This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Local Travel Planner, Sydney, New South Wales 2000 Australia

The experience begins when a friendly guide greets you at the meeting point. You'll be part of a small group of no more than 11 travellers aboard a comfortable minibus that takes you south out of the city along the beaches of Botany Bay and through the Royal National Park. First stop is Bald Hill Lookout, a popular launch site for hang gliders and para gliders, which affords sweeping views of the Illawarra coastline and the famous Sea Cliff Bridge.

After the break it's just a few minutes drive to the family-run Symbio Wildlife Park which is active in koala conservation. Here you'll find out everything you ever wanted to know about these fascinating marsupials during a private koala experience with a keeper. Snap the ultimate selfie - just you and a koala. You’ll also be able to hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies and get up close to other native Australian wildlife.

Next you'll meander along the Grand Pacific Drive traversing the Sea Cliff Bridge as it sweeps out over the ocean, well clear of the crumbling cliffs to which the old highway clung. You’ll continue to follow the scenic coastline to a golden beach where you’ll enjoy lunch in a café popular with locals with views out over the ocean. Bring your swimmers for a dip if the sun is out!

In the afternoon you’ll head up through temperate rainforest into the Southern Highlands. An easy hike leads to viewpoints that take in the spectacular sandstone gorges and towering waterfalls of the Morton National Park.

Finally, you’ll drive along country roads to a boutique winery to sample locally-produced, cool climate wine before returning to Sydney. Arrival back at Circular Quay is around 6:30pm.

This tour was absolutely amazing! Steve, not the owner, was absolutely hilarious and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Australia. The koalas were a big hit, as well as the roos and wallabies. Centennial Wine was fantastic with a delicious raspberry dessert wine. The waterfall in the Blue Mountains was also beautiful. This was one of our favorite days of honeymoon in Australia. I would recommend to everyone!

WW and W exceeded expectations on every element of the trip. Steve, #1, the owner and tour operator, is well-informed (he grew up in the area), congenial (answers any and every question), and was willing to hike us off the beaten track to see a Lyrebird’s courtship ritual in action. Great sense of humor too. The lunch was delicious; sites all interesting; the small group vibe very comfortable. Getting close to nature - after a week in the city - was perfect and I have now fallen in love with the southern highlands (the ranches, thermos and the red wines). Well worth the extra dough!

I had a wonderful and amazing full day tour with Steve! He drove us around suburbs to see where the locals are living, stopping by interesting spots and scenic routes. No quiet moments, he’s always sharing information during the drive and walks! Unless the entire bus fell asleep because of major food coma. He bought us to a local restaurant with great ocean view for lunch, food was excellent!

1-1 close up time with koala and unforgettable moments with kangaroos. Trekking up national park to beautiful scenery and managed to catch Long glimpse of lyrebirds singing away.

Steve is a really thoughtful guy and was kind to lend us fleece jacket when it gotten really cold. He got us back in Sydney on time and left us fond memories of Australia’s hospitality
