Came her New Years Day, could not believe how busy it was, GET HERE EARLY!!!! The place runs really professionally, has had a great up date, make sure you do all, but the railway is the best. Will come back to do some of the walks. They also sell great souvenirs and local produce.

If you are in Katoomba you have to visit Scenic World. For $35 you get unlimited rides on the Skyway, Cable Car and Scenic Railway, as well as having access to the Scenic Walkway. We caught the Railway down to the bottom of the valley and then did the long walk along the boardwalks through the rainforest. There’s lots of... More

This is one of those "must do" places, but you will question your sanity when you are queuing to get in, queuing to do each of the rides, and queuing at the cafeteria. For a family, it is an expensive day out. Family tickets (2A, 2C) are around $88, and this gives you entry and access to the three "rides",... More

The views are well worth the price of a ticket (which is not cheap). The rides were short but breathtaking. The train ride is very steep!! We spent about 1.5 hours there and weren't rushed. The walk through the trails was lovely and cool. There were plenty of benches along the way for taking a break if you have some... More

Beautiful views. I personally felt that all 3 rides were disappointingly short. But then again, you can go as many times as you like. You will probably spend 2 to 4 hours at the park. The rides themselves won't take up much time. There are 3 different trails you could take. The shortest is a 20 min walk. Along the... More

If you want to have a good view above and in the Blue Mountains - make sure you visit scenic world. Great panoramic photo opportunities from the different rides, great nature walks both long and short for everyone. Child friendly, although some of the walks might be challenging. Only negative would be the over priced cafe / bistro for snacks... More

The railway is the steepest in the world, but the rides feel really safe (even for someone who is terrified of heights). Must see the falls and the Three Sisters. The staff are all incredible friendly. Would definitely visit again!
