Hello. Thank you for your comments. Yes, there are many places to take in the views in the Blue Mountains. If I have a group which hasn't seen much of the city, (time allowing) we can make a stop or two on the way back in. All the best. Glenn More

Hello. Thanks for your comments. Happy to hear you enjoyed the day. The wildlife park is great for those looking to get close to koalas, which are hard to see in the wild around Sydney. The tea rooms are in a nice, quiet location and ideal for groups who want to get away from the more touristy areas. Cheers, Glenn. More

Hi. Thanks for posting a review. It was nice meeting you and your lovely family. It's quite a long day for the kids and I'm glad we were able to keep them entertained. The changeable weather in the Blue Mountains does mean we have to adapt to conditions on the day. All the best, Glenn. More

Hunter Valley is a interesting place to visit. Recommend you visit on a quiet day and limit the vineyards to select bunch. Do some research beforehand.
