Either it’s the massive Sydney Harbour Bridge or the famous Sydney Opera House, stop dreaming about it any longer, grab a soft helmet, tag a cotton towel to your trouser belt and get ready to thunder through the wind on the scenic roads of Sydney. The first question that comes to your mind is where to get a Harley? or which places to visit? No problem, local tourist guides & travel services have that covered for you, but you can’t travel every place in Sydney in one ride.

Harley tour Blue Mountains

Blue Mountains Harley and trike tour

The Harley tour Blue Mountains is a great way to see the famous Blue Mountains. Whether on a trike or Harley, it’s a wonderful area to explore on a motorcycle. The foothills are situated 50 kms west of Sydney CBD and it takes approximately 1 hour to ride to the base. Then it takes another hour to ride up the mountain to the main area of Katoomba. Here, in Katoomba is Echo Point, one of the best spots for viewing the area’s most famous rock formation – the Three Sisters (see photo above right.)

Often we meet our passengers half way up the mountain or at Katoomba Railway Station. If time is limited, that way they get to see the best bits, just not the freeway. We recommend two hours to get a good tour of the area. The Blue Mountains is only a small part of an extensive mountainous area associated with the 3,700 km long Great Dividing Range.

Megalong Valley

Megalong Valley is simply magic. While the view from the Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath is breathtaking, a drive down into the valley itself is an unforgettable experience. The natural beauty of the Megalong Valley allows any visitor to unwind. The Aboriginal word megalong means ‘valley below the cliffs’. The fabulous Cox’s River passes through the valley, and it is via this river in 1818, Thomas Jones was believed to be the first European visitor to the area. Thomas Jones ventured into the valley to explore its natural vegetation.

Echo Point

The Three Sisters is an iconic formation that you must see at least once in your lifetime. However, there are different versions of the Aboriginal story of the Three Sisters, but what you’re bound to agree with is how truly spectacular it is. The imposing Three Sisters is best seen from Echo Point lookout, just outside the national park, on the edge of the plateau. These three weathered sandstone peaks, formed thousands of years ago through erosion, are set among the cliffs of the Jamison Valley. From the lookout, you’ll be able to see the Ruined Castle and Mount Solitary.

Jamison Valley

The Jamison Valley makes up a part of the Coxs River system, a complex structure of canyons and valleys that sprawl out in NSW. The historic timeline of the Blue Mountains spans back 470 million years to be exact. The development of the region began when the entire land was immersed in seawater. With the earth’s plates slowly moving to create the continents we know today. During this time, the large sediments settled on the seafloor. Slowly compressing together to form sandstone and shale underwater rocks. Once the sea levels lowered, the large rocks appeared; with thousands of years of erosion and volcano eruptions shaping these mountains. Soon life developed, covering the area in rich greenery and unique Australian animals. Creating what we know today, as the green Jamison Valley. https://bluemountainstoursydney.com.au/attractions/jamison-valley/

These are just a couple of the places we can show you in the Blue Mountains area, west of Sydney. There is so much to see there and it really is beautiful. In conclusion, contact us to book or to ask any questions you may have. The Harley tour Blue Mountains really is a great way to see the famous Blue Mountains and Three Sisters.

Sunset on Sydney Harbour

Sunset on Sydney Harbour can be the most beautiful of sights – and sites.

A beautiful sunset on Sydney Harbour.

We cannot guarantee it looks like this if we take you on a tour around Sydney Harbour. However, it is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, if not #1. So, you will love the view no matter what time of day we take you. Mornings, lunch time, mid afternoons are all fabulous times to see the harbour as well.

Troll Tours knows some great areas around Sydney Harbour. Many places that even Sydneysiders don’t know about. Sydney Harbour is so beautiful it sells itself but, we know how to add value to your visit here.

Sydney Harbour is also called Port Jackson. It’s an inlet of the Pacific, 19 km / 12 miles long with a total area of 55 square km / 21 square miles, which is one of the world’s finest natural harbours. It has minimum and maximum depths of 30 feet (9 metres) and 155 feet at low water, and its irregular foreshores extend more than 150 miles, affording extensive docking facilities. Its principal wharves are near Sydney’s business district. https://www.britannica.com/place/Port-Jackson

What’s at the bottom of Sydney Harbour?

  • Large concrete blocks and steel poles from construction work
  • A variety of furniture items including tables and chairs
  • Dozens of shopping trolleys
  • Small pleasure boats that have broken free from moorings
  • Cars and motorbikes. They have also found what was thought to be
  • A brand new Toyota Landcruiser 4WD which was 50 metres from the wharf at White Bay which “…may have fallen off the back of a ship”
  • Possibly a Porsche or Audi sports car in 6.5m of water just a few metres from the edge of Pier One at Dawes Point, almost under the Harbour Bridge

It’s interesting to think about what’s under the water at sunset on Sydney Harbour!
