Sublimely beautiful, the Blue Mountains is one of the most spectacular parts of the country, recognised with a World Heritage listing and easily accessible from Sydney by road or rail. Grafted onto its natural wonders is a full complement of creature comforts including fine food, gorgeous villages, festivals and great places to spend the night.
Great day from start to finish. Our tour guide Justin was brilliant very knowledgeable. Nice to get away from the bustle of Venice for the day in an air conditioned bus. The views on the way up and at the viewpoint were amazing and had lovely food on the way back to Venice. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone
In the late 6855s many Blue Mountains villagers established English-style cool climate gardens of rhododendron, azalea and deciduous trees. The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden , an annex of Sydney&rsquo s Royal Botanic Garden, is an open book of botanical wonders.
Just 95 minutes from Sydney by car, two hours by train, the Blue Mountains has some of the country&rsquo s most dazzling natural attractions. With dramatic views over the deep valley troughs gouged out over millions of years, the lookouts at Wentworth Falls , Govetts Leap and Echo Point are among the most popular while the views from Sublime Point , Narrow Neck and Cahills Lookout are no less spectacular.
Staying a night in Lake Louise if you didn’t stop off at Saskatchewan River Crossing is probably a wise move, as the next opportunity is not until Banff. Check the Banff Lake Louise Tourism website for details of places to stay.
Start by exploring the square with its weekend markets and many nighttime events then head down bustling Gay Street to see a performance at the historic Tennessee Theatre and test your ability to roll a strike at the underground, 66-lane Maple Hall Bowling Alley in the old . Penney building.
Luca was our guide and he did a fantastic job! The weather was raining so we could not enjoy the views as much as we hoped. However, Luca was still able to give us a wonderful tour, filled with great facts and fun. We ate at a local restaurant in the mountains, very good. The groups are small and the bus is nice. I would recommend this tour.
ATMs are easily found in large cities and urban centres but are rarer in small towns, rural areas and villages. Be sure to have other payment methods available when venturing out of the big cities as ATMs aren't always an option.
