The Blue Mountains Small Group Insider Tour
One day deep in the world heritage eucalyptus park to get close to wildlife and waterfalls
THE BLUE MOUNTAINS SMALL GROUP TOUR
Enjoy this Blue Mountains small group tour from Sydney with a maximum of 10 guests as you discover magnificent valleys, rivers and gorges of the World-Heritage listed National Park, that is the Blue Mountains.
Experience the true beauty of the Blue Mountains off the beaten track as you immerse yourself in the spectacular wilderness areas of such a unique region in an area that you can’t appreciate without getting your shoes dirty (so to speak).
Starting no later than 7:30 am to avoid the traffic, you’ll head straight off towards Australia’s own Grand Canyon for an eventful day packed with close encounters, vistas and walks.
The drive to the foothills of the Blue Mountains only takes about 1.15 hours, as – unlike most operators – we take all toll roads to avoid the morning traffic. On the way, we happily include a 1 hour visit to the popular Featherdale Wildlife Park. This petting zoo offers the chance to see most of Australia’s iconic animals up close: Wombats, kangaroos, emus, goannas, wallabies, koalas and even a crocodile. There are also many birds, snakes and lizards to see.
The real adventure starts as soon as we take the scenic Blue Mountains Drive that takes us to Wentworth Falls. From there we’ll go on a 1.5 hour circuit walk in the majestic Jamison Valley. Further stops along the valley allow us to take in the breathtaking views of the Three Sisters, Narrow Neck and the Megalong Valley.
Then it’s time to make our way to the rugged, much less visited Gross Valley. We enjoy a bush picnic at our favourite hideaway before heading into the valley, known to locals as Australia’s Grand Canyon. You’ll be amazed. Money-back guarantee!
Continue over the Blue Mountains along the Darling Causeway to the stunning Mt Tomah Botanic Garden – the only garden in the world to be part of a World Heritage National Park. The flowering grass trees, mountain devils, eucalyptus trees and acacias attract a variety of honeyeaters, rosellas and other Australian birds, which we can observe amazingly well.
Afterwards, we drive back to town on the scenic Bell’s Line of Road and are dropped off at your hotel at approximately 5 PM. 5 PM.
“The yellow-brown maple leaves autumn near Blacktown, the thunderous Wentworth Falls after a summer downpour , the crispy clear blue skies in winter or the sticky red Mountain Devils and wattle – no two Blue Mountains tours are the same. I have the best job in the world!”

Featherdale Wildlife Park
Popular with many tour groups in the Blue Mountains is a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. This petting zoo offers the chance to see most of Australia’s iconic animals up close: Wombats, kangaroos, emus, goannas, wallabies, koalas and even a crocodile. There are also many birds, snakes and lizards to see. Although our day trips to the Blue Mountains have a good success rate of seeing a kangaroo in the wild, as well as a variety of honeyeaters and parrots, this cannot be guaranteed. So if your visit to Australia is limited in space and time, we can recommend a visit to Featherdale. This visit can easily be integrated into our Blue Mountains Tour. Just let us know during the booking process.
