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.

We booked the tour online and it's easy to go to from the Katoomba train station. Staff are friendly and the bus driver is multi-linguistic! Unfortunately the weather is too foggy to see anything, definitely try again next time.

A great tourist attraction, but we went with restricted time frame so could not do the complete walk. We just wanted to do the train or skyway but tickets at $35 or so are for the skyway, train, funicular and walk in the valley.

We arrived a couple of minutes after Scenic World opened and a large group was already arriving. Fortunately this did not prove a problem and we managed to use the Skyway, Cableway, and Railway twice without having to queue at all. When we left at noon queues were starting to build so we'd recommend making an early start to get... More

We've never done a "world" before and felt we had to do this one as it was in the mountains with such great scenery. So pleased we did as the views from the rides were fabulous. The ability to go out and come back again on the 1 ticket meant we were able to come back later in the afternoon... More

Pleasantly surprised to find one price covered all 3 rides. Scenic Railway, Scenic Skyway and Scenic Cable Way. World class views. It was up to you how you organised your day. For families nearly whole day entertainment. Range of souvenirs good as was food available at reasonable cost.

A lot of tourist come here and for good reason. They have a walkway that goes through a rainforest; they have a skyway tram that takes you to the bottom of the Jamison Valley.

This place has it all for a family. To start with, I was very pleased to find the parking was free...the local council could learn from this instead of the extortionate rates they charge at Echo Point. Entry to Scenic World is not expensive. $35 adults, $88 for a family of two adults and up to five kids below 13... More

Scenic World was fun. First of all, the scenery of the Blue Mountains is amazing. You need to check out the Three Sisters and walk across the little walking bridge. The ride on the cable car, the railway and the ski lift were all fun and a little scary, but you still need to go for it. The walks through... More

We enjoyed our day at Scenic World. We went on all the rides twice and did the walks in the valley. The scenery was spectacular fro above, and the forest interesting to walk round. The train ride is especially good with its unbelievable gradient. We were t the very front once staring down what seemed a vertical drop. Very good... More
