Bunch of paragraphs for those readers
The Coast Warriors Blue Mountains adventure commences with some central Sydney pickups near your hostel/hotel. After everyone shuffles on the bus we have just over an hour to acquaint ourselves with the group or feeling a little anti social grab a pillow for a nap before we hit our first stop [link] yewww!
Glenbrook in the lower Blue Mountains is the hometown of one of our awesome local guides who has pieced together this awesome day trip. In Glenbrook we’ll stop for a quick coffee/smoothie, bathrooms or try an amazing locally made gourmet meat pie before we journey on.
Trudy powers further up the mountains to Ktown (Katoomba) home of the famous Three Sisters rock formations - the iconic image of the Blue Mountains. We view the three ladies up close where your guide will inform you of their aboriginal significance. Now that the most touristy stop of the day is complete we head over to the more chilled and locally known Wentworth Falls.
At Wenty Falls we embark on an approximate 90 minute moderate level, nature enclosed hike down through the undercliff walk, via the 'Stairs of Doom' and National Pass to the bottom of the 187 meter waterfall in Jamison Valley or some travelers call it Jurassic Park especially on foggy days.
On the hike we stop at several amazing viewpoints where the true beauty and size of Sydney's beautiful Blue Mountains can really be appreciated in true the millennials style which is through the lens of your iPhone / Android or for those really weird travellers just their two eyes! Don't worry you don't have to be a millennial to use a smartphone
This hike is not overly demanding but if you don’t feel up to it then you can take the easy walk to the first waterfall and cliff walk then stroll back in your own time to the bbq area and have some free time to watch the kookaburras, Magpies or attend to creating today's Instagram story.
All that sightseeing, bush walking and waterfalls makes people hungry, so after we hike back up the Stairs Of Doom back to your Aussie BBQ lunch which isn't just a sausage on bread. At the barbie feel free to taste one of the leanest meats in the world, kangaroo.... we eat everything here. We do also cater for veggos and vegans. You are welcome to bring your own drinks of any kind to have with your lunch which you can store on our onboard Esky (ice box), we do also attend a bottleo on tour. We are happy to say that Coast Warriors is Sydneys only tour operator to cook a fresh barbie lunch…[link] is on us! We sell water bottles for a cheap $1 with all proceeds going to charity though sometimes we are out of water but Please be eco friendly and bring a water bottle that you may refill throughout the day.
After lunch we head over to Lincoln's Rock which is a truly amazing rock lodge with uninterrupted views of Jamison Valley... you feel like you are standing on the edge of the world. Then we head deep into the bush of the Blue Mountains national park in Glenbrook, down a long dirt road to a valley that is a popular kangaroo hang out and camping spot. These kangaroos are as wild as they can get and we often see joeys in and out of the pouch, the occasional kangaroo fight and kookaburras.
After getting a few snaps of kangaroos we head to a secret Coast Warriors lookout that we only know of because of our wealth of local knowledge. Though on the warmer days we substitute this secret viewpoint for a dip and sun bath at my local swimming spot in Glenny called Jellybean Pool! This local swimming hole is as Aussie as can be, it is surrounded by bush, birds, rocks, some random natural sand and above are clear blue skies.
Upon return in Sydney, we often finish with a drink together at a local bar for anyone that wants to continue into the night with their new [link] be soft and go home and sleep. Our designated drop off is at 814 George Street in the city under Wake Up hostel and only minutes walk fron central train/bus station, Chinatown and the beautiful Darling Harbour
