Blue Mountains Tours From Sydney

Our mate Sally Bray who operates Aussie Farmstays run these Blue Mountains tours from Sydney:

Four Day Venture West Tour

This is an all Australian adventure ecotour with something for everyone, discovering the nature, culture and history of rural New South Wales. There’s the opportunity to touch and feed Australian native animals, koalas and kangaroos. You can sample local wine and food, visit historic villages and museums,  explore underground limestone caves, and enjoy the attractions of the Blue Mountains.

Optional horse riding in the Blue Mountains provides a unique opportunity to experience its natural beauty or can be substituted with a bushwalk.

Accommodation on tour includes holiday cabins in the Blue Mountains and an historic country pub in Mudgee and most enjoyed is a farmstay camp where you will be treated to the hospitality of the local farmers.

Two Day Jenolan Caves Tour

There’s more at Jenolan Caves than can possibly be appreciated on a day tour, and this two day trip allows for an extended visit. As well as visiting a wildlife park and completing at least one guided cave tour, visitors can complete the self guided tour of the Devil’s Coachhouse and area, explore the scenery around the caves or buy more guided caves tours.

Spend the night in historic Caves  House and take a morning stroll around the area. Then visitors spend the rest of the second day enjoying Blue Mountains attractions including an optional horse ride.

Two Day Happy Farm Tour

Designed especially for visitors from China this tour is accompanied by a Mandarin guide as well as a local guide. It starts with a visit to a wildlife park the meet the koalas and kangaroos and visits the beautiful Mount Tomah Botanic Gardens in the Blue Mountains.  Continuing over the Mountains to Bathurst a traditional mixed farm is the night’s accommodation and entertainment.

Barcoo’s Barn in Bathurst has sheep, cattle, chickens, dogs, horses and everything you expect on a farm!  In the morning visitors can collect the eggs, maybe feed the lambs before heading back to the Blue Mountains to explore the attractions.

Blue Mountains Day Tours

Spend the day on a personalised guided discovery of the Blue Mountains and all it has to offer.  Tours can include any parts of the Blue Mountains that visitors choose, but favourites include visiting a wildlife park, riding the world’s steepest railway into the Jamison Valley at Scenic World and discovering Aboriginal dance, music and culture at the Waradah Centre.

The opportunity for appreciating natural scenic wonders is unlimited in the Blue Mountains, there are many lookouts, waterfalls and iconic rock formations in the valleys which are outstanding and world renowned. Visitors can choose to go horse riding or bush walking in this natural beauty.

Q. What’s the best way to get to the Blue Mountains from the Hunter Valley?

The stumbling block is the Wollemi National Park, which sits like a giant green slime between the two regions. From Singleton take the (very pretty) Putty Road which skirts the world heritage Wollemi National Park to Windsor which is at the doorstep of the Blue Mountains.

Hunter Valley Ballooning

The Hunter Valley cannot rival the Swiss Alps or the Himalayas for extremely spectacular views, however there are many rolling images which delight the eye and soul. One of the best ways to see the Hunter Valley is not necessarily through wine-drenched eyes, but from a birds’ eye vantage point – drifting up with the wind currents in a hot air balloon.

Those with a fear of heights can rest assured that the safety record of Hunter Valley hot air balloons is second to none. A champagne breakfast in a hot air balloon is the ultimate heart-starter, watching the sunrise from half a kilometre up is a memory to savour for a lifetime. Spotting kangaroos in winery grounds on the way up or down surrenders to a landscape-expanding perspective – you can see it all!

The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is part of a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft. On November 21, 1783, in Annonay, France, the first untethered human-carrying flight was performed by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d’Arlandes in a hot air balloon created on December 14, 1782 by the Montgolfier brothers. Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than just being pushed along by the wind are known as airships or, more specifically, thermal airships.

For most of us, the prospect of a champagne breakfast casts visions of a hangover arriving by noon. But rising above the landscape, breathing deep that rarified air, while sensibly drinking sparkling mineral water in equal quantities to champagne, will see you through the afternoon in a deep state of elevated satisfaction rather than a cloudy afternoon of temple ache.
