Travel with your guide off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region. The first stop this morning is at Euroka Clearing located deep in the National Park. There is abundant birdlife to be found here, and it's also home to wild kangaroos. Then commence the drive to the Blue Mountains, travelling through the picturesque village of Wentworth Falls, home to a good collection of Victorian and other historic buildings and onto the Wentworth Falls Lookout for spectacular views over the Jamison Valley and the magnificent waterfall for which it is named. Continuing on, arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote point away from the crowds for views of the famous Three Sisters.
