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.

Do it all, take the time and walk around the park, take all the transport both ways, it is completely different view each way ! Very reasonably priced, as well as for food and drink at the little cafe.

We stayed at a B&B in the area and took hikes nearby. Tramps are well marked with signs and trails are well maintained. Area has fogs occasionally and unfortunately our first night up, was one of those nights--very disorienting and impossible to read street signs. The views out of vista points are majestic.

Buy your Scenic World tix online to avoid waiting in the regular pay line when you arrive. We were there on a non-peak day and there was a long line b/c a tour bus just dropped off a group. The SW website will tell you which days are non-peak & peak days. I think peak days are days when school... More

I was a little sceptical of Scenic World at first, I was thinking another theme park, but I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived to the Scenic World undercover car park and it was FREE! We arrived at the Blue Mountains fairly early in the day so we got a park very close to the entrance. The wind was fairly cool... More

Totally did not expect that I would have the courage to get on the steepest passenger railway in the world, but the Scenic Railway did not disappoint. it was a truly unforgettable experience getting into glass carriages and hurtling in full speed downhill through tree-lined rainforest with views of the spectacular Jamison Valley. Even more thrilling than hurtling downwards is... More

So much to do. The railway, cable car and skyway give you a lot to choose from and the rainforest walk is lovely. Several places to eat and the views are amazing. The weather was good today and we had a clear view of the Three Sisters. The Skyway is fun but if you have an issue with heights some... More

Sorry. Look, the rides are cheesy. Stop the guy talking on the glass floor lift. The train is forgettable and the gondola we waited forever. Save yourself and just go to the lookouts.

My daughter and I visited and really enjoyed the skyway across the canyon . Where the views of the Blue Mountain area, The Katoomba Waterfal, The 3 sisters and the valley below was brilliant. For those concerned about standing on a glass bottomed car it's only the middle section that's glass. . We then walked along the mountain path to... More

If you're going to buy a single ride ticket, just buy the whole day pass. Unlimited rides, definitely worth it! The boardwalk path at the base is pretty boring, but the Underfalls walk is amazing! Take the Furber Steps track down, then take the Railway or Cableway back up. The Railway is great, you'll want to do it more than... More

This was our second visit to Scenic World in eight years. Great views of the Blue Mountains from the Skyway, Walkway, Railway and Cableway. Something for every member of the family. There are several casual dining options plus a large gift shop with local products.
