Day 1: 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. 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 Featherdale Wildlife Park where you arrive before any other tourists to meet the native Australian animals here and get up close and personal - stroke a koala and hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus. 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.
Day 2: Start you day with breakfast, then enjoy the morning at leisure. Early afternoon you will head to the village of Blackheath and your lunch venue. Here in this relaxed, friendly club enjoy a 2 course lunch at the Hydro Majestic Hotel. Following lunch, the afternoon is spent visiting a selection of lookouts. Visit Govetts Leap, one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. Enjoy the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose Wilderness. The last stop is at the Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens where you stop to enjoy the sweeping views across to Sydney over a glass of sparkling wine before travelling down the Bells Line of Road to arrive back in Sydney.
