Wilderness Tours

Discover our exclusive new tours through the Mount Tomah Conservation Area of 186 ha led by a specialist guide with detailed knowledge of Blue Mountains' plants and wildlife.

Imagine walking into a luminescent green forest with tree ferns towering ten or more metres into the air above your head. Despite the summer heat you are cool because the canopy only begrudgingly lets some sun seep through to the forest floor. As you walk slowly along the thickly mulched track a lyrebird whistles evocatively down the valley.

Rainforest and Woodland Walk (1.5-2 hrs)

Explore this secret world of remnant rainforest, abundant birdlife, ancient rock formations and panoramic views. Wander through rainforest and native woodland while learning of the diversity of Eucalyptus species that led to the World Heritage listing of the Blue Mountains. Reasonable fitness, sturdy shoes, sun hat and water bottle recommended.
