Five Blue Mountains tours that will show you a different view
The Blue Mountains is one of Sydney’s most popular day tour destinations, and with good reason.
The Blue Mountains National Park and the towns across the range offer a wealth of experiences. Echo Point with its stunning valley vistas, the iconic Three Sisters rock formations, endless bushwalking options and the picturesque towns of Leura and Wentworth Falls are just some of the highlights.
Here are five top Blue Mountains tours from Sydney, each of which will show you a different side of this world-renowned natural landscape.

These scenic full-day Blue Mountains tours give it a good go. You’ll visit fabulous Featherdale Wildlife Park and Scenic World. Your tickets to ride the Scenic Railway, Skyway and Cableway are included in the cost of the tour. This is a great all-round introduction to the region.
Blue Mountains by 4WD Tour
