This wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests boasts luxury retreats and striking views, and today’s small group adventure will take you off the beaten track to visit several remote lookouts while detailing the history, flora and fauna of this impressive region. Departing from the city, travel to the Blue Mountains and make your first stop of the day at Euroka Clearing. Here, a range of birdlife as well as wild kangaroos are often spotted, so be sure to keep on the lookout as you explore the area and while your guide prepares a refreshing morning tea or coffee. From Euroka Clearing, ascend further into the Blue Mountains park system, stopping to take in the views from one of the fantastic outlooks over the Jamison Valley, then carry onward to Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote point removed from the crowds to appreciate the famous Three Sisters. Snap a few keepsake photos while your guide discusses the legends behind this famous rock formation, and then head toward the village of Blackheath to enjoy an included two-course lunch at Hydro Majestic (drinks not included). Following lunch, visit Govetts Leap, one of the most famous lookouts in Australia; here, a magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 590 feet from the base of a cliff down to the valley below. Next you’ll travel to the western boundary of the park and descend down into Hartley Vale to learn the history of this picturesque farmland valley that is also home to kangaroos, emus and a number of endemic bird species.

    Kensington Tours did a great job in setting up our itinerary for a trip to Australia. We were wowed by the Alamanda Resort hotel in Palm Cove, Queensland.

  • Juliet G — November 07, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Colin Rowe was fabulous. He showed real concern for our comfort and was always there to answer our questions. He is very knowledgeable and a real asset to your organization. We would ask for him by name if we travel again. The meals were delightful, and the tour guides were not only well versed in the culture and surroundings, but offered delightful personal stories during the ride that enhanced our trip. Our accommodations were excellent - both the Four Points Sheraton in Perth and the Radisson Blu in Sydney were first class. Clean and very comfortable. Overall, a wonderful trip!

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