Scenic world is well organized and laid out to give visitors lots of viewing platform options. The paths are smooth and even, although some include stairs of varying height and quality. The sculpture exhibit on the valley floor was interesting and well worth a visit.

Pricey experience for the family... but worth a walk out onto the viewing plateforms when you walk through the whole venue and up to the top floor cafe. The three sisters and blue mountains landscape are stunning.

Unless there is a discount offered to purchase tickets on-line, I do not recommend you to pre-purchase them. Purchase them when you are there. Also, my strong recommendation is that you arrive before 10 am if you can. You... More
