Forget walking, Segway is the only way to go
Direct from the US, Segway Tours have commenced in the Blue Mts. Looking for something totally out of the normal in the Blue Mts? Head to Leura and have a go to Sydney, I just have to get up there now and have a go.
Some of us don't like walking, so while some walk the surrounds of Leura, others will be travelling on 2 wheels in incredible style. Experienced guides will take you on a variety of bush tracks and lookouts and you will a fantastic time enjoying the beautiful parks, tracks and views of the Leura and the Jamieson Valley of the Blue Mts.
Helmets are compulsory and minimum age is 9 years old. Operates 7 days a week and staff are always willing to have another spurt on the Segway and take you on a tour.
Cost: $65 for 1 hour and $89 for 1 1/2 hours. Well worth it when you consider the cost of a Segway is well over $10,000.
A must do: Parents can relax in the park grounds, while children are off on tours, or parents can join in too. I most certainly won't be missing out on this fun.
