Like the Sydney Harbour Cruise, part of the three attractions I visited using the iVenture Card was Blue Mountains. The explorer bus tour starts from Katoomba and allows you to hop on and off at your own leisure.
There are 29 attractions at Blue Mountains so you basically choose the ones that interest you and get off the bus. Buses go around the sightseeing tracks every 20 minutes or so – you get a bus schedule to allow you to plan your sightseeing around them.
I didn’t exactly do the entire Blue Mountains tour; just the Chocolate Factory, Echo Point and The Three Sisters. The weather was quite chilly to be outdoors let alone the mountains and all I wanted to do was curl up with a hot chocolate. It was exactly what I did. :D
While the hot chocolate wasn’t that great, it was perfect given how cold that morning was. rif’s chocolate milkshake was better but the weather was too cold for me to indulge.
Echo Point allows you a good view of The Three Sisters and the valley and because of that, it was one of the more crowded spots. If you’re feeling adventurous, rent a bike and cycle through the viewpoints. It’s definitely a different (and more challenging) way to experience the Blue Mountains. ;)
