Very well organised and updated. Railway down was great, then cableway up after a lovely walk through bush land on boardwalk. Hopped on the other cable car to go across the valley and back. Whole thing exceeded expectations.

The idea of Scenic World is great - the Skyway, Cableway and Railway are great ways to view the scenery. The Railway in particular is quite fun cause you can adjust the angle of your seat to cliffhanger mode. That said, the whole experience is $35 per adult and you can easily view the scenery without having to go on... More

The day we visited it was not exactly empty but not overcrowded either. We liked the rides, especially the very steep train down the hill. While it is kind of expensive, you are allowed to ride the rides as many times as you wish when you get the unlimited ticket. The only thing preventing this might be long long queues,... More

This is the place to visit if you want to experience the majestic Blue Mountains view in one day. For a one-day pass, you take the Skyway, Railway and Cableway for unlimited times. We traveled with two young kids, we can't do any bush walking. Hence, these rides made up for it. We took the rides at least 3 times... More

I'm afraid I found the rides a bit pedestrian. Having skied in the French, Swiss, Italian and Austrian Alps for many years I found the cable cars and railway were totally underwhelming. The European cable cars and funiculars are just on a different scale but are just regarded as transport to the pistes. The views were spectacular but I've seen... More

Wow wow wow Amazing views & beautiful walks. The train, cable & skyrail were awesome. Was worried about the heights but it wasn't scary at all. Great value for the family for the day.

Our motel owner correctly advised an early 9am arrival a Scenic World to take advantage of the school holiday early bird rates and to beat the hoards of tourist buses arriving several hours later. We took a nice walk to Scenic World from Echo Point along the road and were soon traversing past Katoomba Falls 270 meters above the valley... More

This is a great way to see the Blue a Mountains and The Three Sisters. The train ride is steep but not scary and is very quick. Part of the attraction involves walking thru the rain forest.

This has been one of my best experiences in Katoomba. The railway is the steepest inclined railway in the world plus cableway and skyway. We bought the unlimited pass but had to wait in a long queue (I guess we chose the wrong day). There are some food outlets here too. The inclined railway is the best out of the... More
