We stayed in our campervan just walking distance away. We therefore got there before the tours arrive (about 10.30) which is worth doing unless you like crowds. The unlimited day ticket is worth it unless you are short of time in which case you can pay as you go In essence two trips are possible High level cable car across... More

We travelled up from Sydney via train (the Blue Mountain train line - quite a long trip with lots of stops on the way) then via the local bus (number 686 that does a quick Echo point/Scenic World/Katoomba falls loop - and that you can use your Opal card on, if you have one) and after all that travelling you...

Scenic world was our first stop in the blue mountains, we got an unlimited pass for the three lifts for around $34 each, which is very reasonable when compared with similar lifts in Europe. Despite being a bad weather day when we were there the steepest railway in the world was still a great experience, as we're the two cable... More

Worth the money for one or two adults, maybe a little expensive if you're a family taking a bunch of kids.

Had a good day here. The sky ride and the steepest train are defiantly worth the money. Take the train down to the rainforest and enjoy a walk round and take the sky ride back for a change. Lots to see and do.

Girl in reception was really helpful and gave us a map with walking route times. We decided to walk down to the valley stations - good views of Wentworth Falls and Three Sisters along the way. Just don't wear flip-flops likes we did! Then took steepest railway in the world back to the top - it lived up to its... More

Like previous reviews have stated, Scenic World gets overrun by tour buses like the rest of the Blue Mountains. I find Chinese tour groups in particular to be rather annoying and obnoxious on a whole, so if you can figure out when they're NOT there, that's the time to go! The entry fee to Scenic World is a little expensive... More
