TOUR ITINERARY


Hop off the train at Katoomba Train Station and receive a warm welcome from your driver/guide and set off for your first adventure.

GORDON FALLS (30 Minutes) - Here you'll head down the steps to the Gordon Falls Lookout and enjoy some spectacular views across the Jamison Valley towards the back of the famous Three Sisters, Lake Burragorang, the King's Tableland and Sublime Point. You'll then stroll the clifftop to Elysian Rock and on to Olympian Rock before you hop back on the bus to your next adventure.

HONEYMOON LOOKOUT (40 Minutes Prince Henry Cliff Walk) - This is quite possibly the best short walk anywhere in Australia. You have spectacular cliff top views and there are many wonderful lookouts to pause at along the way. You reach the top of the famous Giant Stairway, but don't panic, you only need to head down the first part of the stairway to reach the Honeymoon Bridge which leads you across onto the Three Sisters. You can pause for some photos whilst standing on the Three Sisters before continuing to Echo Point. This is where we will stop for lunch.

ECHO POINT (45 Minutes Lunch and Lookouts) - If you brought your own picnic lunch, there are picnic tables and grassed areas to settle on, or if you'd prefer something else, there is a café, restaurant and bar here as well. You can also spend some time at the lookouts and relax.

KATOOMBA CASCADES (30 Minutes) - Next it's just a short ride to Katoomba Cascades where you'll take another gorgeous walk. You'll stroll down across the cascading waterfalls with the sound of gently falling water and playful birds as you head to Reid's Plateau. It's here that you'll get a fantastic view across Jamison Valley to the Three Sisters and Mt Solitary. You then continue to Katoomba Falls and your friendly driver/guide will be waiting there in the bus to whisk you around the clifftop edge for some sightseeing and photo opportunities.

NARROW NECK LOOKOUT (10 Minutes photo stop) - This is a fantastic place for photos. There are often kookaburras, lyrebirds, black cockatoos, magpies and currawongs here. The views are awesome. Katoomba Landslide, Mt Solitary, the King's Tableland, Narrow Neck Ridge, Megalong Valley and the Great Dividing Range are all visible from the one spot. Your driver/guide will be happy to take your photo here, they all have a "secret spot" which gives you a wonderful memory to take home.

CAHILL'S LOOKOUT (20 Minutes photo stop and short stroll) - This is a lovely lookout where you can take a short stroll and marvel at the view. It's a superb spot for sunset too.

LEURA VILLAGE (End of tour and free time to explore) - This is where your driver/guide will bid you farewell. You can spend some free time exploring this charming village, bursting with boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. You can hop on the train from here when you're ready. No rush - no rules.


So what are you waiting for? Lace up your boots and explore the Blue Mountains.
