BLUE MOUNTAINS LGBT+
STEAM TRAIN DAY TRIP
Sydney Pride Festival Event 2022
Acknowledgement of Country
The City of the Blue Mountains is located within the Country of the Dharug and Gundungurra peoples. We recognises that Dharug and Gundungurra Traditional Owners have a continuous and deep connection to their Country and that this is of great cultural significance to Aboriginal people, both locally and in the region.
For Dharug and Gundungurra People, Ngurra (Country) takes in everything within the physical, cultural and spiritual landscape - landforms, waters, air, trees, rocks, plants, animals, foods, medicines, minerals, stories and special places. It includes cultural practice, kinship, knowledge, songs, stories and art, as well as spiritual beings, and people: past, present and future.
We pay respect to Elders past and present while recognising the strength, capacity and resilience of past and present Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Blue Mountains region.
ALL ABOARD THE GUYSADVENTURESXPRESS FOR OUR
DAY TRIP TO THE BLUE MOUNTAINS!
The hills will be alive with the sound of music and mountain madness on our weekend of fun, frivolity and fabulousness with GuysAdventures this Winter!
We’ve charted a fabulous vintage steam locomotive with four amazing restored carriages bound for the Blue Mountains in the grandest of style. Spend a day in the campest of mountain capitals - Katoomba and surrounds, with all sorts of shenanigans available fit for a queen, king or princess!
If you haven’t experienced a GuysAdventures trip before, now is your chance.
Day 1 I SATURDAY 18 June 2022 – Early at the station guys and gals !
06.15am: Bright and early start this morning checking in at Sydney Central station for an on-time departure of 7am. Grab yourself a coffee (or something stronger) and some gorgeous nibbles prior to boarding.
07.00am: The GUYSADVENTURESXPRESS will depart bang on time so don’t be late! Don’t worry, in true GuysAdventures style we’ll have a very special team of ‘conductors’ headed up by none other than the fabulous Miss Joyce Maynge to help you board on time and settle into your comfy coach ! And of course there’ll be a little bit of ‘in flight silliness’ curated by Miss Maynge to enjoy along the way!
10.40am: Welcome to Katoomba the camp capital of the Blue Mountains!
You’re just in time to celebrate the Winter Solstice at the fabled Carrington Hotel. Their Old City Bank Bar & Brasserie is open from 12noon, or pop into Champagne Charlie’s Cocktail Bar, serving a special all-day menu from 11am. For the more energetic there’s oodles of bushwalking to be done (heels optional), or if you need to get high - ride a cable car. For truly royal treatment fit for a queen, chill out in a local day spa, or explore one of many local galleries. Whatever you decide, this Blue Mountains is all about you! Be cool, be fabulous!
3.55pm: Your GUYSADVENTURESXPRESS will depart from Katoomba railway station 3.55pm sharp. The fun isn’t over yet guys and gals – Paul Mac and Johnny Seymour will be DJ'ing onboard our private charter back to Sydney, so get your shoes and shawls ready, for our 7pm arrival.
