Blue Mountains Explorer Bus

Blue Mountains Explorer Bus

October 24, 2019

In this episode, I speak with Jason Cronshaw about the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus service.

About: "We created the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus to fix everything that’s wrong with the standard Blue Mountains day tours.

Like a tour, we take you to all the most important viewpoints, waterfalls and tourist attractions. But instead of rushing you from one place to the next, we give you complete freedom to explore at your own pace.

With buses running every 30 minutes, the Explorer Bus makes it easy to get to famous landmarks like the Three Sisters, Scenic World and Leura Cascades. We pick up at many of the best hotels and restaurants in Katoomba and Leura, and our big red buses are a welcome sight to weary walkers returning from hikes in the stunning Blue Mountains National Park."

"I'm so confident that we provide the best possible way to see the Blue Mountains that I personally guarantee it. If for any reason you don't feel we've given you a fun, convenient, informative and great-value experience, you can write to me and I'll make things right for you.
Jason Cronshaw, Managing Director"
