Storytelling, Bringing
People and Places together

About Mountains Tales

My name is Sue Collins, I am a Leura Local who is proud to bring my love of the Blue Mountains to visitors. 

During the COVID lockdowns I took the opportunity to invest in my passion for Australian history with my two foundation tours, The Leura Story Walking Tour, and the Katoomba Story Walking Tour. This process has taught me to appreciate my village and how fortunate I am to call Leura home.

Mountains Tales has grown to offer coach commentary tours for a variety of groups coming to the Blue Mountains; whether conference and events, social groups, or educational tours, I draw on my previous work experience to deliver the best experience for my groups.

Having worked in Sydney in the corporate arena in Sales and HR, I understand what goes into a successful corporate getaway; time to chill, form connections, learn and have fun and laughter along the way.

My private Social Group Day Trips are always full of laughter, no matter how many times you have visited the Blue Mountains, there are many stories to learn and enjoy, making for a memorable daytrip.

My Educational Tours take me back to my childhood, as I learned the colonial stories of Sydney, and my family connection to our not-so distant past. Learning is achieved through storytelling and role play with the spectacular Blue Mountains as our classroom.

During my tours I share the stories of the Blue Mountains, and a little of myself. My love for community; as a SES volunteer I enjoy giving back to my community in times of need, I am the coordinator of ANZAC Day services in Leura and involved in both Leura and Blue Mountains heritage committees.

As a qualified adult educator, I know my guests will gain a better knowledge and understanding of the Blue Mountains. 

Join me on tour, and I’m sure you will fall in love with the Blue Mountains too.
