Owner description: 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.

“A must for a quick view of the Blue Mountains area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

Just an hour and a half for Sydney you can experience the beauty of the Blue mountain experience. They are not blue or high, just 1000m above sea level but the eucalyptus oil droplets in the air disperse the blue light of the spectrum and looks lovely. The cable car is great we is the funicular and the rain forest.

“Scenic views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

A great family adventure. Four options for viewing the blue mountains ranges on the one ticket. The train shuttle down the mountain is a great thrill with 3 options of seat tilt. The skyway across the gorge takes in views of the 3 sisters and the waterfall. The cable car option instead of taking the return train ride is worth the short trip and the boardwalk taking in the forest is an easy walk. The only drawback is lining with lengthy waits for each option. The better the day's weather, the longer the wait! And the cost is high when you only complete one of each option due to the time waiting in lines. But for the average tourist this should be on your list of to do's

“This place has improved so much over the years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This place has become a world class facility. With the new Scenic railway in place, the whole experience has gone from great to wow. The decent into the valley is breath taking and once down in the valley, the well established walks lets the traveller experience the Australian bush in a comfortable environment
