Why do we love this
We love the small size of this tour - that means more hidden spots and access to stunning areas the big tour buses can't go! We also think the fact you get to see so many major NSW highlights is pretty cool.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This is the best overnight tour if you want to see all the major highlights NSW has to offer! You'll hit Port Stephens, the Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley, and get to try some awesome activities along the way.
Leave Sydney early and enjoy incredible views of Darling Harbour and the Sydney Opera House as you cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Your destination today is Nelson Bay in Port Stephens, a quaint coastal town that's full of character. Here you'll have the chance to try out sandboarding or experience a dolphin cruise (own expense). Or, if you just want to relax, hit the beach and take a dip in the pristine waters of Nelson Bay. For those wanting to stretch their legs after the drive, breathtaking ocean views from the local lighthouse are only a short hike away.
After enjoying lunch, head to the famous Hunter Valley for some delicious local tastings. Try vodka, schnapps, and liqueur and then some free chocolate samples. Yum!
Next, head off the beaten track to a secret location with some seriously stunning views. The small size of this tour means you'll hit some secret spots along the way and avoid the big crowds at the same time.
After snapping some photos and enjoying the view, head to your accommodation for the night.
You'll be staying a cosy hostel that's surrounded by vineyards and stunning countryside.
That night, head to a local brewhouse for a meal and drink with your fellow travellers.
It's another early start today as you hit the road on the way to the Great Dividing Range. The 3rd longest mountain range in the world, you'll cross over the top and experience some incredible views as you go. Keep your eyes open for wild kangaroos and other wildlife!
Your next stop is the iconic Jamison Valley lookout. Here you have the chance to embark on several short bushwalks to really immerse yourself in the wild scenery. Marvel at waterfalls rolling over the sandstone escarpments and enjoy exploring the Australian bush.
Later, it's back on the road as you head to the must-see Three Sisters. This is the most famous landmark in the Blue Mountains and great photographs are guaranteed. Enjoy some short walks with some terrific vantage points and learn about the history and culture of the local aboriginal people of Australia. You'll also get to hear about the native flora and fauna of the area as you explore.
Afterwards, it's time to hit the road back to Sydney. You'll arrive back at approximately 6 pm, just in time to explore the city and enjoy a yummy meal.
