Blue Mountain Tours or self-guided?

Jump to last reply

We will only have 5 full days in Sydney and several days at the beginning will be very jet lagged. Should be dedicate one full day to a side trip to the Blue Mountains? To see the Blue Mountains, it doesn't sound difficult to hop on a train from Sydney to Leura or Katoomba. But what do we do next? Are buses sitting around waiting for passengers or do we need to set up a tour in advance? Is it possible to also stop at the Featherdale Wildlife center on the way to Katommba? I found a tour called www.visitours.com which seems to encorporate both for $83 au per person. The four of us have a strong adversion to large groups and would prefer to avoid being herded around but in this case, is it possible to combine Featherdale and the sights around Katoomba on our own in one day?
