The Blue Mountains Explorer Bus takes you to see all of the great sights the Blue Mountains has to offer.
The Blue Mountains Explorer Bus is part of Fantastic Aussie Tours, a proudly independent, family-owned business which has been based in the Blue Mountains since 1974. They run tours and holidays all around Australia and all over the world. Travel is in their blood, and they know what it takes to make their guests feel right at home.
Hop on and off at 29 stops in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area – with live commentary and personal service from friendly driver-guides. All on one amazing value ticket!
Like a tour, The Blue Mountains Explorer Bus takes you to all the most important viewpoints, waterfalls and tourist attractions. But instead of rushing you from one place to the next, they give you complete freedom to explore at your own pace.
The Explorer Bus drivers are friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable in the Blue Mountains. They won't just drive you around but tell you a story and know the Blue Mountains like the back of their hands and love to share their knowledge.
With buses running every 30 minutes, the Explorer Bus makes it easy to get to famous landmarks like the Three Sisters, Scenic World and Leura Cascades. They pick up at many of the best hotels and restaurants in Katoomba and Leura, and the big red buses are a welcome sight to weary walkers returning from hikes in the stunning Blue Mountains National Park.
The Blue Mountains has many magical experiences to delight children of all ages. There are parks and outdoor play equipment at many stops, cascades and puddles to jump in, the Leuralla Toy and Railway Museum, The Gingerbread House and Scenic World.
Meet the Stars - the Buses - the four beautiful big red buses that will carry you safely and smoothly on your adventure through the Blue Mountains.
KEDUMBA This is the Aboriginal name originally used for the local area, and it is believed that Katoomba is a corruption of the word Kedumba. Kedumba means tumbling waters, and is a fitting name for the bus that takes you to three waterfalls in the area – Katoomba Falls and Cascades, Leura Cascades and the Bridal Veil Fall, and Gordon Falls. It is also possible to walk to the nearby Wentworth Falls.
KOWMUNG The Kowmung is a wild and largely remote mountains stream which starts at the junction of The Hollanders and Tuglow River’s South of Oberon. The river carves a winding path through the Kanangra Boyd and Blue Mountains National Parks dropping from 900m above sea level to below 200m where it meets Cox’s River, in the restricted area around Lake Burragorang.
KANANGRA The Kanangra-Boyd National Park adjoins the Greater Southern Blue Mountains National Park and is an important wilderness park, forming an integral part of the The Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area that embraces over a million hectares of natural bushland extending from the Southern Highlands to the Hunter Valley. From Sydney’s back fence, wild escarpments rise westward to the crest of the Great Dividing Range and the farmlands of the Central Tablelands.
The World Heritage Area is made up of eight individual nature conservation reserves. These are Yengo, Wollemi, Gardens of Stone, Blue Mountains, Nattai, Kanangra-Boyd and Thirlmere Lakes national Parks together with the Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve.
KANIMBLAThe Kanimbla Valley is visible from Blackheath and as such is not really part of the Blue Mountains Explorer Circuit, but it forms an integral part of the southern valley systems that have been caused by the erosion of the Cox’s River catchment. It is an Aboriginal word stemming from the meaning of a “big fight” or “a fighting ground”.
