Staying at

Park Hyatt Sydney

Sunny and stylish, energetic and inviting, Sydney shines all year round. Ferries, yachts, jetboats and harbour cruises share the sparkling waters framed by the world famous white sails of the Opera House and coat hanger-like Harbour Bridge. The colonial sandstone warehouses of the lively Rocks district nestle at the foot of tall glass towers and contrast with the modernity of the neighbouring Darling Harbour.

Transfer from Sydney to the Blue Mountains

In the morning, you'll be collected from Park Hyatt Sydney by 4x4 vehicle and transferred to the Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa. The journey takes approximately three hours and en route, you'll have the opportunity to stop at a viewing point in Katoomba to see the famous Three Sisters rock formation - a collection of nine-hundred-metre-high sandstone cliffs nestled in Jamison Valley. Alternatively, perhaps stop for a light lunch at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, a 28-hectare public garden approximately 100 km west of Sydney, at Mount Tomah. The garden is heritage-listed and provides stunning views, of the blue-haze, over the Eucalyptus treetops.
