The Scenic Railway is a fun way to get down into the valley and walk around the forest along the boardwalk with out having to climb the stairs down which are nearby (you can catch the railway back up at a reduced price) but most people love the thrill of going down on the railway. updated -modern, clean & friendly....

It's a long time since I last went to the scenic railway at Katoomba. Back then, it was run down and amateurish. Now it's been rebuilt to be modern professional attraction that's great for tourists - both local tourists and overseas tourists. The entrance ticket gives you access to all the rides. My wife originally thought that it was overpriced... More

My partner & I visited here for a few hours in Winter. The last time we had been here was many years ago & we were impressed with the whole set-up. Parking is free in a carpark next door, buying tickets was efficient & quick. Signage was good. All attractions were easy to get to & the organisation of people... More

We went on all three rides catching the railway down then walking around an easy short boardwalk to the Cableway to go back up to the main entrance. The other ride takes you across the valley in a Cablecar and there are some walks around the stop on the other side. Fantastic views of the bush and ferns below.

Took 3 grand children for a day of learning to the Blue Mountains. Bought a Family Pass that included unlimited rides on all three attractions, great value. Everything has been upgraded.

I really enjoyed Scenic World, especially the railway, it was much steeper than I excepted. The Skyway & Cableway were also fun. I would definitely go again.

I last went 20 years ago, returning just recently. The Cable car, and Railway are new and you feel safe, though I think the olf Railway carriage (open not enclossd) was better. The new cable ride option is nice, staff informative. Views are excellent. Boardwalk down below is very good - though if you walk down on any of the... More

It was great to bring my daughters to Scenic World having loved it as a child. Very well run and excellent value for money - we easily filled a day riding the attractions and exploring on foot. The kids loved the scenic railway, but they also loved the boardwalk in the valley and looking for wildlife.
