We went on a tour so only had 1.5 hours here. I would recommend a good 2-3 hours to thoroughly enjoy it. It is part of a free park system, but what you are paying for is the trip down into the valley to see the park blue mountains from a different angle. The skyway has a glass bottom: it... More

A good day at a very well organised Scenic world . We went on the skyway first then hiked down to the train station . Very nice and relaxing hike. We enjoyed the train up so much we went back down to experience the ride and came back up on the cable car. The train experience is very different in... More

Make sure you arrive early (before 10am) to Scenic World to take advantage of the free undercover parking and so the lines aren't too long. We had to stand in lines for all the three lines but it is great that the ticket buys unlimited rides across the three options (cableway, raileay and skyway). We visited on Australia Day weekend...

View was lovely and the staff kept the dining room clean. Limited choice of food but the flathead and chips were tasty and the price was better than average for a tourist site.

We arrived a little later in the day so had to cram all the rides in. Impressive rides! The service was great, and the staff were really friendly. The views and the scenery are absolutely spectacular. We loved every minute of our visit.

We visited late in the afternoon and there were people everywhere ! The staff were very friendly and east to deal with and suggested the best way to experience everything. We couldnt hear the tour guides over the other visitors unfortunately. It would be good if they could advise the other visitors to not push and be mindful of others,... More

Well worth the money, the walks were all very well sign posted and the rain forest was just amazing. The railway, cable car and sky train were fantastic & you could go on as many times as you wanted to save you walking up.

This place is so busy that you pay for "unlimited rides" but are lucky to get through all them only once in 4 hrs. The lines are long & unorganized-tour group operators are cutting in front of everyone else-the nature walks use the same trails as the waiting lines so people have to break through to continue the walks. Seems... More
