We brought some guests to Scenic World that have never been to the Blue Mountains before and they just loved it. It is reasonably priced and it made me proud to be from the Mountains. Great staff that couldn't do enough for you. A great day out.

We drive early from Sydney and lots of people already on the premises,got our tickets for $35 for all day i think is a great value for what is in offer. The new railway was a fantastic ride and the walking tracks are very good under the trees and ferns.

Taking our boys back to a place we used to visit when we were kids was amazing. The Scenic Train was our favorite, we rode it so many times. The walking track was great, the cable car was very scary for me but both of our boys loved every minute of the ride. Its a great place to learn about... More

For $35 you get an all day ticket on the funicular, skyway and cable car plus access to some beautiful walking tracks. This is a great day out, even if you have some physical disability. The distance between each of the three modes of transport is not great and the paths between them easy to access. The shop and eating... More

I took my Boyfriend here for his birthday and we both loved the experience. We arrived early and there were already a few people, we knew this was a popular tourist attraction so this didn't bother us. We did the three experiences and we loved them all. The railway was my favourite and i found it abit scary. We were... More

We travelled to Scenic World on the hop on-hop off bus and found it rather crowded but found a seat in the restaurant. The young lady in the restaurant was helpful and the scenery was great with a beautiful clear day.

A great experience, the views are amazing and the place very well kept. We spent a whole day at Scenic World, followed ALL the tracks, some of them more than once, and I cant remember how many times we rode the Skyway, the Railway or the Cableway. The day was not too good but still was really pretty and took... More

As a Sydneysider, I don't often visit local tourist attractions. However, I recently visited Scenic World while staying with friends who live in the Blue Mountains. This was my first visit to Scenic World in about 20 years. I was very impressed by the way the venue has been refurbished and improved. The railway, skyway and cableway were all fun.... More

Now recently upgraded railway, is now like a theme park ride. It's supposed to be a miners train into the valley floor. I understand the need for health & safety , but this seems to be Commercialism to the extreme. It's not cheap either $35 a head It was my 3rd visit, and my last. For me it's lost it's... More

I remember going here when I was younger, back in the days of non hightech cages ... the Train is fantastic and definitely worth the second ride (backwards is scarier than forwards, even from the front of the first carriage), the short walk to the Cableway was interesting (with 4 kids in tow) and the views from the Cableway are...
