Full description
Depart from your hotel in the morning and make your way to the first stop of the day. Calmsley Hill is a working farm also home to kangaroos, emus, wombats, and koalas. Enjoy morning tea and time to wander at your leisure.

From Calmsley Hill, continue on to ascend the Blue Mountains via the highway. Stop at a stunning outlook of the Jamison Valley and see beautiful vistas. Continue on to Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous Three Sisters. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and you will have time to take photos.

Travel around the mountains and arrive at Evans Lookout where you will be issued your lunch pack and instructions for your 2-hour self-guided hike. This is without a doubt one of the most scenic hikes available in the mountains taking you across a number of valleys and ridges as you hike from Evans Lookout to Govetts Leap all the while looking out across Australia’s Grand Canyon, The Grose Valley.

The hike concludes at Govetts Leap, one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfalls drop a whopping 180 meters to the base of the cliff. If you’re not mesmerized by the dancing waves of water spray, you’ll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose wilderness.

Your last stop is the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens where there’s time for a short inspection of the flora including the ancient Wollemi Pine. From here commence your return to Sydney with an approximately 4:30 PM to 5:00 PM arrival.
