Tour Prices

Nature Trail’s tour prices are competitive and listed on a per guest basis in Australian Dollars.  GST tax is excluded since Nature Trail is not registered for GST.

These prices vary according to tour type, duration, focus, any extra features and provisions provided and vehicle tag-along option.

We always pre-quote the total tour price at the time of booking which is a fixed price, so there are no additional costs during or after the tour.

Tours that include 2, 3, 4 guests are charged the same tour price per guest when transferred in our 5 seat Range Rover tour vehicle.  An additional 5th and 6th guest transferred in a suitable tag-along vehicle by guests themselves each receive a tour price discount per guest of 30% accordingly.

Nature Trail is also flexible to accepting one solo tour guest on a given tour.  In this case our policy to ensure the tour be commercially viable, indicatively we charge a solo guest at a rate 1.5 times the standard price per guests numbering 2 to 4.

Guest Transfer Fees:

With prior arrangement at the time of booking, we offer an extra service to collect and return our guests to/from our Tour Meetup Location, typically Katoomba, from/to anywhere in the Upper Blue Mountains (between Wentworth Falls and Mount Victoria).

Our Guest Transfer Fees are set according to the dedicated time involved.  Fees are on the basis of each specific transfer location, not per guest per se.  So for instance, if there are four guests requesting transfer from one specific location in Leura to our Tour Meetup Location in Katoomba, the total transfer price is $10 for all four guests from their accommodation before the tour, then $10 for all four guests back to their accommodation after the tour.  A separate et

Guests may arrange for transfer pickup and drop off to any place of their choosing, not just at their accommodation, solong as the location is between Wentworth Falls and Mount Victoria, safe and accessible.

  • Medlow Bath  $10
  • Wentworth Falls  $15
  • Blackheath (central)  $15
  • Blackheath (outskirts)  $20
  • Mount Victoria  $25

Our Pricing is more reasonable than taxis fares.  And note that if the booked tour involves us travelling through one of the above locations, then our Guest Transfer Fee is a flat $5 per location, because we are not going much out of our way to collect/drop off.

Accommodation Bookings Service for 2-Day and Multi-Day Road Tours

Particular to our 2-Day Countryside Indulgences or our Multi-Day Deep Country Escapes, at the time of booking any of these extended tours, we invite guests to discuss with us your accommodation style preferences.

Nature Trail’s Tour Director, Steve and his wife, have over 20 years experience staying and then residing in the Blue Mountains Region and travelling and staying throughout the Central Tablelands westward.   We have stayed and got to know a variety of quality accommodation providers.  We shall be happy to recommend accommodation providers and to put our guests in touch directly with the owners directly.  We prefer to go direct rather than via online third parties.

We believe that to best complement the quality experience of our extended tours, that the choice of style and the quality of accommodation truly enhances the entire experience.   In addition, we shall be happy to recommend to any of our guests and to would-be guests, the requested style of quality accommodation in the Blue Mountains and the Central Tablelands.

Simply phone our Nature Trail Hotline:  1300 355 133

One of our recommendations is Rosebank Guesthouse and Art Gallery located in the historic colonial village of Millthorpe, particularly for those preferring old world charm and country hospitality.

Pricing Policy:

  • Prices are per Tour Guest:  Our tour prices are per tour guest, on the basis of a minimum per tour of 2 tour guests and a maximum of 4.   Our choice tour vehicle is our customed-fitted P38 Range Rover ‘Excalibur‘ designed for small group touring, including off road as required.  It comfortably seats 4 guests plus our Tour Director as tour leader and driver.  If the P38 is not available for any reason, we provide a suitable backup vehicle at a 20% discount.
  • Car Tag-Along Flexibility:  While our tour vehicle has capacity for up to 4 tour guests, we welcome an additional 2 tour guests to tag-along in their own car to join in our hiking tours.   For safety and National Parks protocol reasons, our hiking group numbers are restricted to a maximum of 6 tour guests under the guidance of our Tour Director.   For non-hiking tours we are more flexible and welcome up to an additional 6 tour guests to tag-along in their own car(s) to join in.  Such prior requests at the time of booking are mandatory.
  • Solo Guests:  We welcome solo guests on any of our tours, mindful that for any tour to be financially viable to us we charge an additional Solo Guest Premium.  This fee is based upon our dedicated time as follows:

    • Half Day Tour  (3-4 hours) Add $50
    • Full Day Tour  (4-7 hours)  Add $100
