Blue Mountains Day Tour with BBQ Lunch & Wild Kangaroos - Coast Warriors

Avoid the tourist traps and feel like a local as our small, experienced team of young, local Aussie's introduce you to The Blue Mountains' best spots, including its' hikes, waterfalls, and wild kangaroos...

Highlights

  • Less touristic small group tour run by fun, experienced Aussie guides aboard "Trudy" - Australias' coolest Aussie bus
  • See the Three Sisters Rock formations and stop at Lincoln Rock for amazing photos
  • Check out the best selfie worthy viewing points and waterfalls at Wentworth Falls and Jamieson Valley
  • Enjoy a freshly prepared, big Aussie BBQ and BYO drinks
  • See wild kangaroos and often Kookaburras and Lyre birds
  • Go swimming in a local natural swimming hole or visit a secret lookout

The Coast Warriors Blue Mountains Tour adventure commences early in the morning with some central Sydney pickups near your hostel/hotel. After everyone shuffles on the bus (she is called Trudy) we have just over an hour to acquaint ourselves with the group or grab a pillow for a nap before we hit our first stop Glenbrook.

Glenbrook in the lower Blue Mountains is the hometown of one of our awesome local guides who has pieced together this awesome day trip. In Glenbrook we’ll stop for a quick coffee/smoothie, bathrooms or try an amazing locally made gourmet meat pie before we journey on.

Trudy powers further up the mountains to Ktown (Katoomba) home of the famous Three Sisters rock formations - the iconic image of the Blue Mountains. We'll make a stop at Lincolns Rock where you'll soak up amazing views over the bush valley and have the opportunity to capture some fantastic photos. Now that the most touristy stop of the day is complete we head over to the more chilled and locally known Wentworth Falls.

At Wenty Falls we embark on an approximate 90 minute moderate level, nature enclosed hike down through the undercliff walk, via the 'Stairs of Doom' and National Pass to the bottom of the 187 meter waterfall in Jamison Valley or some travelers call it Jurassic Park.

On the hike we stop at several amazing viewpoints where the true beauty and size of Sydney's beautiful Blue Mountains can really be appreciated in true backpackers style which is through the lens of your iPhone / Samsung or for those really weird travellers just their two eyes!

This hike is not overly demanding but if you don’t feel up to it then you can take the easy walk to the first waterfall and cliff walk then stroll back in your own time to the bbq area and have some free time to watch the kookaburras, Magpies or attend to creating today's Instagram story.

All that sightseeing, bush walking and waterfalls makes people hungry, so after we hike back up the Stairs Of Doom back to your Aussie BBQ lunch with a taste of Kangaroo. You are welcoming to bring your own drinks of any kind to have with your lunch which you can store on our onboard Esky (ice box). We are happy to say that Coast Warriors is Sydneys only operator to cook a fresh barbie lunch….lunch is on us! We sell water bottles for a cheap $1 with all proceeds going to charity though sometimes we are out of bottles. Please be eco friendly and bring a water bottle that you may refill throughout the day.

After lunch we head deep into the bush of the Blue Mountains national park, down a long dirt road to a valley that is a popular kangaroo hang out and camping spot. These kangaroos are as wild as they can get and we often see joeys in and out of the pouch and the occasional kangaroo fight!

After getting a few snaps of kangaroos we head to a secret Coast Warriors lookout that we only know of because of our wealth of local knowledge. Though on the warmer days we substitute this secret viewpoint for a dip and sunbath at my local swimming spot in G’town! This local swimming hole is as Aussie as can be, it is surrounded by bush, birds, rocks, some random natural sand and above are clear blue skies.

On our return to Sydney city, we drop off right near central station below Wake Up Hostel only. Quite often our groups are social/awesome and go to a nearby bar for a beer party together. Side Bar is a 15-second walk and has some cheap drinks.

Fabulous - Loved the Hike & the Aussie Barbie !

Had a an absolutely fabulous time with the group. Very responsive and accommodating with requests. The guide was friendly and helpful, especially to those with difficulty navigating the stairs of death ! Aussie barbie was delicious. We had kangaroo and Tim Tams together with sausages, a fresh salad. Great that we got stopped off where we could buy our own drinks and get juiced up during lunch and thereafter : )

Awesome Trip!

This trip was great! Trent is an awesome guide. He grew up in the area so he knows all the best spots to go. In addition to the typical look out spots, you get to do a short hike to a beautiful waterfall which was the highlight for me! Lunch was provided (you'll get to try kangaroo!) which was a really nice bonus. Trent was super personable and knowledgeable and had the entire group engaged all day. This tour was one of my favorite parts of my trip to Sydney. You definitely won't be disappointed with it!
