WHAT TO EXPECT
This Blue Mountains tour from Sydney with Barefoot Downunder will take you into the heart of the Blue Mountains, there you'll discover some incredible sights including the Empress & Wentworth Waterfalls and majestic 'Three Sisters'.
Your Blue Mountains Adventure & Hike Tour will pick you up from one of four locations across Sydney, Bondi Beach 6:45 am, Kings Cross 7:00 am, Circular Quay 7:15 am or Sydney Central 7:30 am. From there, you will make the approx. 2 hr journey to the Blue Mountains – spotting wild kangaroos along the way!
You'll begin your adventure with a 2.5-3 hour guided hike down to Wentworth Falls including stops at Empress Falls and Valley of the Waters. Soak up incredible views of Jamison Valley and spot native wildlife. This hike can be quite steep in parts so requires a medium level of fitness*.
After that big ol' hike, it's time to relax in the small village of Leura, here you can stop for lunch (lunch is not included). Take your pick from the local restaurants on offer – maybe even try a kangaroo burger?! Or pack a picnic and enjoy it in the nearby park.
The Three Sisters
Next it's time to head out to the famous Three Sisters rock formation, for that all important selfie #threesisters. On the way listen to Dreamtime stories from your guide and have your camera ready for the Katoomba Street Art Walk.
Saving the best for last, our final lookout spot Lincoln's Rock, here you can 'sit on the edge of the world' and take in panoramic views of the Blue Mountains.
After an adventurous day on your Blue Mountains Tour, it's time to sit back & relax as we get the tunes pumping on the bus and drive back to Sydney Central for our one drop off.
You must have a medium level of fitness. This tour is suited to ages 18-49 years, minimum age is 15 years old.
