Day 8: Sydney

The Blue Mountains Canyons and Wildlife Discovery is a real journey into the heart of a unique World Heritage Region. From temperate rainforests to towering sandstone escarpments, you’ll see and experience it all. Let the landscape work its wonders and become part of you for a lifetime. Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel as you commence your small group deluxe tour into the heart of the unique Blue Mountains World Heritage Region. The first stop this morning is at Featherdale Wildlife Park where you arrive before any other tourists, to meet the native Australian animals here – you can actually get up close and personal, stroke a koala and hand feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus. Departing from Featherdale, commence the drive to the Blue Mountains via the highway. After a stop at the Wentworth Lookout, continue and arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural attraction you can’t help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colors. Arrive at your lunch venue - the historic Boiler House Cafe at the stunning Hydro Majestic Property. With spectacular views enjoy a relaxing 2 course cafe style lunch. All diets are catered for (excluding Kosher Meals). Beverages can be purchased at your own expense from the bar. The afternoon is spent visiting a selection of lookouts. Once you clap your eyes on the view from Govetts Leap you’ll know why it’s one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180 meters to the base of the cliff. The last stop is the delightful Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens where you'll stop to enjoy the sweeping views across to Sydney and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or orange juice before travelling down the Bells Line of Road to arrive back at your hotel approximately 4.30 - 5.00 p.m. This small group tour can accommodate up to 17 passengers and departs Sydney between 7.00 and 7.30 a.m.

  • Arthur P — September 08, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    It was all we hoped for and more, fantastic experience.

  • Kathleen H — September 08, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Our Kensington destination expert, Kate Perrier, did an extraordinary job of putting together a custom itinerary for my family. My family and I travelled nearly 11,000 miles to get to Australia and got to see everything we were most interested in thanks to Kate's expert planning!

  • Michael P — August 22, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Everything went like clockwork! Our family absolutely loved our trip which was made possible by the Kensington travel team.

  • Pam Gerus — May 23, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    We've never done tours before and planning for Australia seemed overwhelming until I looked at tour options. Kensington was highly rated. I really liked the basics of the tour we picked and Jessica customized it and changed things around to better fit what we were interested in and the timing we preferred. I liked the multiple, smaller tours as opposed to being with the same group for a week. The tours selected were with great companies, small groups, very informative and fun. Also, I was pretty scrambled after the long flight. Having Lyn Redfern meet us at the airport, talk us through the plans, answer our questions, get us situated at the hotel was really comforting and welcoming. The selected hotels were great. Overall a good experience and I'd definitely consider having Kensington set up future trips.

  • Adeline R — February 07, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Right from working with Jessica on setting our vacation plan to the execution was fantastic.

  • Ken S. — August 10, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    This was a great trip from start to finish. Everything planned was right on schedule without any problems. All the drivers and tour guides were very helpful and friendly. The accommodations were top notch. Thank you Kensington tours for a perfect vacation to Australia.

  • Philip S. — May 19, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    Superb trip, and as mentioned earlier, kudos to Louise Baer for her outstanding work and for patiently putting up with me and all my calls and questions.

  • Edith R. — May 19, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    We had a wonderful experience with Kensington Tours from the planning stages with your very helpful agent Aseem Mahajan, to the very friendly meet and greet services at each airport. The hotels fit our needs perfectly and the tours were fun and interesting with guides that were exuberant and loved showing us Australia. Thank You for a truly grand family experience.

  • Jim M. — May 18, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    Excellent tour.

  • Jennifer A. — May 12, 2016 — Australia & Pacific

    Thank you Kensington Tours and Kevin Rowland for organizing this much needed trip for our family! I had read several positive reviews for Kensington Tours, but I didn't expect the level of service that we received. From beginning to end, the entire process was seamless. Each tour/excursion was led by a knowledgeable, personable and entertaining guide.
