Loved the Blue Mountains for the 20 minutes we spent there. Traffic going out Too long at lunch 2 hours and didn't want to shop 20 minutes.

We combined the Featherdale Wildlife Park with the Blue Mountains for a full day tour. A 4x4 vehicle took us up and around the mountains with stops for whip cracking and boomerang throwing demonstrations. The weather can be iffy so be prepared to change itineraries and enjoy the scenery.

ROB OUR TOUR GUIDE WAS VERY PERSONABLE! HIS MAIN OBJECTIVE WAS FOR US TO BE AHEAD OF ALL THE CROWDS SO THAT WE COULD ENJOY OUR TRIP TO THE MAX! WE THOUGHT THE BLUE MOUNTAINS WERE INCREDIBLE, TOOK THE TRAM RIDE ACROSS THE BLUE MOUNTAINS, VIEWED A CASCADING WATERFALL, OTHER ROCK FORMATIONS. TOOK ANOTHER TRAM DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE BLUE MOUNTAINS, WALKED AROUND IN THE RAIN FOREST. ALSO SAW AN ABORIGNAL SHOW, AND FEATHERDALE WILDLIFE PARK. JAM PACKED DAY! WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND BLUE DIAMOND TOURS!!

The tour was by 4WD bus. Booking with the cruise line was convenient, but paid more than a separately arranged tour, of course. Not sure why a 4WD was necessary; maybe for the road up to one of the lookouts. Guide showed us how to use a boomerang, the materials used for rock drawings, talked about all things Australian, and played folk music.

Loved Featherdale Wildlife Park! Great opportunity to feed by hand the kangaroos and the emus which roam freely. We had lunch at the Mount Tomah Botanical Gardens, excellent restaurant, exquisite barramundi (native Australian fish). Beautiful gardens, quite first class. The only problem was that this excursion was a 4WD adventure - however, due to bush fires, the 4WD roads were closed. SO, we essentially drove long distances in a fairly uncomfortable vehicle, for a non-4WD experience, when we could have been in a cozy, non-bumpy coach! If not for the bush fires, not only would we have gone to very good destinations, but we would have had quite a bit of fun on the gravel roads in the Blue Mountains, seeing even more idyllic scenery than we did.
