Shift into high gear and venture outside the city limits for a four-wheeled feat like no other. The mountains and parks surrounding Sydney provide the perfect day trip, and there’s no better way for a true explorer to see them than from the back of a roaring quad bike.

Bike Through the Blue Mountains

If you’ve never seen the beautiful Blue Mountains, well, what are you waiting for? This eucalyptus-shrouded mountain oasis is so special, it’s even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Best of the Blue Mountains 4×4 Off-Road Tour with Lunch is an exhilarating way to explore one of Australia’s most legendary natural landmarks, 128 kilometres west of Sydney.

An impressive meal, including a cheese platter, will complement your sun-soaked day of exploration.
