What you'll do

This is ordinarily a SATURDAY or SUNDAY tour, because that is when the wineries are open. But I can certainly plan a tour for your group on any other day—please just ask! From Sydney this Experience is a day trip of 9 or 10 hours. You will need to catch an express—but scenic!—train to the Blue Mountains. From Sydney Central the train takes about one hour and 40 minutes and costs about $6.00 (and much cheaper on Sundays!). I will meet you at one of the quiet Blue Mountains train stations. If you are staying at one of the many hotels and B&Bs in the Blue Mountains, I will happily pick you up from your accommodation. Travelling in a classic vintage VW Microbus, we will visit outstanding places in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains west of Sydney. The Blue Mountains receives millions of visitors each year, but we will avoid the crowded tourist spots! Once aboard 'Helga', my 1975 VW bus, we will make our way in retro style toward the stunningly pretty Megalong Valley. Along the way, we will stop at places of scenic splendour—the kinds of views for which the Blue Mountains are famous—and visit waterfalls. We'll take a lunch stop—perhaps a local cafe or a picnic, depending on the weather and your preference. Then we'll drive down into the Megalong where we'll walk in some ancient rainforest, visit a secret cave, drop in to a vineyard or two, and see some local kangaroos.

I live locally in the Blue Mountains, so my knowledge of this beautiful area will give you a deeper understanding of the landscape — I will also take you to hidden places that Sydney tour companies don't even know about! I have a background in natural sciences and experience working with the national parks service and other environmental agencies. I maintain a classic vintage VW Kombi Microbus which I use for for tours and events. As well as going on a cool ride, you will see spectacular but less-crowded places in the Blue Mountains. On weekends, we can visit boutique vineyards in a lovely valley called the Megalong. (On weekdays we can find plenty of other things to see and do!)
