Blue Mountains Eco Active Day Trip from Sydney
Featherdale Wildlife Park
Visit Featherdale Wildlife Park where you can laugh with a kookaburra, see wombats, dingos and many more Australian native animals. Make sure you don't smile at the 4-metre crocodile!
Blue Mountains National Park Bush Walks
The World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park covers over one million hectares of land to the west of Sydney and is an inspiring mix of rain-forest, canyons and tall forests. Your guide will lead you on an informative bush walk through this nature lover's paradise. You'll see colorful birds, unique native animals and the greatest concentration of eucalyptus diversity on the continent. Medium fitness is required and make sure to bring a bottle of water for the walk.
After a big bush walk stop for a picnic lunch at a scenic location in the National Park. If it's wet or cold, there is a warm and dry alternative location.
The Three Sisters
The famous Three Sisters rock formation is one of the most iconic images in Australia. The views overlooking the Jamison Valley are incredible. As well as getting that classic photo, you'll hear the stories of the local Aboriginal legends.
Your guide will take you on an amazing cliff face walk down through rain-forest into the national park. Walk back up again or hold on tight as you ride on the world’s steepest railway up (own expense). Or you can just chill out at the top admiring the views and have a coffee or ice-cream. (own expense).
Your local guide operates under world class standards of safety and environmental practices with documented and practiced emergency procedures, environmental policies, and excellent educational content including information on indigenous culture, fauna and flora. They must comply with different government regulations and meet the standards of various regulatory bodies - both state and federal. While it appears that the national park is free to visit in actual fact your local operators pays a per person fee. This fee goes towards maintaining and preserving the national park, as well as enabling them to call on assistance in the unlikely scenario that someone gets injured or lost while in the national park.

My husband and I had a great day with Colorful tours. Our guide was very pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable. The group size was very good too- only 14 people. I would consider a longer trip in Blue Mountains next week. The trip was physically challenging, so come prepared with good boots and energy level for hiking.
A very enjoyable experience with our guide Nick. Good value for the money! For tall people like us, the bus was quite uncomfortable though.....
It was the best experience ever and the tour guide was so good and friendly, he gave us so many information about the history of Blue Mountains and three sisters, at the same time the weather was perfect.
The Blue Mountains are absolutely lovely and we enjoyed the trip. We made the mistake of booking it on the busiest day of the year for Blue Mountain tours. We didn't realize that 12/30 was such a popular day for Blue Mountain tours and everything was jammed with people. The reason for four stars instead of five was the Featherdale Wildlife Park. It's not nearly as nice as some of the other wildlife parks we visited and you could tell that many of the animals were very distressed. This isn't necessarily the fault of the tour provider but if we had been rating the Featherdale Wildlife Park alone, we'd have given it a 1 star rating.
