Discover the Blue Mountains

Travel west of Sydney by motorcoach towards the Blue Mountains. Despite its name, this UNESCO World Heritage Site isn’t mountainous at all. In fact, it’s an area of scenic, rugged, low-elevation tablelands covering more than 2.5 million acres. Some wonderful cultural and landscape surprises await you. Visit Featherdale Wildlife Park for an introduction to the amazing spectrum of Australian wildlife. Just a few feet away froom you – and in some cases roaming quite freely within the park – are wallabies, kangaroos, koalas, reptiles, Tasmanian devils, wombats and many Australian species of bird. Photo opportunities abound, and you cn pay extra to h ave your photo taken with a koala. At the Blue Mountains, you’ll realize that the attraction here is not what rises above, but rather what lies beneath. A stop at the Echo Point viewpoint shows what the ‘mountains’ are all about – they are canyons deeply incised through the tablelands, with some intriguing landforms carved by wind and water. You will have a very impressive view of the Three Sisters – eroded columns whose existence has given rise to a wealth of Aboriginal lore. Take in panoramic views of the Jamieson Valley, Mount Solitary and the Ruined Castle as well. At Scenic World take a ride on the Scenic Cableway, Australia’s steepest aerial cable car, crossing high above the Jamison Valley. Enjoy the views of ancient ravines and dazzling waterfalls while suspended 886 feet above. A two-course traditional lunch is served at the Mountain Heritage Hotel. Boasting unrivalled views over the Blue Mountains, this quaint property lends an old-world, English-style ambience to your lunch experience. Reflect on your day’s sightseeing as you return to the ship.
