Less than two hours from Sydney, Scenic World is renowned for providing the ultimate Blue Mountains adventure - from native birdlife and fresh air, to breathtaking views of the World Heritage-listed region including the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Jamison Valley. Journey on the world's steepest incline railway, glide between clifftops on the glass-floored Skyway suspended 270 metres in the air, descend into the ancient Jamison Valley by Cableway, explore Jurassic rainforest along the 2.4 kilometres walkway - the longest boardwalk in the Southern Hemisphere. Make a day of it! Scenic World offers free all day parking and a choice of onsite dining options.

A terrific destination with happy staff that make the long wait bearable. The glass balustrade off the cafe area looks unsafe and doesn't look like it meets current safety codes and chairs and table placed near the handrail could be better placed considering the 7+m drop off.

Hi Derek M, Great to hear that enjoyed your Scenic World experience. We are always looking to further improve the safety of our guests so your feedback is greatly appreciated. The balustrade is made of laminated safety glass and complies with the code that was in place when it was constructed. The tables in the cafe are moved every day,... More

This is a great business here. A well oiled machine with staff that are friendly and knowledgeable. Pay $39 and have unlimited access to the skyway, cableway, railway, the boardwalk. I recommend that you get here early. We arrived just after 9am on Monday and it was nice. 2 hours later was getting a bit manic and noisy and crowded... More

We took the family to ScenicWorld on a Tuesday during school holidays and found if busy, but not crazy. With young kids I'd suggest getting there early to get a few things done before the lines lengthen.

Scenic World is a great place to visit as you get the opportunity to take the world's steepest railway which is the closest you'll safely get to a roller coaster. You can also take the sky cable car that crosses the ravine and offers uninterrupted sweeping views of the area. And then there is the more standard cable car to... More

Lovely half day spent here loved the cable car, train and skyway though the food we bought at the cafe wasn't really very nice. Really enjoyed the visit.

This is one of those nature parks that you will really should make an effort to visit. It does not require you to be "dressed for the occasion" i.e. proper rugged attire, and not necessarily needing a lot of walking effort if you don't wish to walk too much. The view of the park is simply awesome. Unfortunately for us,... More

We visited from Sydney and weren't disappointed. The service provided by all staff was exceptional, it really made the whole experience excellent value for money. The scenic railway is fabulous, and even if there is a bit of a line up, the staff make everything seem easy. It costs a bit to visit however it's excellent value and they handle... More

Went with AAT Kings from Sydney with John S, who did an excellent job taking us there and sharing the history of the places we passed. Scenic world is well organised with very friendly and informative young assistants who enhanced the experience of being on the railway, skyway and the cableway. Loved the railway - a thrilling experience! The walkways... More

Very easy to visit this place and go on the cable car. It might be best to go early to avoid the crowds. The three ' rides' are all fun and even the faint hearted could probably cope with them. Friendly attendants who gave plenty of information, too.

This is a well set up attraction that is well worth coming to. The cable cars were good, the walk at the bottom was pleasant and the (what seems like) almost vertical train ride was spectacular.
