About Blue Mountains In A Day:Private Day Trip From Sydney

Book Direct with the Owner at Blue Mountains In A Day:Private Day Trip From Sydney with Accommodation Yamba in Sydney, for all your Attraction and travel needs.

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Sydney CBD at 7.30am. It’s approximately 2-hours to the main sightseeing area in the Blue Mountains and there is often a stop made about halfway in a small village for a coffee break (at own expense).

The first viewpoint stop is in the Wentworth Falls area, where you will see the expansive valleys the Blue Mountains region is known for. From here, it’s a short drive to the Katoomba area, where many of the most well-known viewpoints are located. You have the option to visit Scenic World – with activities including cable cars, a steep train ride into the valley and a boardwalk through a section of rainforest (entrance fee additional - AU$35 per adult). Alternatively, you can take a longer walk along the cliff-top, which offers scenic views and passes Katoomba Falls and Cascades (walking time approx. 45-minutes, medium grade).

After Scenic World or the cliff-top walk, arrive at Echo Point, the most well-known vantage point for views of the famous Three Sisters rock formation. Hear the Aboriginal Dreaming story of their creation and take in the sweeping panorama of the Jamison Valley.

Lunch (at own expense) is in the picturesque neighboring village of Leura, which has a good range of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. Most food requirements can be catered for. Your guide will suggest a suitable venue based on your preferences and make a reservation if required.

After lunch, head down to the western suburbs of Sydney for a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park (entrance fee applies - AU$28 per adult). The park’s focus is on Aussie animals. You can get a photo with a koala (at additional cost), feed a kangaroo and discover the unique nature of Australian fauna. 

From here, travel back to the city center. Return to Sydney CBD by road with hotel drop-off or by public ferry along the Parramatta River and Sydney Harbour (ticket price not included, AU$8.90 per adult) and make your own way back from the ferry terminal to your hotel. Return time is approximately 5pm.

      Glen suggested an early start to the day which proved to be very good since we were the first ones to arrive at the Featherdale Wildlife Park where we spent 90 minutes. He was an excellent driver and gave very good commentary on our trip to the Blue Mountains, stopping at spectacular lookouts where often we were the only ones there. Glen also stopped at a "secret place" in Leura for us to have lunch, again avoiding the crowds. If you want a private tour of the Blue Mountains we would highly recommend using Glen's tour service.

      We had a great day with Glenn. I loved having the flexibility to modify our plans as the day went by. Glenn is very knowledgeable and patiently answered all of my questions (and as a first time visitor to Australia there were a lot of them).

      As active walkers, we planned an appropriate day. It started at the Featherdale Wildlife Park where we spent an hour in close proximity to a wide selection of indigenous wildlife. Not on my original plan but not to be missed if you have an interest in birds and animals. We then spent the morning at a cloudy Wentworth Falls. After a hillside tramp we plunged down into the canyon for a great view from below. Note steep steps with a lung-busting climb back up. After lunch in Leura, we visited the area around the Three Sisters, again with hillside walks taking in great views. The finale was a trip down the Paramatta River to Circular Quay that even a spot of rain couldn’t spoil. To summarise, the day was superbly planned by Glenn who took into account our requests and delivered an in-depth knowledge of the wildlife, geology, geography and history of the area whilst taking us to the best viewpoints. What a great day - thanks.

      We took this tour a few months ago and had a fantastic day. We got to see the Blue Mountains from several great viewing spots and then had lunch at a great little cafe in Leura. It was the perfect last outing for our trip down under!

      Me and my family went on a blue mountain day trip with country trails . It turned out to be an awesome day. Glen was there at the right time to pick us up from the hotel we were staying. He Is a very down to earth person with very good knowledge of not only the blue mountains but the entire Australia itself . His car was very comfortable for 4 of us . We went to feather dale wildlife park first and then to blue mountains. Glen showed us different scenic spots and we did appreciate the enormity and absolute breathtaking beauty of the blue mountains. On top of that we got a discounted group tickets for Katoomba scenic world and featherdale park as well. Glen has good knowledge about the local restaurants and he took us to a vegetarian friendly restaurant which was nice and served good food. Thank you very much glen for all the help and making our trip very memorable. I highly recommend this guy. Cheers

      Everything went as planned. Glen our guide was there to meet us at the ship and he was a great guide. I believe he provided more than was expected. The Sydney Opera House was great and Glen took us to some of the out of the way places, as well as a great trip to the Blue Mountains the next day. Five stars from the four of us!

      We wanted to see the Blue Mountains and to also see Koalas and other domestic animals and we thought this would be a good trip. Glenn arrived early and on our way to the Blue Mountains, we had an option of doing a short scenic hike or a longer more strenous hike. We chose the longer one of course and it was worth it. Make sure you have proper shoes and able to climb down/up steep steps. The trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park is where we saw Koalas and other animals and we also liked that experience. It definitely was an entire day long drives, but it was well worth it and Glenn made sure we were able to see what we wanted to see.

      Fastest way to see and do a lot in one day! Arrived Blue Mountains early, selected the Scenic World option so we went on the rides. If you don't want to extensively hike the park, the 3 rides cable car, tilted rail ride and tram are the very best way to see the highlights. Lunch in Leura was excellent. The Featherdale wildlife park option is also great if you want to see a lot of Australians animals. We were there at closing and were able to have more than adequate time to pet the koalas. The ferry back to Sydney is an excellent ending to the trip. It's short, smooth and has great views arriving in Sydney. Glenn, our guide, was terrific.
