The Blue Mountains National Park is one of seven national parks that make up the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. This wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests boasts luxury retreats and stunning views. Today your guide will take you off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.
7.30AM Depart from the hotel with AEA Luxury Tours. Our first stop of the day is at Calmsley Hill, a working farm also home to Kangaroo, Emu, Wombat and Koala. Enjoy morning tea and time to wander at leisure.
From Calmsley Hill we continue to ascend the Blue Mountains via the highway. We will visit one of a range of stunning outlooks of the Jamison Valley seeing beautiful vistas. Where possible this will be away from the crowds of tours that visit the mountains each day with other operators, thus our guests will enjoy a stress and hurry free environment taking in the views and information imparted by their guide.
Continuing, we arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout away from the crowds for views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural attraction you can’t help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colours. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and time available for you to take some great photos.
We then make our way around the mountain towards the village of Blackheath and our lunch venue the Hydro Majestic. Here in this relaxed venue with stunning views. We enjoy a 2-course lunch, food only. All diets are catered for (excluding Kosher Meals). Beverages can be purchased at your own expense from the Bar
The afternoon is spent visiting a selection of lookouts. Once you clap your eyes on the view from Govetts Leap you’ll know why it’s one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180m 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. We then stop briefly to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or orange juice at the delightful Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens our last stop, where we enjoy the sweeping views across to Sydney before travelling down the Bells Line of Road to arrive back at your hotel approximately 4.30 – 5.00pm.

About the 3 Sisters
The iconic 3 Sisters is a majestic rock formation that stands as a testament to the timeless beauty of the Australian landscape. The region in Point Katoomba has long been a favourite scenic destination, captivating visitors from around the world with its sheer grandeur and awe-inspiring vistas.
The Three Sisters is a unique rock formation representing three sisters who were turned to stone according to Aboriginal legend. The story varies among Aboriginal groups, but a common version is that the sisters, Meehni, Wimlah, and Gunnedoo, belonged to the Katoomba tribe and fell in love with three brothers from a rival tribe, the Nepean tribe. However, tribal law forbade their marriage.
The brothers decided to capture the sisters, leading to a tribal battle. To protect the sisters during the conflict, a witch doctor from the Katoomba tribe turned them into stone. He intended to reverse the spell after the battle but was killed, leaving the sisters in their current form as an eternal reminder of the fight.
