Blue Mountains Adventure & Hike Tour

Barefoot Downunder’s Blue Mountains Tour from Sydney takes you into the heart of the  World Heritage listed Blue Mountains for a big day of hiking and exploring! Escape the city and see kangaroos in the wild, hike into a Jurassic rainforest and pass epic lookouts with amazing views seeing waterfalls, including Empress Falls and Wentworth Falls. Spot native wildlife and hear the fun interesting facts of the local area from your passionate guide, take a selfie with the ‘Three Sisters’ and snap a photo of the Katoomba Street Art Walk. Take in views at one of the ultimate lookouts and enjoy a free drink back in Sydney! 

Our adventure tours from Sydney are led by our fun, experienced and passionate Aussie guides (and the owner too!) who all love to share their local knowledge as well as having a laugh and telling a few jokes along the way. Our groups are smaller so we can show you places off-the-beaten-track where not many tours visit making it a more personalised day out for our guests.

If you are looking for a true Australian experience exploring the Blue Mountains and love the outdoors and hiking, then this adventure tour is for you!

The nitty-gritty: 

Our Blue Mountains Day Tour picks up from 4 locations across Sydney before making the journey up to the mountains, forget the crowded zoo’s as we’ll show you kangaroos in the wild! Get ready for an epic 3-hour guided return hike down in Wentworth Falls and see many spectacular waterfalls, take in amazing views of the Jamison Valley, see the dramatic cliffs and scenery and spot native wildlife and birds. Learn the interesting and fun facts of the local area from your passionate Aussie guide!

The hike back up includes a couple of sections with a set of vertical stairs and steep steps so we ask everyone to have at least a medium level of fitness. (The effort is worth it!) During the warmer months bring your swimmers to cool off under one of the waterfalls if you like. 

After the big hike we take you to a small local village town in the Blue Mountains called Leura, where you can relax for lunch. We like to support the local community and there are plenty of great restaurants or cafe’s for you to choose from. They offer everything from a kangaroo burger, to fish and chips, there is a vegetarian cafe and vegan meal options at some of the restaurants or you can bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy at the nearby park. Your choice!

Snap a selfie with the famous Three Sisters rock formation and hear the dreamtime stories from your guide. Then keep your camera handy as we do a quick stop at the Katoomba Street Art Walk where you can see the local artists murals and graffiti. 

Saving the best for last, we take you out to our final lookout spot where you take in the Ultimate Views of the Blue Mountains up at #lincolnsrock! After a jam packed day of fun and adventure, jump back in the bus to relax as we pump some great tunes for the bus ride back to Sydney.

Our Blue Mountains day trip provides one drop off at the end of the day just near Central Train Station, you can leave from here or hang out with your new mates over a cold FREE beverage at a local travellers bar just outside of the drop off point. What better way to finish the day than with new mates, a free bevvy and a few laughs!

Blue Mountains Tour

One of Australia’s own World Heritage Sites, the Greater Blue Mountains area features a dynamic landscape of vast gorges, sandstone plateaus, fertile rivers and lakes, and huge cliffs diving headfirst into unexplored valleys.

The Blue Mountains are also home to rare and endangered wildlife, many of which rely on the extraordinary diversity of the area’s eucalypt species. These same trees are also responsible for the region’s name, as the landscape’s blueish hue results from the oils released by eucalypts in warm weather.

Just 60–90 minutes northwest of Sydney, the Greater Blue Mountains Area is a popular travel spot among outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. Hiking trails, abseiling, and magnificent lookouts are just a few of the things drawing more visitors to the Blue Mountains every year.

Best‡ tour of the Blue Mountains – Fantastic Day out! – TripAdvisor

I have done this tour with a number of agencies due to the nature of my work and I must say this was the best tour of the Blue Mountains I have ever done!!! Adam and Paul did such a fantastic job of looking after our group, were so professional, organised and both had so much knowledge on not only the area, but on Australian Culture and History. We were entertained from the moment we got on the bus to the moment we were dropped off. The hike that we did was absolutely beautiful! The highlight of the groups trip to Australia was made possible by Barefoot Downunder. Thank you so much for everything you do and we are so looking forward to doing this trip again! Really lovely to be away from the touristy traps and see the real Blue Mountains!

“Amazing all round” – TripAdvisor

Best blue mountains tour out there!! We were taken to places only private tours normally go, we got to see numerous waterfalls and even walk under some and the opportunity to jump in if brave enough in the cold!! Would highly recommend this tour, I learnt so much about the national park and was taken to all the best lookout spots away from the hoards of tourists. Adam is excellent! Of course the free drink at the end was an added bonus. Also a good amount of walking, if you are up for it and want to get the most out of a “hike” in the blue mountains! Overall great day out and amazing tour guide.

Best Blue Mountains day trip ever!! – TripAdvisor

Ok – I had done a lot of research on finding the best possible operator for a day at the Blue Mountains and I think the hours I spent searching paid off. Unlike all the other operators from Sydney, Barefoot Downunder includes walking and hiking and not just going around in a van or visiting the zoo. We were lucky enough to spot kangaroos out in the nature, walked an amazing trail (albeit a little challenging at some point), photographed the Three Sisters from a quiet and hidden point of view, explored the valley! I mean what else is there to do in one day? Nothing more! Thanks for buying that beer at the end! Dedinitely needed!
