantastic our guide Glen was excellent looked after us really well very informative really worth doing
It was excellent. Our guide Tris was simply the best. I especially enjoyed the scenery, animal sanctuary and the boat cruise back
This was probably one of the best tours we went on in Australia. Probably because we had the best guide ever, Smokey! He was really funny, friendly, and really informative. He really knows a lot about everything! Our first stop for morning tea at the town of Leura was great. The food was great with tea/coffee. Smokey is very organized as well. Our meals went very smoothly. The rides are scenic world were really fun as well. The three sisters was breathtaking. Highly recommended for families.
This was a great trip. The only thing I would change is to spend more time in Scenic World. We only had enough time to get on the cable cars and then go to our bus. But other than that it was really fun and had a great bus driver and his assistant.
