  • To Sydney, it is inevitable to come to the Blue Mountain to play, the mode of transportation is very simple, you can take the railway to the bus, or from the pilot, or to join a day travel group, this is to take the railway, the car is very cheap, so far away only 8 Australian coins, the back of the bus is still transferred without money, can brush the Aussie card, the weather factor is very important, the visit when the daily atmosphere is clear, Standing on the echo corner of the observation deck, the whole blue mountain veins and the rainforest beneath it, because the yugali tree scattered a faint blue cloudy air, really very blue, worthy of the Blue Mountain, in fact, it is too beautiful. Of course, the whole Blue mountain is not the echo angle to see it over, he has too many places to play, because I am the time to come back to the time is limited, naturally to go to the most classic view of the world, take the tram bus walk, if the time is plentiful, the proposal can stay here for a few nights, go that step, there are too many trails to go, some distance is very long, But that's going to go deep into the beauty of the Blue Mountain, and it must come here, and it's called the world's legacy to be unworthy.

  • Our tour took us to the Blue Mountains where we enjoyed the sites and many attractions. We had a nice lunch and enjoyed visiting the quaint little towns in the area. If you have time it is a nice day ...  more »
  • Excellent place to observe nature and eating rich. This trip can be made from Sydney in guided tour or train and with the transport service of the people. I did tour and I think it would have saved me an important money and opened more exploited the trip. But the site is excellent, totally signposted and with route in Spanish pamphlet.

  • What a beautiful place is this. About 2 hours train journey from Sydney and you reach one of the most beautiful places in the world. The way the local government has been managing the transportation system is exceptional. They have covered almost all the tourist places and the frequency of the bus is also very good. Although if you wish to visit too interior areas, you might meed your own transport but if you’re on a day trip, using public transport would be more than enough. Thanks for a great day guys. Cheers
  • Walk down the bottom of the stairs and there is a excellent spot for taking photos. NEVER GO OVER THE BARRIERS TO TAKE A PHOTO. Its slippery and dangerous and people have been hurt doing it. Waterfalls are better viewed after rain,sometimes the waterfalls will not be running, ie in hot weather a month ago-What a beautiful place is this.

  • The mountain view is really nice. There are things to do and see for a day here. Lot of parking lot in that area. Better to book online before you go there.
  • Another vast and beautiful landscape Sydney has to offer! just so serene with mother nature. Another awesome tour guide Les, very informative on the history of the areas we saw, Les only likes hot chocolate or tea but he loves his tim tams. Les will get out of the bus and participate physically and showing you and your group around. Some of the landscapes he showed us were breathtaking, another great tour, thank you very much Les.
  • Oh Sydney, how beautiful this city is??!!! Full of outdoor activities, surrounded by stunning beaches, crystal clear water, great nature, like the Blue Mountains National Park for example, a green canyon located just 2 hours by train from downtown. They actually are called blue because, for some reason, they look blue from a distance. You won't be disappointed by this masterpiece from our beloved Mother Nature, a place were your eyes will be pleased by incredible views, your lungs will breath clean air and your body will get fit by climbing up and down the mountains. For those who love some action, the park offers some roller coaster moments too, with very much suspended in mid-air cable cars and a quite scary train that goes down a cliff. The latter is especially recommended for those who do not suffer heights. The park is incredibly well maintained, super clean and it is well conceived, making it easy to navigate. If you happen to be in great Sydney DO NOT miss the chance of visiting THE BLUE MOUNTAINS then!
