With 31 stops across Katoomba, Leura, and Wentworth Falls we give you the freedom to explore this spectacular World Heritage wilderness on Sydney's doorstep - all at your own pace. More flexible than a day tour, cheaper and less stressful than renting a car, and much more fun than trying to cover all the sights on foot. With buses running every half hour, you'll have plenty of time to hit all the highlights. And with some of the best bush walks anywhere in the world, including Wentworth Falls, you will see the most!While you relax and soak up the unbeatable views from the top deck, our friendly drivers will entertain you with a running commentary of fascinating local facts and stories. And at the end of the day, we'll get you back to the train or your hotel with time and energy to spare. Start planning your perfect day in the Blue Mountains now.
