  • Sydney, Australia

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.
