The Blue Mountaineer

New date TBC

Join us as ECHR brings you a brand new tour, heading west on the Blue Mountaineer! Explore the winter delights of the mountains communities as we take you to Leura, Katoomba and Lithgow, hauled by diesel locomotives and featuring our beautifully restored and maintained carriages.

The Blue Mountaineer leaves Central and takes you through the west of Sydney across the Cumberland plain, before ascending the steep grades of the Blue Mountains.  Winding through the valleys and along the ridgelines, witness the spectacular sandstone escarpment and canyons, and the temperate forests within.

Make your choice of lunch venue at one of the magical towns we stop at and let us do the driving!
