Day 2

The Rocks Walking Tour

Historic Sydney Walking Tour brings alive the story of the early convict settlement, while entertaining visitors with stories of "Rascals, Rats, and Restoration". The tours are conducted by friendly and enthusiastic guides who, by relating the many tales of Australia's colourful past, capture and hold the visitor's imagination.

Let your guide show you some of Sydney's earliest buildings, shops, old and new, homes of the "well-to-do" and the quaint cottages of the working class. Still to be seen are the pubs and hotels, once frequented by the locals and sailors alike, and the haunts of larrikins and rogues. The many historic streets, narrow alleyways, cobbled lanes, sandstone steps, and beautiful churches combine to weave a rich tapestry of life in the past and present times.

Duration1 Hour

Morning Sydney City Tour with Opera House

Sydney - set on the beautiful blue Sydney Harbour, this fast paced city of cosmopolitan character is one of the world's most beautiful places. Colonial history, stunning architecture, superb waterways, gracious harbourside suburbs and friendly people epitomise the vibrancy of this spectacular city. Some highlights of your morning tour include a guided historic 'Sydney Rock' walking tour and a guided tour of Australia's most famous building - the Sydney Opera House.

Duration6 Hours
Day 3

Sydney to Blue Mountains

Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel as you commence your small group tour into the heart of the unique Blue Mountains World Heritage Region. The Blue Mountains National Park is one of seven national parks that make up the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. This wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests boasts luxury retreats and the world's steepest railway. Today your guide will take you off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.

Your first stop this morning is at Featherdale Wildlife Park where you arrive before any other tourists to meet the native Australian animals here - guests can actually get up close and personal, stroke a koala and hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus...a great experience.

Departing from Featherdale commence your drive to the Blue Mountains via the highway. Travel through the picturesque village of Wentworth Falls, home to a good collection of Victorian and other historic buildings and onto the Wentworth Falls Lookout. With spectacular views over the Jamison Valley and the magnificent waterfall for which it is named, this beautiful lookout is your first stop. Here enjoy a leisurely 30 minute round trip walk to see the Waterfalls. Continuing on you arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural attraction you can't help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colours. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and time available for you to take some great photos.

From here, you are taken to your accommodation to check in. The remainder of the day at is free at leisure to relax and explore. (Lunch own cost today).
