Day Trips From Sydney This Winter

Day Trips From Sydney This Winter


Winter in Australia is not at all like the winter in the Northern Hemisphere.  It is still warm in most parts of the country, and the least temperature during winter is 10oC.  As such, taking road trips in Australia during winter is suitable.  Here are two day-trips that you can make from Sydney this winter;

1.     All inclusive full-day Blue Mountains Trip from Sydney

The rugged Blue Mountains region, located approximately 50 km North West of Sydney, is known for its dramatic scenery of steep cliffs, eucalyptus forests and waterfalls.  This day trip of approximately 10 hours costs AUS $ 128.29, and covers the following features;

ii.    Echo Point Lookout for the “Three Sisters”

Admire the iconic “Three Sisters”, an astonishing natural rock formation from the vantage point of Echo Point and explore the age-old tales surrounding this rock.  This rock formation is named such, as a result of the Aboriginal legend of three sisters turning into stone.
