The cosmopolitan Sydney cityscape gives way to the glistening cliffs and misty eucalyptus canopies of the Blue Mountains as you journey through little towns and admire iconic natural landscapes.
Sophisticated Sydney is your launchpad for a memorable city-meets-bush experience. On arrival, spend the day at leisure.
