Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves Day Tour

On this day tour from Sydney you will journey to the Blue Mountains to enjoy mountain top vistas and rare underground worlds. Home to over 400 different animals living in the beautiful trees, rainforests, and swamps, the Blue Mountains are a truly unique ecosystem all their own.

Set out towards the Blue Mountains, and travel through the mountain villages of Blaxland, Wentworth Falls, and Lawson. See Katoomba, the resort capital of the Blue Mountains, and enjoy views over stunning eucalypt forest and age-old rock formations. While you're in the Blue Mountains, see the sights of Leura, which comes from the Aboriginal word meaning "lava." There you can see the Three Sisters, a rock formation that stands 900 meters high. Legend says that the three sisters fell in love with three men from a nearby tribe. However, they could not get married, as tribal law forbade it. The brothers, unhappy with the law, decided to capture the sisters. After a major battle, the sisters were transformed into stone. Throughout the tour, your knowledgeable tour guide will share fantastic Aboriginal folklore like this to give you some insight into the land and the culture of the Blue Mountains.

Your next stop is underground in the Jenolan Caves, through the impressive Grand Arch. As one of Australia's most famous limestone caves, it is a must-see attraction for those traveling to Sydney. Enter Jenolan Caves via the impressive Grand Arch and enjoy a guided tour of the Lucas Cave and learn all about the unique formations and historical significance of Australia's largest limestone caves. Over 40 kilometers long, the cave network is an expansive subterranean world that is both beautiful and strange.

Before heading back, you will also visit the enchanting Blue Lake and the beautiful Caves Guesthouse, which was a popular retreat for the rich and famous in the 1920's. And to finish your day, there is a chance you will get to see wild kangaroos and wallabies up close! In this full day tour, the lush Blue Mountains and extensive, well-lit cave network will open your eyes to the rare natural beauty of Sydney's countryside.
