Sunset Blue Mountains Tour
Discover the charm of this spectacular World Heritage Listed region without the crowds on our Blue Mountains Sunset Tour. This tour departs later in the morning, meaning you can sleep in or explore Sydney before we head out to experience sunset at one of Sydney’s most incredible attractions. You'll have the opportunity to fully appreciate the beauty of the Blue Mountains from popular lookout spots once the crowds have gone home, and hopefully catch a glimpse of the native animals more active at this time of day. Discover the sprawling mountainous scenery that spans back thousands of years and learn about its unique history as you experience it at one of the most spectacular times of the day.

Sleep in and start the Sunset Blue Mountains Tour later in the morning as we head directly to the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage Listed National Park. Once we’ve arrived, you can see for yourself how the scenery seems to sprawl out forever, covering thousands of hectares and bringing together ancient sandstone escarpments and pretty eucalyptus forests that give the mountains their blue haze.
We’ll kick things off on with a bushwalk through the forest. As we go, we’ll pass the centuries-old Jamison Valley below, and you’ll learn all about the unique range of flora and fauna that calls the region home. We’ll also offer fascinating insights into the indigenous people who have lived in the area for thousands of years and why they believe it is so special.
Afterwards, we’ll grab a bite to eat before heading to the impressive Three Sisters rock formation. This is where we’ll watch the sun dip below the horizon, casting a warm orange glow over the surrounding scenery. By now the crowds will have gone home and we will have this spectacular lookout almost to ourselves, perfect for taking in the golden hour of sunset. Keep your eye out for kangaroos at this time as they are more active at dusk. As we conclude our Sunset Blue Mountains Tour, we’ll take you back to Sydney where the tour comes to an end.
