Top Scenic Drives Just Outside of Sydney
Posted on 26th May 2021 under Uncategorized
The Hunter Valley is known for being one of Sydney’s iconic destinations – full of wineries, restaurants, breathtaking landscapes and wildlife. If you were planning on spending on a couple nights away in this glorious wine country, we recommended taking the scenic route to get there. This scenic drive from Sydney to the Hunter Valley, also known as Tourist Drive 33, will take you through the some of the oldest wine regions in Australia. Taking the Calga exit on the M1, you’ll explore the Great North Road and drive through rural towns such as Peats Ridge, Wollombi and Cessnock. Whilst planning your winery tour, don’t forget to book your luxury vehicle and personal chauffeur through our website.
Bells Line of Road has to be one of the most picturesque drives you can possibly take whilst heading to the Blue Mountains. This beautiful path is now as UNESCO World Heritage Site to the west of Sydney. As you drive along, you are met with an abundance of plants and nurseries. Close by you’ll find carefully landscaped slopes of the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens which is a 28-hectare reserve and botanical research centre. After you journey, especially if you’re heading in from Sydney, we recommend stopping at one of the many Cafe’s that overlook the gardens. We can guarantee it will be well worth the stop! This location is becoming extremely popular for Wedding receptions and ceremonies so don’t forget to book your Limousine or luxury car with Get Chauffeured.
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park
The best thing about living in Sydney, Australia is that you don’t have to travel very far out of the city to find beautiful, quiet and scenic parks that make you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Only 25kms north of Sydney CBD, Ku-ring-gai National Park combines important history with scenic beauty. This national park holds many exceptional sites including Indigenous artworks Aboriginal ochre rock paintings which were created by the Garrigal people of this area over hundreds of years. Heading deeper into the park you’ll head through Banksias and Red Gums and will eventually reach the remote loop and top of the peninsula which is where Pittwater and Barrenjoey Head meet.
Wisemans Ferry is a must-see destination, particularly in Autumn as it makes a perfect day trip for families offering you plenty to explore. In less than an hour out of Sydney, you are surrounded by National Parks, beautiful water views of the Hawkesbury River and the sandstone escarpments of the area. We highly recommend organising a chauffeur for the day to take you on a tour through Wisemans Ferry and St Albans. On our way into the town, we can make a stop at Hawkins Lookout just outside the centre of the city.
