Wonderful waterfalls

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. The choice is yours: see them all, or stay a while and cool off as you treat yourself to a secluded natural shower! Explore cascades and 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.

Vibrant Villages

Foodies love the Blue Mountains for our great restaurants, fresh produce, and local wines grown in pure clean air. With the Explorer Bus you can breeze around the sights and take a long, lazy lunch in the villages of Leura or Katoomba. No need to drive, nobody to rush you away from that extra glass! Discover great eats for every budget.
