The Scenic World at Blue Mountains offers the breathtaking views of the World Heritage listed region including the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Jamison Valley. The most specatular is the journey on the world's steepest incline railway, the glass-floored Skyway suspended 270 metres in the air and the longest boardwalk in the Southern Hemisphere.

Go early as the coaches arrive from Sydney around 11 am and it can get quite busy, but the staff move through the volumes of people quite well. We had the Skyway to ourselves at 9:15 am!! Wear sensible walking shoes and gear, take at least water and a snack. Another bonus of being early is to keep an eye... More

So much fun. We bought the package of all 3 transportations. The giant staircase was closed. Road the train down to a board walk trail. At the time there was a sculptor exhibit to enjoy. The ride down is steep but you do not feel like you do on a roller coaster. Took the chairlift up and the cable car... More

Located near Katoomba, this is a must visit attraction for tourist who haven't visited Blue Mountains before. It provides entertainment for the whole family. Adults would find the rides relaxing, the cableway, skyway and railway, while kids will find all these rides exciting. At the bottom of the railway/ cableway station, there is actually pavements where children and adults can... More

This is a good option if you want to see alot of stuff quickly, but I found it quite overwhelming, noisy and crowded. The loud playing of the theme song to Raiders of the Lost Ark when the train was descending was just completely over the top and unnecessary. However, the views were magnificent, and the boardwalk was very nice... More

We booked a day pass and we enjoyed the skyway and cableway. We never got to the train. We had limited time and choose to hike down the furber steps to the rain forest and rode the cableway back up to the top. It was nice to have that option.

My friends and mum visited scenic world last Sunday. Unfortunately mum had a slip at the bottom of the railway and did a really good sprain of her ankle. The staff were fantastic especially Jeni who gave us access to the medical room and went above and beyond to make Mum comfertable. The attraction itself was great make sure you... More

A great place with great view, scenic world is best enjoyed leisurely at your own pace. There's a lot to enjoy here if you like nature and the weather is usually windy. It's also quite chilly now so remember to bring a good windbreaker. Do take a copy of the guide the first thing when you arrive to help you... More

I have been all over the world, and Sydney is, in my opinion, the best city I've been to. So if you only have a few days in Sydney, I recommend staying in the city (and Bondi and Manly) and exploring. But if you have a few extra days, a trip to the Blue Mountains will be well worth your... More
