What we'll do

Come on the most intimate and special Blue Mountains experience!

Enjoy a day out in the Blue Mountains beyond the tourist crowds with Peter, a passionate local. This small-group tour takes a maximum of 4 people, so you're assured a top-quality, personal and safe experience. Your day starts with an early pick-up from Strathfield train station. You'll head straight for the Blue Mountains and hike a trail away from the busy tourist hub, passing waterfalls, visiting photogenic and tranquil lookouts, and taking in views from the clifftops. This is one of Peter's favourite places to hike and it's a wilderness area that's listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

You'll also stop by a gallery to see works by established local artists, check out some unexpected street art, and visit cafes to discuss barista techniques and share Australia's love for coffee. This tour has a unique flexible itinerary and as you travel by private vehicle, you get to places others don't go. For independently-minded travellers, this is the tour for you!

Come see why the Blue Mountains are such a special place - book your spot today!
