What to Expect
After central Sydney pickup, relax during your ride to the Blue Mountains in a comfortable, 20-seater minivan. Cross Sydney Harbour Bridge into the Blue Mountains, stopping at a clifftop viewpoint to gaze at the Jamison Valley—a rain forest-filled ravine framed by sandstone cliffs. Then, visit Scenic World where you'll glide between clifftops on scenic walkways before heading to Echo Point for views of the towering Three Sisters. Next, enjoy a chef-prepared lunch at a historic hotel (dietary requirements can be accommodated). Next, visit award-winning Featherdale Wildlife Park, where you’ll see kangaroos, koalas, emus, and crocodiles, before a ferry ride to Sydney along the Parramatta River. Pass Sydney Harbour’s landmarks, including the Opera House and disembark at Circular Quay, where your trip concludes.

The idea is perfect but when the weather is rainy and windy(lets say terrible) the Company should cancel the trip and pay money back. Otherwise it is daylight robbery. We were very disappointed.
