Choices are individual day tours to the Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley and combining all three of Sydney’s scenic regions including Port Stephens in one sensational tour.
The Blue Mountains Sunset Tour
We cannot argue the fact that the Blue Mountains is becoming a more popular tourist destination. You can expect visitors to crowd the scenic attractions during peak hours.
Wildlife Tours creatively redesigned the tour by getting into the Blue Mountains in time for the sunset. This means you can have more time strolling down the laneways of Sydney in the morning, then leave the city by about lunchtime.
It takes more than an hour’s drive to reach the Blue Mountains. The tour lets you avoid the crowd and Sydney’s peak hour traffic.
Highlights of the tour include capturing the stunning Australian highland sunset and guided bushwalks through the scenic trails reaching the lookout of Wentworth Falls, spotting native wildlife along the way. You can stay at Echo Point a little longer, enjoying the views of the Three Sisters and the Jamison Valley below in your solitude.
The tour caps with watching the magical Blue Mountains sunset.
Hunter Valley Wine, Vodka, and Chocolate Tour
New South Wales’ Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s premier and the oldest wine region.
In this casual, educational, and entertaining tour, we travel straight into the heart of the Hunter Valley. We explore the best that the region exhibits – from gourmet produce, chocolates, and wine to vodka, liqueur, and beer.
It’s going to be a relaxed yet engaging visit to the famed cellar doors of Hunter Valley.
Highlights of the tour include the following:
Travel north over the Harbour Bridge, leaving the frenzy of the metropolis behind, the first stop is at the Hunter Valley Chocolate Factory. Head straight to the showroom for tests of their chocolates and fudges. Then time to snatch an espresso and unwind.
The next stop would be at Hunter Distillery, the only approved organic distillery in the region, for vodka and liqueur tastings. Set in a shed with a dazzling setting, the distillery produces a remarkable range of liquors including vodkas, liqueurs, schnapps and their award-winning Copperware Gin!
There’s a visit to the quaint Matilda Bay Brewhouse, set within the grounds of the Hunter Resort, for lunch and some bottles of ale on tap.
And from the brewery, we visit two cellar door wineries chosen for their excellent customer service and the quality of their wines. The Hunter Valley is acclaimed for its iconic Semillon. But there are also other wine varieties to choose from.
Port Stephens, Hunter Valley, and Blue Mountains Tour
This 2-day excursion encompasses the three major scenic destinations of New South Wales into one amazing tour. We travel to the beautiful Port Stephens, the charming Hunter Valley, and the mystical Blue Mountains.
Highlights of the trip include a visit to the coastal town of Nelson Bay to watch the dolphins onboard a cruise, sand boarding on the dunes of Stockton Beach, or taking a dip at the blue waters of Port Stephens.
Then it is followed by a visit to Hunter Valley for wine, vodka, liqueur, beer, and chocolate tastings. Plus, an authentic Aussie barbecue and an overnight accommodation.
On the second day, we traverse the Great Dividing Range while on the lookout for Australian native wildlife along the way. Upon reaching the Blue Mountains, there will be guided nature walks on scenic trails and the spectacular views from the lookout platforms overlooking the Jamison Valley.
