In the Blue Mountains, you can be five minutes from a coffee shop while standing on the edge of some of the largest untouched wilderness in the world.

Your journey starts at North Head's Q Station hotel which enjoys panoramic views of Sydney Harbour from a national park, home to endangered Long-nosed Bandicoots and Little Penguins. Then you’ll travel to the heart of the Blue Mountains, a private nature reserve in the Capertee Valley, as you take a guided search for Red-necked Wallabies, Wombats and colourful cockatoos, before dining at your farmstay. Finally, you’ll stand at the edge of precipitous cliffs, overlooking sheer-sided valleys 1,000m deep on the edge of the impenetrable Gross Wilderness. You’ll take a guided walk deep into a rainforest valley (returning by cable car) and learn about the world-famous Wollemi Pine, a Jurassic remnant discovered in 1994.

Itinerary

Day 1-2 After arrival in Sydney, you’ll be transferred to Q Station Hotel, a hidden gem in the northern reaches of Sydney Harbour. Long-nosed Bandicoots and Ring-tailed Possums can be seen on a guided evening walk with local expert and author of Wildlife of Australia, Louise Egerton. The following day you will experience the natural beauty of Sydney Harbour on a full-day guided walking tour.

Day 3-4 Catch the train to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world, where you will be picked up by your guide and driven to the stunning Capertee Valley. If weather and season permits, that evening you'll be joined by bat expert Marg Turton where she will conduct microbat trapping. After a walk and leisurely breakfast at your B&B, you will be driven to Katoomba to explore the historic township.

Day 5 In the morning, you will be met by local bush-walker and Blue Mountains wildlife expert Wyn Jones. Wyn will take you for a leisurely walk into a deep canyon past spectacular scenery and under rainforest waterfalls. From the bottom of the valley, you'll take a cable car ride up the mountain. In the afternoon, you’ll catch the train back to Sydney.
