The Blue Mountains

Just two hours from Sydney lie the Blue Mountains. Our three nights here give you a chance to meet koalas, wombats, and kookaburras. Follow a nature trail to the top of a rugged cliff, where the blue mist of eucalyptus oils fill the air below. You can hike down these cliffs on a steep but well-protected trail, or take a dramatic but less stomach-twisting route along the top.

Looking for extra adventure? Try canyoning. In the morning, learn to rappel. In the afternoon, we’ll splash along a narrow canyon, jumping or sliding into pools of water, then rappelling through a waterfall to make our way out. Canyoning is optional! But those who try it always remember the day as a highlight of their vacation in Australia.
