EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY OF THE BLUE MOUNTAINS
Absorb the true Australian wilderness with our up close and personal visit to the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains.
Immerse yourself in nature and prepare to head off the beaten track and break a bit of a sweat doing so. We want to expose you to stunning private vantage points only a true local would know – ensuring you experience the spectacular wilderness of the Blue Mountains from a privileged perspective.
Be awed by the spectacular natural wonders that surround you and the crisp fresh air as you hike into the mountains.
From towering sandstone escarpments covered by lush forests of gum trees to valleys full of wildlife and riverbeds, we will design hikes and bush walks tailored to your ability.
The Wentworth Falls hike takes approximately one hour down to the valley floor alongside a giant waterfall. A perfect activity before lunch – get this hike under your belt so you can enjoy a cold beer and a hearty lunch in one of the mountain towns…on us!
After lunch, get a glimpse into the rich history of the Blue Mountains – you will learn how Aboriginal tribes have lived off the land for thousands of years and the British settled there less than 300 years ago.
Ask your host to show you some of the many well-preserved Aboriginal rock engravings throughout the mountains. You will also get a peek at the legendary Three Sisters and hear the extraordinary history of the curious rock formations – there is so much to discover!

Canyoning and Abseiling
A full day of adventure starts with abseiling, building from 5 to 30 metre high cliffs. After lunch, take a scenic 20 minute walk to the start of the canyon. Begin your afternoons activities by wading into the creek then jumping into a rock pool, the first of several jumps and swims. This canyon is an exciting affair with water jumps, exhilarating swims, waterslides and fantastic scenery. The final abseil out of the canyon is one of the best waterfall abseils in the mountains. A 30 metre waterfall down to a deep rock pool below. This is not just a brilliant waterfall abseil but also a fantastic photo opportunity.

“Terrific day. I can’t imagine a better private tour to see the Blue Mountains. It’s obvious Splendour feels personally responsible to ensure that you have a great experience.
