Let the sound of running water refresh your soul at one of the countless beautiful cascades or waterfalls. 15 buses a day take you to some of our most spectacular waterfalls.

Walk into the wild
Come to the Blue Mountains for the best choice of short bushwalks in Australia. With more than 12 of our stops located close to fantastic walks, the Explorer Bus is your key to a bush adventure that can last half an hour or half a day. Find a bushwalk to suit your level of fitness.

Discover great eats for every budget.
