WILDERNESS SAFARI IN THE GREATER BLUE MOUNTAINS

Akubrahat3

Een nationaal park dat op de werelderfgoedlijst staat, komt het best tot zijn recht in onze Blue Mountain overnachtingssafari, met voldoende ruimte en tijd om de adembenemende Great Blue Mountains, de Central Tablelands en de Great Dividing Ranges van NSW te verkennen.

Met diepe kloven en steile kliffen bieden de Blue Mountains, die op de UNESCO-lijst staan, enkele van de mooiste wildernissen van Australië – maar ze zijn ook populair bij de toeristen van Sydney.

Dus laten we de drukte vermijden en dieper gaan – diep in de Kanangra Boyd Wildernis. Ervaar het beste van de Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area met verborgen ravijnen en dichte bossen, en spot inheemse wilde dieren in hun natuurlijke habitat.

Op deze safari met kleine groep en overnachting in de wildernis van de Greater Blue Mountains krijgt u persoonlijke aandacht en veel tijd om te verkennen.

Met een deskundige gids die de navigatie verzorgt en commentaar geeft, kunt u zich concentreren op het landschap en de ervaring. Bekijk wilde dieren zoals vogelbekdieren, moeraswallaby’s, wombats en grijze kangaroes. Bezoek lokale watervallen, blauwe gombomen bossen en steile canyons, en stop onderweg in kleine plattelandsstadjes.

Deze expeditie met veel overnachtingen kan tijdrovend zijn om zelf te plannen, maar deze rondleiding zorgt voor alle details.

HOOGTEPUNTEN VANDAAG
  • Enjoy valley walks to experience the heart of the Blue Mountains from the inside.
  • Discover remote waterfalls, magnificent canyons, ancient ridges, and ferny rainforests.

TODAY’S ITINERARY

Starting no later than 7.30 am to avoid the traffic, we’re straight off to Australia’s own Grand Canyon for a eventful day packed with close wildlife encounters, spectacular vistas and explorative walks. On route we’ll cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge before enjoying morning tea with wild kangaroos deep in the Australian bush. See kangaroos up close plus friendly parrots and cockatoos.

On our circuit hike (app. 1-2 hours, pending on guests’ agility and the weather) along the Jamison Valley today we’ll discover waterfalls, magnificent canyons, eucalyptus and rainforests and an abundance of local birds. De ware schoonheid van de Jamison spreekt voor zich bij de beroemde Three Sisters.

Na een Aussie-picknick in onze geheime schuilplaats (ver van elke toeristenkantine), dalen we halverwege af in de afgelegen Grose Valley voor spectaculaire en onderbroken vergezichten over Mount Banks, de Bridal Veil Falls en Pulpit Rock.

In the afternoon, we drive up the Great Dividing Range and into the Central Tablelands to enjoy the solitude and beauty of country NSW, before arriving at Jenolan, home of one of the world’s most spectacular limestone cave formations of the Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve.

Having settled into our room of the charming, heritage listed Jenolan Caves House, it is time of another highlight: a walk around the fairy-like Blue Lake for a realistic chance to see the resident platypus in the wild!

An evening (or morning walk the next day) in de hidden, unknown McKeown’s valley brings us close to the endangered Brush-Tailed Rockwallaby!

Dinner at the Jenolan Caves House (at own expense).

Accommodation: Jenolan Caves House

HOOGTEPUNTEN VANDAAG
  • A brisk morning walk to spot a platypus, a brush-tailed rock-wallaby or a wombat.
  • Off-road drive to the remote Kanangra Plateau, part of the 5% remaining true wilderness in NSW. Spot herds of eastern grey kangaroos and plenty of pretty-faced & swamp wallabies (true name) on the way.
  • The 2 hour walk on Kanangra Plateau. offering spectaculair views over large parts of the Greater Blue Mountains Worlds Heritage Area.
  • The views & ultimate photo opportunities at Kanangra Wall and the blue eucalyptus forest of Kanangra Deep. If ever you wondered were the name “Blue Mountains” comes from – this is it!
  • Lunch in the old postoffice of the quaint explorers’ hamlet of Hartley, with a visit to the local Aboriginal gallery.
  • Scenic drive through the magnificent Hartley Vale Valley with a good chance to spot eastern rosella’s, more kangaroos, an emu or a wedge-tailed eagle.
  • Visit of the Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens, the only botanical gardens in the world to be integrated in a world heritage area. Good area to spot an eastern spine-bill, a satin bowerbird, Australian king parrots or a bassian trush.
TODAY’S ITINERARY

After a hearty breakfast at our hotel (included), we’re straight off to yet another national park within the Great Blue Mountains World Heritage Area: the Kanangra Walls, of the Kanangra-Boyd National Park.

An easy but refreshing walk along the valley ridge seamed with silver banksia, bright red mountain devils and white flowering hakeas offers unparalleled views across one of Australia’s most spectacular landscapes with its waterfalls, exposed spikes of ancient rocks and misty mountains.

In the depths of the gorge, spot an Australian red cedar or the gorgeous flame robin. Or look up to see some soaring wedge-tail eagles.

On the way back through the Australian woodlands of the Great Divide, we experience yet another highlight of the tour: a close encounter with wombats in the wild! As most marsupials, these close relatives of the koala are active mostly early in the mornings or late at night, when they leave their undergrounds burrows to graze. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see this beautiful animal in its own habitat!

After our lunch at the historic Hartley village, we make our way via the scenic Bell’s Line of Road to a remote lookout on the green slopes of Mount Banks, one of the highest points of the Blue Mountains National Park on the northern ridges of the Grose Valley.

A short drive later we find ourselves amount the flowering grass trees, giant ash gums and enigmatic Wollemi pines of the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens of Mt Tomah. Look out for the clever satin bowerbird!

Return to your hotel at ca. 5 PM, packed with memories that will last a lifetime.

Greater Blue Mountains Wilderness Safari 4

One of my favourite moments of the Greater Blue Mountains Wilderness Safari happens on the patio of Jenolan Cave House, just after 5 pm, when all the day-tourists are gone and we – my guests and I – can enjoy an intense peacefulness not found in anywhere in the city. Only interrupted by a wallaby, a superb lyrebird or a friendly waiter bringing our well deserved beer !

Carlos Demnati, Tour Guide

On our walk through the McKeown Valley we had an encounter with a rare Brush Tail Rock Wallaby!

BEOORDELINGEN

Amazing 2 days in the Blue Mountains. Jelle of Dingo tours was a fantastic guide bursting with knowledge and took us to the most wonderful places without crowds. We stopped by wild wallabies and kangaroos and lots of birds. Platypus spotting was my personal highlight. Despite the awful weather on day 2 we still managed some short walks in beautiful spots. Would recommend this trip rather than the typical one day trip. Can’t thank Jelle enough for s superb two days.
Auf einem zweitägigen Ausflug in die Blue Mountains mit Jelle.
Unsere Gruppe bestand aus fünf Personen. Zwei von uns und ein Brite mit zwei Kindern. Eine nette Gruppe.
Jelle weiß, wie man all die schönen Orte in den Blue Mountains findet, was nach 20 Jahren als Reiseführer nur logisch ist. Von den beliebten Orten wo viele Touristen kommen (obwohl Jelle versucht, diese so weit wie möglich zu meiden), bis hin zu den sehr ruhigen Orten. Danke Jelle für die schöne Fahrt, die lustigen Geschichten und die gute Organisation.

Our party consisted of five people. Two of us and a Briton with two children. A nice group. Jelle knows how to find all the beautiful spots in the Blue Mountains, which is logical after 20 years as a guide. From the popular spots (although Jelle tries to avoid them as much as possible) where many tourists come, to the super-quiet spots. (…) The rest of the day is a succession of beautiful views, small walks. (…) We ended the day in the heart of the Blue Mountains at the Jenolan Caves Hotel. We visit the caves and enjoy a good dinner and a well-earned night’s sleep. Before breakfast, we spot platypuses in Blue Lake and then start the journey back. A few more stops along the way, a beautiful canyon walk and a visit to the botanical garden round off a wonderful two days. Thanks Jelle for the beautiful ride, the funny stories and the good organisation.
