Everybody should plan a Blue Mountains private day tours at least once. There’s plenty to see and do, and plenty of day tours to help you pack everything in. There are, however, a few important things you should know before taking your Blue Mountains private day tours. Here are things you need to know before considering have a Blue Mountains private tour.

The Blue Mountains are due west from Sydney and start about 60 kilometers away. The main tourist region of Katoomba and Leura is about 90 kilometers away. They are definitely worth visiting if you have time during your visit!

What to Expect on the Blue Mountains Private Day Tours

The Blue Mountains region is made up of seven separate national parks and is about 10,000 square kilometers in size. It was recognized in the year 2000 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its unique natural diversity. Rather than pointy glacial mountains, you can expect to see rounded peaks with deep valleys and towering cliffs, often with sparkling waterfalls plummeting over them. If you plan for a short tour that can access the less-visited spots, then you may also find yourself enjoying ancient Aboriginal rock carvings and towering cool climate rainforests. You should visit the iconic Three Sisters, which is closest to the township of Katoomba and is one of the most impressive rock formations in Australia. You will also enjoy the crisp mountain air, abundant local birdlife, ornate gardens, and charming local villages like Leura.

The Three Sisters

The Three Sisters is an unusual rock formation in the Blue Mountains, on the north escarpment of the Jamison Valley. No Blue Mountains private day tour would be complete without visiting Echo Point which offers one of the best views of the Three Sisters. The three striking sandstone rock formations proudly rise from the Jamison Valley and are likely the Blue Mountain’s most recognizable site. It is also almost always one of the busiest.

Wentworth Falls

One of the many waterfalls to see at the park, Wentworth Falls, is a popular spot that can be reached from the Wentworth Falls track. The trail goes by Jamison and Wentworth lookouts, before leading you to Fletcher’s Lookout, where you can have an unobstructed view of the falls and their 100m drop into the valley. Wentworth Falls, near where the waterfall is located, is another little town in the Blue Mountains. It’s an optimal spot for relatively easy bush walks that give you impressive lookouts and sweeping views.

Scenic World

Scenic World is one of the best places to visit in the Blue Mountains, as it is here you can enjoy the view from the world’s steepest scenic railway. You can also experience the scenic walkway, cableway, and skyway here, all of which provide different views and experiences of the Blue Mountains. It’s recommended to take in the beauty of the area through hikes and trails, but if you’re more into a novel tourist experience, Scenic World can be a fun way to spend an hour in the park.
