En Route

Sit back and relax as you travel into the amazing Blue Mountains. Your Driver Guide will provide details of the day’s itinerary while you enjoy the journey west.


The charming village of Leura is one of several in the Blue Mountains that perfectly captures the spirit of the region — fresh mountain air and stunning scenery. Its pretty, tree-lined main street is great for browsing through its many antique shops, art galleries and bookstores. Why not enjoy an optional takeaway lunch from Loaves & Dishes cafes.


Head to the iconic Blue Mountains and drive through the tourist town of Katoomba, the gateway to the region. Katoomba first became known when a coal mine was established there in 1879. The town features lovely heritage cottages, a well-established guest house and hotel industry and many cafes and restaurants.

 Blue Mountains photo stop

From a spectacular vantage point you’ll be treated to a view that is awe-inspiring. This mountainous World Heritage region covers an area of up to 10,000 square kilometres and features dramatic cliffs, deep canyons and lush vegetation, particularly eucalypt.

 The Three Sisters

You’ll also see the imposing Three Sisters. According to Aboriginal legend, this unusual rock formation represents three sisters who were turned to stone. They are an amazing sight as the sun shifts to cast magnificent colours across the rock face.

 Jenolan Caves

Now you head to the Jenolan Caves via the stunning scenery of the Cliff Drive. On arrival you’ll meet your experienced Guide who will take you through the oldest known open cave system in the world. Known to the local Aboriginal people as — Binoomea — (Dark Places), the Jenolan Cave system stretches over an enormous 40 kilometres of multi-level passages, many still undergoing explorations. There are nine caves open to visitors, all featuring amazing lighting, underground rivers and limestone formations.

Adventure Caving

Put on a hard hat with a miner’s light and pull on your overalls to experience the thrill of crawling through unlit caves. Note: a moderate level of fitness is required. Minimum age is 10 years.

Takeaway Lunch

Enjoy a takeaway lunch from Loaves & Dishes while you relax with fellow travellers and take a break at the beautiful Blue Lake at Jenolan Caves.

 Lucas Cave

You’ll be captivated by Lucas Cave, the largest of the Jenolan Caves. Its chambers are simply incredible. The highest chamber, reaching 54 metres, is known as the Cathedral and, with its incredible acoustic capabilities, has provided the setting for many underground concerts.

Please note: At certain times, Lucas Cave will be replaced with a visit to Imperial or Chifley Cave.

 Blue Lake

Before heading back to the city, you simply must take in the beauty of the Blue Lake. This gorgeous sight is the result of mineral laden water seeping through the limestone caves. When cast in sunlight, the lake takes on the most captivating vivid blue colour. Definitely a great photo opportunity!
