Full description
Be part of a small group of no more than 11 travelers and journey by comfortable minibus, south along the beaches of Botany Bay and into the Royal National Park. Wind through the forest and stop at Bald Hill Lookout, which affords sweeping views of the Illawarra coastline and the famous Sea Cliff Bridge. Next, it's on to the family-run Symbio Wildlife Park, active in koala conservation. Find out everything you ever wanted to know about these fascinating marsupials during a private koala presentation with a keeper. Snap the ultimate selfie - just you and a koala. You’ll also be able to feed kangaroos and wallabies and get up close with native Australian wildlife. Continue to follow the scenic coastline of the Grand Pacific Drive across the Sea Cliff Bridge as it sweeps out over the ocean and on to Bulli Beach where you’ll enjoy lunch in a café popular with locals that overlooks the beach and an ocean pool. Bring your swimmers for a pre-lunch dip if the sun is out. In the afternoon head up through temperate rainforest into the Southern Highlands. An easy hike leads to viewpoints that take in the spectacular sandstone gorges and towering waterfalls of the Morton National Park. Finally, you’ll drive along country roads to a boutique winery to taste locally-produced, cool climate wine before returning to Sydney. Arrival back at Circular Quay is around 6:30 PM.

We enjoyed this tour very much and highly recommend! Steve did a great job as a guide and our stops were worthwhile and interesting. At the Symbio Wildlife Park you really do get up close and personal with the Koalas and Wallabies! Getting out of Sydney and seeing the southern coast and to see the waterfall was very nice. It is a long day with a lot of driving, but worth the time and cost! The only small recommendations for improvement on this tour: 1. For the winery visit (the winery itself was nice), but the pours were very small and the winery did not provide any snacks (re: crackers, etc.) with the tasting as most wineries around the world do; plus the host didn't spend too much time with our table. 2. For the wildlife park, I would possibly just shorten the free time to roam by perhaps 15-30 minutes.

This was an amazing, jam-packed tour! Up close and personal with Australian wildlife, visiting amazing views at three national parks, delicious lunch and wine tasting! This tour was a fantastic way to see a ton of Australia right outside of Sydney in just one day. Steve is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and has streamlined everything about this tour to make it feel relaxing and enjoyable. Cannot recommend this tour enough!!!
