Having not visited the beautiful 3 sisters for just over 10 years I was pleasantly surprised to find this stunning addition to the experience. $35 is terrific value for an all day pass and the views from each cable car or train are unique as is the vertical experience of the steepest railway !!! The staff were all brilliant and... More

Came here today with my partner, had a great time! Queues weren't too long and it was a very enjoyable day! Cafe was a bit of a wait and the little restaurant was closed so we had to wait to eat somewhere else. Other than that it was fantastic and will visit again shortly!

Great views, good walks and a few thrills make this attraction well worth a visit. Arrive early if not travelling as a group as the invasion of busses starts at about 11.30 in the morning.

We had a great time here. You pay for all three rides with your admission ticket. Some reviewers have complained about this but we thought it was terrific value. We went early and practically had the place to ourselves so used the rides lots of times especially the train. We also did the walk at the bottom and saw lots... More

Came her New Years Day, could not believe how busy it was, GET HERE EARLY!!!! The place runs really professionally, has had a great up date, make sure you do all, but the railway is the best. Will come back to do some of the walks. They also sell great souvenirs and local produce.

If you are in Katoomba you have to visit Scenic World. For $35 you get unlimited rides on the Skyway, Cable Car and Scenic Railway, as well as having access to the Scenic Walkway. We caught the Railway down to the bottom of the valley and then did the long walk along the boardwalks through the rainforest. There’s lots of... More

This is one of those "must do" places, but you will question your sanity when you are queuing to get in, queuing to do each of the rides, and queuing at the cafeteria. For a family, it is an expensive day out. Family tickets (2A, 2C) are around $88, and this gives you entry and access to the three "rides",... More

Thank you taking the time to provide such a comprehensive review. Please note that the family pass entitles 2 adults and up to 5 children unlimited rides on the day of purchase which is very generous compared to a lot of attractions. I sincerely hope you had a great day and that you will visit us again in the near... More

The views are well worth the price of a ticket (which is not cheap). The rides were short but breathtaking. The train ride is very steep!! We spent about 1.5 hours there and weren't rushed. The walk through the trails was lovely and cool. There were plenty of benches along the way for taking a break if you have some... More

Beautiful views. I personally felt that all 3 rides were disappointingly short. But then again, you can go as many times as you like. You will probably spend 2 to 4 hours at the park. The rides themselves won't take up much time. There are 3 different trails you could take. The shortest is a 20 min walk. Along the... More
