Set in World Heritage listed national park, we offer a range of experiences found nowhere else on earth! 'Walk on air' in the Skyway suspended 270m above the valley with electro-sceniglass floor. Ride the steepest incline railway in the world, stroll along the 2.5km elevated Walkway through towering Jurassic rainforest, glide out of the valley aboard Australia's steepest cable car! All 90 minutes from Sydney in the beautiful Blue Mountains.

A Tourist Spot for Sure, but still nice.

Lots to do and lots to see, but expect to be swamped by tourists and you'll have to wait for the 3 rides. If you want some fresh air and relief from the tourists take the Skyway... read more

I was given a tip by a friend that this was not a place to avoid based on cost or overcrowding, so we gave it a go. It was about a one and a half hour drive from Parramatta. When we arrived at about 1:30pm on a Saturday we found free multilevel parking and parked on the top level. The... More

About two hours by bus from Sydney and you are there at this magnificent blue mountains. Take the scenic railway which at 52 degree incline is the steepest passenger train in the world. Walk on air on the skyway's glass floor as you glide between cliff tots above the Jamison Valley. The highest cable car in Australia at 270 meters... More

The Views of The Three Sisters was amazing at Eco Point. We enjoyed the rides at Scenic World especially the scenic Railway as it assent or decent almost vertically!. That ride was so exhilarating!. The staff at Scenic world are friendly and helpful. We got there noon arriving at Katoomba Station, after a two hours train from Central Sydney. Like... More

Apparently this is a privately run attraction. If that's the case then it's a terrific effort. Very professionally and efficiently run. Cost was $35.00 per person ($32.00 concession). This gives you access to all attractions - the Railway, Walkway, Skyway and Cableway - as often as you want. And, if you're early / lucky enough, free multi-storey parking. Plenty of... More

Worth battling the tourist bus crowds on a Saturday afternoon; it really is a good way to appreciate the magnitude of the area. Tips would include going on a weekday if possible, and/or buying your tickets on the internet before hand. And be prepared to queue! All up we got through all of it in about 1.5 hours, but you...

Felt we must visit scenic world and we weren't disappointed, Very busy even in Winter but didn't have to wait long for the cable cars and railway. I would imagine it would be very crowed in summer months. Plenty of walks with great views everywhere.

Visit to Sydney without a visit the scenic World is incomplete.Try the High speed train in the quiet carriage from Central Station to Katoomba and back.
