BLUM1N 2D1N NEW SOUTH WALES 01 APR 2020 - 31 MAR 2021

Just two hours away from Sydney by train, the Greater Blue Mountains UNESCO World Heritage Area makes for a great day of adventure! Go on an exciting adventure up to the beautiful wilderness of Blue Mountains. Experience the best of Blue Mountains as you tour the area’s sightseeing spots with this fun hop-on-hop-off bus pass. See the best views of the park on a number of breathtaking rides and walkways, and conquer your fear of heights with a ride on the Scenic Railway, the steepest passenger railway in the world, and feel the thrill of a 52-degree incline.

Sydney - Blue Mountains ( 2hrs by train )

The most convenient and hassle free way to get to the Blue Mountains is via train. Trains depart Sydney Central Station every half hour until 9am, then every hour afterwards. It takes approximately 2 hours to Katoomba Railway Station (less than AUD10 each way).

You will need to purchase an Opal Card for your train journey. You can pick one up at Sydney's Central Station or one of the many Opal card retailers around Sydney. There is no charge for an Opal card, however the minimum value is AUD10 for an Adult Opal card.

The earlier you arrive in the Blue Mountains, the more time you will have to explore at your own pace and see more. Visit the Transport NSW website for train timetable. 
Trains depart from platforms at the Grand Concourse. Please check the screens for up-to-date info.
Grab a seat on the upper level, on left hand side, and you can enjoy views like no other.

Welcome to the Blue Mountains! When you get off the train, walk straight down the ramp and turn right following the "Blue Mountains Explorer Bus" signs. Collect your Explorer Bus Pass, free Guidebook and arrange your *luggage drop off service from Katoomba station to your hotel with reception staff.
The Explorer Bus Pass is a 1-day Pass, however if you are staying overnight you can extend the Pass up to 3 days at no extra cost! No need to book ahead, just ask at BM Explorer Bus office or one of the drivers.

Jump aboard and say "Hi" to your friendly Explorer Bus driver.
