Tour the Countryside by Minibus or Private Coach
Sydney is a coastal city surrounded by the majestic Blue Mountains, and the rolling hills of wine country. With it’s proximity to so much wildlife and heritage protected areas there are literally endless possibilities for day tours within a two hours drive of the CBD. When you need to escape the city and get out into the countryside the most relaxing way to do it is by private coach or minibus. Depending on the size of your group we will assist you in selecting the right size coach for your group.
We have outlined a number of options for making a trip into the country from visiting wineries, playing a round of golf, getting a massage in the tranquil surroundings of the Blue Mountains, enjoying High Tea and browsing the largest teapot collection in the world, or simply stopping at scenic lookout points throughout the Blue Mountains. If you need to relax and unwind we suggest taking a tour of the countryside.
Countryside tours are great for Sydneysiders who want to show off the wonderful sites that surround Sydney to visiting guests. Corporate team building events for teams that work in high stress environments having the chance to unwind and relax can strengthen bonds among even very high performing teams. Social groups, school groups, and individuals just looking for something relaxing to do.
Winery Minibus Tour
Right out the back door of Sydney is wine country. With vineyards high up in the Blue Mountains providing a long, cool season for growing, while coastal wineries provide a very long growing season, ideal for Pinot Grigio and some sparkling varietals. We have been to many wineries in the surrounding area and we have five great recommendations for wine tastings and tours.
Countryside Golf Tour
For the ultimate in countryside golfing we have to recommend Blackheath Golf Club. Blackheath is the highest most beautiful course in all of the Blue Mountains. Enjoy the drive up in your private minibus. Watch the blue mist coming off the gum trees as you head higher and higher into the mountains on your way to the highest course in NSW.
This course is challenging for the serious player and quite beautiful for the social player. It is part of the Blue Mountains’ rhododendron village and the flowering trees can be seen all over with blossoms every color of the rainbow.
If you are unable to take a whole day dedicated to golf we have four courses within a 10 – 20 minute drive of the CBD that we recommend.
Bygone Beauty’s High Tea Day Tour
For a unique tour a bit on the eccentric side we have our High Tea Day Tour. Visit Bygone Beautys. Home to the largest tea pot collection in the world. You can learn the difference between high tea and low tea, and you can enjoy tea service by selecting your favourite teas from around the world. Choose from Traditional Tea for Two, or Devonshire Tea. All tea is served in china with real silver pouring service.
Blue Mountains Sightseeing Tour
The Blue Mountains get their name from the mist rising from the sap of the blue gum trees. Driving through the mountains there are many scenic lookout points and trails to take along the way. The fitness level of the group will determine the best places for your group to stop. We have tours geared toward seniors where the stops are at lookout points only, and we have tours available for more rigorous hiking and walking along the way. Let us know how many in your group and what you are looking for and we will help you design the perfect tour of the Blue Mountains that will fit the goals of your group.

Taking a trip into the countryside is designed to relax your mind. Feel yourself unwind as you ascend into the Blue Mountains on your way to Lilianfels Day Spa. Let the tranquil surroundings relax your mind while the expert massage therapists work to relax and rejuvenate your body.

After your spa treatments are complete we recommend having lunch in the garden so that you can linger and enjoy the therapeutic effect of the mountains surrounding you.
Hunter Valley Tour
The Hunter Valley draws over 2.5 million visitors annually. The reason visitors flock to the Hunter Valley is it’s breathtaking beauty and variety of activities that can not be done while in the city.
While visiting Hunter Valley you can ride in a Hot Air Balloon. Get a birdseye view of the valley that many people may never have the opportunity to do. This is an amazing opportunity for photos for any level of photographer.
Explore 25 acres of lush gardens at the Hunter Valley Gardens and Village, or for a sweet treat pay a visit to the Hunter Valley Chocolate Company.
Getting out into the countryside is a great way to unwind and relieve the stresses from everyday life in the city.
