Sydney's majestic Blue Mountains, only 80 kilometres from the centre of Sydney City, provides a stark contrast. Whilst the city has its harbours and skyscrapers, the Blue Mountains is a picture perfect wilderness the size of a small country.
Many companies take tours to the Blue Mountain. However, one, Travel Ideology comes out on top when you are looking for a nature- and wildlife-based private tour of the Blue Mountains, including the most amazing views of the golden sandstone escarpments.
