Our trip to the Blue mountains started off with the morning being very foggy. Our first stop was at Featherdale Wildlife Park. We were to have breakfast with the koalas, but that had been canceled. In place of that they gave us a 25 photo opportunity with a koala, which I would rather of had. The park was great. Then we headed into the mountains but was so foggy we couldn't see anything. Our guide Lindsey was great. He took us to great place for lunch, the sun had come out and the views were spectacular. After lunch he took us on the other side of mountains where we had some champagne and some more beautiful views. Was a good day. I would definitely recommend this trip
Guide was very good, and shared lots of interesting information - although we later learned of factual errors in some of what he said. But a small quibble... Trip was beautiful, and we really enjoyed the Featherdale Wildlife Park. We arrived right at opening, which made for a great experience. A lot fitted into the day, which was great. If possible, however, we really recommend spending a night in the mountains. One couple in our group took the day trip up one day and another day trip back the second day. They raved about what they'd seen, and we wished we'd been able to do this. But for a compact look at the area, we HIGHLY recommend.
Great tour! We had the breakfast option at Featherdale Wildlife Park and it was completely enchanting to spend time with Archer the koala bear in a private setting. It was the highlight of our entire Sydney trip! Just wish we had even more time to tour all of this wonderful park! The Blue Mountains were lovely. We had a very nice lunch at the Hydro Majestic but wished we had a little more time to tour this historic hotel. Loved the botanical park and the tour guide took us in the country to see local wildlife where we spotted kangaroos! It was a great all day tour and everything was so wonderful to see, we only wish we had more time at each place, but then we would have been gone until midnight!
For me the highlight of this tour was a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Feed wallabys, enjoyed the Kangaroos and other animals native to Australia. The view from Eaglehawk of the 3 Sisters is awe inspiring. Drove around other scenic lookouts in the Blue Mountains and had a very pleasant day.
