First Choice Charters have been offering fantastic coach tours to all areas surrounding Sydney and further afield. We are the experts at providing group transportation to many of the exciting destinations and venues in New South Wales.
One such very popular tour is a trip to the Blue Mountains, one of the most rugged regions in this part of Australia. The Blue Mountains are only 80 kilometers from Sydney, and a short one hour drive from the CBD.
The Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains is an excellent destination for visitors to come all year round. The most prominent feature of the Blue Mountains are the aromatic Eucalyptus trees. And the whole atmosphere of the area is heady with fine droplets of the Eucalyptus oil, which when they combine with dust and water vapour they produce short-wave beams of light which let off a distinct blue haze, giving the mountains its dramatic colour and name.
Things To See & Do In The Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains are an outdoor paradise and excellent for many types of rural activities including: bushwalking, mountain biking, superb natural landmarks, discovery walks, art galleries, local town visits and many many more.
Katoomba is probably the most visited town in the Blue Mountains, and with its rich history is coal mining there are reminders all around this historical town over its heritage.
Take a trip up to the Katoomba Lookouts where Eaglehawk, Cahills and Landslide lookouts offer superb views of the Megalong Valley.
The Three Sisters is an attraction that cannot be missed on a visit to Katoomba, its natural beauty is simply stunning.
Leura is famed for its wonderful gardens, and although they are mostly privately owned they are open to the public. If you are visiting around October then the highly popular Leura Garden Festival and Village Fair are great fun for the whole family to go and see.
A trip to Gordon Falls Reserve is well worth the time, as visitors can experience breathtaking views of Jamison Valley if you climb up to Gordon Falls Lookout.
A beautiful scenic town offering incredible views and interesting bushwalks. Wentworth Falls Lake offers so much for the whole family to enjoy. There are great picnic and barbeque areas, safe swimming, a kids playground, even wild ducks to feed although this is discouraged.
Wentworth Falls is a great place to enter into the Blue Mountains as there are some spectacular natural attractions really close at hand from Breakfast Point, Wentworth Falls, Queens Cascades and Rocket Point Lookout.
