This awesome tour provides you with a true nature adventure as you explore the incredibly diverse flora and unique fauna of Australia.
Meeting your guide at the pier, you'll climb aboard your 4x4 vehicle and begin the day with a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park, where you will get to see Australia's wildlife in a natural bush setting. At this wonderful park, you'll enjoy a unique wildlife experience which includes the possibility of hand-feeding a kangaroo, wallaby or emu - or a delightful face-to-face encounter with one of the friendly koalas. The park houses one of Australia's largest private collections of indigenous native animals and bird life and your visit here is sure to be a memorable one.
From Featherdale, you will next follow the trail of Australia's early pioneers as you climb into the Blue Mountains, Australia's famous wilderness area. As you ascend along some breathtaking tracks and navigate through dramatic canyons, you'll be introduced to the exciting history of the Blue Mountains; visit its capital, Katoomba; the National Trust Township of Leura; and other historic villages and townships situated along your route. An added bonus is the spectacular panoramic views of the Jamieson Valley, Katoomba Falls and the Megalong Valley.
A relaxing lunch stop is scheduled at Mt. Tomah Botanical Gardens (or similar) before beginning the afternoon segment of your excursion, which includes a visit to the famous Echo Point lookout. From this advantageous location you can view the legendary Three Sisters Rock Formation. Reluctantly, it comes time for you leave the National Park and head back to Sydney. Your return journey has you passing by the site of the 2000 Olympics before returning to the pier.
