Gaze at the great dividing range

The Blue Mountains are bedecked in eucalyptus-rich rainforests that have thrived for over 100 million years. The blazing Australian sun and fine oil mist from the eucalyptus leaves combine to emit a unique blue haze, earning the Blue Mountains their name. Take in views of the world's third-largest mountain range–the Great Dividing Range, also known as the Eastern Highlands. Overlooking the Jamison Valley is a rocky trio called the Three Sisters which was formed over 200 million years ago. The local myth surrounding The Three Sisters' origin is even more captivating, be sure to ask your guide about it!

Enjoy views of Mt. Solitary, Ruined Castle, and Kedumba Valley

Glance through your window and snap photos of Mount Solitary by the rugged turret of Ruined Castle. Perched on a rock platform, the King's Tableland features engravings of indigenous fauna, including Kangaroos. Situated in proximity, Megalong Valley is home to many vineyards. The valley serves as a getaway to the southern escarpment, distinguished by sandstone cliffs that line the Jamison, Kanimbla, and Hartley Valleys. Sight gorgeous Leura cascades before returning to the city in the comfort of your bus.
