Adventures Await in the
Blue Mountains & Beyond ...
Outback tour host SALLY BRAY writes about the great things to see and experience on a Blue Mountains adventure tour ...
Adventure Tours come in many varieties around the world today. There’s something for everyone and Aussie Farmstay and Bush Adventures is a tour company providing Australian Adventures you’ll never forget. Passengers experience explorations, activities, discoveries and journeys back in time as they are shown around the mountains and the bush west of Sydney, NSW.
One of the newest styles of adventure tour is a 'cultural adventure', where travellers get to experience a culture different to their own. On an Australian farmstay and bush adventure you will be immersed into the rural culture of bygone times on a farm in Inglevale near Eugowra, NSW. Owners Bill and Mary bought the farm from Bill’s father Wilf and it’s been in the family for 55 years. But in all that time cultivation has been carried out only with draught horses which Wilf breeds.
On the farm, farming practices are displayed, entertainment of animal performances, whip cracking, bush ballads and poetry is provided. A campfire and BBQ cooked meal is shared with the farm’s extended family and provides an opportunity for passengers to really get to know the locals, a must for a cultural adventure.
'Nature adventures' allow people to get in touch with the natural world and discover aspects of the nature of an area. On an Aussie Farmstay and Bush Adventure there are many opportunities for nature lovers to connect with Australia’s natural environment including the Flora, Fauna and Geology of Central West NSW. No tour passes without seeing a variety of native Australian birds, mammals and reptiles in the wild, and a chance to see these animals up close is also provided on a visit to a wildlife park.
The World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park is one of Australia’s preeminent regions of natural beauty. On an Aussie Farmstay and Bush Adventures tour travellers spend an entire day in the Blue Mountains hiking, riding, exploring and discovering the forests and history. Stunning views into valleys showcase cliffs and waterfalls and a ride on the world’s steepest railway takes visitors deep to the floor of a valley to be explored. A walk through the bush is rewarded with seldo- seen ancient Aboriginal rock art.
Deep Beneath the Bush
Abercrombie Caves are one of New South Wales’ little known natural wonders. With Aussie Farmstay and Bush Adventures a tour of the caves will reveal the Grand Archway which is the biggest cave arch in the Southern Hemisphere. The subterranean limestone caves contain stunning formations highlighted by spectacular lighting which have attracted visitors for over 100 years. But because of the cave’s remote location it is rarely visited by tourists and its natural surroundings of beauty and peacefulness have remained pristine.
Horse riding and hiking adventures are popular with people wanting some action in their holiday. On an Aussie Farmstay and Bush Adventure there is the opportunity to ride a horse through the farmlands and bush of the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains. The riding operators used can provide horses to suit everyone from those who have ridden all their lives to those who have never been on a horse. Riders are thrilled by what can be seen from the back of a horse including peaceful streams, pastures and woodlands and animals in the wild, including kangaroos, wombats and eagles, which are less wary of people on horse back than in a vehicle. But horse riding isn’t for everyone, so bush walking is an alternative which provides just as many opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the Megalong Valley.
No adventure tour would be complete without discovery of things new and different. Aussie Farmstay and Bush Adventures provides ample opportunity for learning. Whether it is at a fossil museum to unearth the distant past, at the wildlife park to find out about Australia’s unique animals, in the bush to discover Australia’s distinctive plants and trees, or on the timeless Inglevale farm to see Australia’s rural culture, travellers are guaranteed to know more at the end of a tour than they did before.
