Description

Enjoy a day of quintessential Australian experiences exploring the coast and highlands to Sydney’s south.

Imagine a Big Day Out with up close and personal experiences with iconic Australian wildlife, expansive vistas of coastal scenery, eucalyptus-clad valleys and waterfalls plunging over sandstone escarpments, scenic drives through national parks and along bays, beaches and country backroads, beachside dining and cool-climate wine tasting.

Well, you’ve imagined the wonderful one day Wildlife, Waterfalls & Wine tour!

This extraordinary day tour to the south of Sydney winds through Australia’s oldest national park, takes in spectacular coastal scenery along the Grand Pacific Drive, then climbs the sandstone escarpment to return via the forests and farmland of the picturesque Southern Highlands.

Along the way you’ll meet koalas and kangaroos, traverse the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge, enjoy lunch (and perhaps a dip in the ocean) at a seaside café, wander through eucalyptus forest to views of a tumbling waterfall, and sample some of the cool climate wines for which the region has developed a reputation.

Reviews

Highlights for me was winding through The Royal National Park, the Fitzroy Falls lookout and I absolutely love the Southern Highlands…wineries!

This tour is incredible!! Whether you have a few days or weeks, this is a tour you don’t want to miss!! The one on one with the koala’s was a blast, the wine tasting was delicious and the scenic views spectacular.

We had an amazing time. From the koala experience to feeding the kangaroos to the wine tasting and beach side dinner. All was fabulous. Amazing day!

This experience was an opportunity to go to places we would never have gotten to on our own. The day was packed with many great experiences….  I’d definitely recommend this tour!

An awesome day away with wildlife, waterfalls and wine – plus a number of beaches, iconic towns and national parks to boot. A great one day away. I cannot recommend it enough!

I’ve been living in Sydney for 3 years but I hadn’t explored Australian beautiful nature and wildlife yet. This was the perfect tour for me… I wish I could do it every day!
