Featured guest review:
‘We were picked up from our hotel in a 4WD Pathfinder, before heading out to the Blue Mountains. Our tour comprised of hikes through the gorgeous landscape, lots of excellent commentary, stops at scenic viewpoints, and a lovely picnic lunch. We did not encounter the masses of tour buses, and got a great view of the Three Sisters from a vantage point with no crowds. I would highly recommend seeing the Blue Mountains this way.’ Scubalo

What you can expect
For those who want to get off the beaten tourist track in the Blue Mountains National Park, this Private Blue Mountains Day Tour by 4WD from Sydney is a fabulous option. Not only will you travel exclusively with your own small group (up to six guests), but you’ll get to see areas that the bulk of tourists don’t see. The Blue Mountains is full of fabulous walking trails, small lookouts, babbling streams and shimmering waterfalls, and your guide will escort you to many of the hidden highlights. This is not an off-road tour, but it will take you on the road less travelled!
Following pick-up at your Sydney CBD hotel, you’ll head west in a comfortable 4WD SUV towards the Blue Mountains. The drive takes about 90 minutes, and your guide will highlight places and points of interest along the way. [More]
Once in the mountains, you’ll do a series of stops for short bushwalks — each around 20 minutes in length. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the incredible Australian bush, and breathe in that mountain air tinged with eucalyptus (which creates the blue haze that the mountains are named after). You’ll see gaping canyons, vast valleys, sheer cliffs and plunging escarpments. The Blue Mountains’ waterfalls are always a highlight. As you take it all in, your passionate guide will impart a wealth of information about the native flora and fauna you encounter, and the geological history of this ancient landscape.
It won’t take you long to work up an appetite, and lunch on this Blue Mountains Day Tour by 4WD is another highlight. You’ll enjoy gourmet food platters served in the great outdoors, complete with crisp white linen. Graze on local specialities as you gaze over another awe-inspiring canyon.
While you’ll spend much of your day away from the main tourist areas, that doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on seeing the Blue Mountains’ most popular sights — including the famous Three Sisters rock formation at Echo Point in Katoomba. By getting there a little later in the day, you’ll avoid the bulk of the crowds at the key lookouts.
You’ll cover a lot of distance on this Blue Mountains Day Tour by 4WD, but the balance between driving, walking and simply admiring the landscape is absolutely spot on. The aim of the day is to ensure that you get to experience the extraordinary stillness and tranquillity of the Blue Mountains, rather than spending your day dodging buses and selfie sticks.
