Overcrowded with long queues and stale sandwiches. Go for a bush walk. Hoping the grandchildren will get over this soon.

Breathtaking views. We took the train from Sydney and get off at Katoomba. We then took the double decker bus that takes you to different places at the Blue Mountains. We also bought the pass for Scenic World that has the cable car and the train. This is great for all ages but it's definitely pricey. We did everything in... More

Spent the day at Scenic World. Best advice is to get there early to avoid the crowds. The railway is an unbelievable experience that may frighten some people, but in my view is a must do experience (go from the bottom to the top if you think the steepness may worry you). The cable car rides are a great way... More

Daughter and family definitely plan to return. So much to do and has something for everyone. Stunning scenery, walks for all levels of fitness. Railway is very steep and lots of fun. Mining exhibits are great. Rain shortened the visit but the sculptures were breath-taking

In the beautiful Blue Mountains, there is a nice opportunity to ride a unique railroad down a steep descent. Although short in duration, it is nonetheless interesting. At the bottom, there are walkways around, with relic of the early mining days. Originally, the rail cars were used for mining. At the conclusion of the walk (several options to vary length),...

This is a fantastic place for a family day outing. It's best to arrive before 10am as they have an earlybird special. It's not by much but every little bit of saving counts. The other good thing with arriving early is you get to go on the rides without the long queues. There are only 3 short rides but they... More

Ok, so we all know that Australia is over priced but this gift shop was amazing! They had so many decent items for good prices and many items 40% off. Can't be beat! I really have to recommend you stop here for some souvenirs because it's the most reasonably priced place you will find. The cafe was also good and... More
