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.

Went down to the valley floor on the scenic railway. An awesome experience because it is so steep and so far down. Then walked along the board walk to the Skyway and rode up to the top. Another great experience as we saw all of the rocks, vegetation etc. Then went on the Cable Way - going across on right... More

It is fantastic to have an attraction that makes getting into the valley floor of the world heritage national park so easy. Yes, it's a huge tourist trap but the thrill dropping into the valley on the railway still excites as it did when I was a child. It's nice the see they are investing into the attraction. The variable... More

Popped in here on a Saturday afternoon on our second trip up to the blue mountains with a couple of friends. It was a lovely way to see some stunning scenery. We paid for the whole discovery ticket to go on all three of the "rides", I think you can get individual tickets but at $39 it seemed reasonable. Went... More

Enjoyed all the different rides - skyway, cable and rail tram, the latter like a theme-park ride which was a bonus!

We were lucky enough to have a tour of Scenic World with Eric Jenkins and it was incredible. I hadn't visited Scenic World for more than 15 years and was amazed at how it's been transformed and how much there is to see. From the scenic railway to the skyway and the cableway (which was new to me), it offers... More

This is a fantastic day out. A fabulously steep train and two cable cars plus a couple of bush walks make it a lot to do and see, with fabulous views of the 3 Sisters and Blue Mountains. Adults and teenagers all enjoyed this and it's well worth a visit.

I went to Scenic World during weekday, not very crowded. Well managed national park with friendly staffs. I only spend 2 hours here, which is not enough to experience this beautiful nature park. I strongly recommend those interested in this park to allocate more time here. Only set back is lack of toilet in the park, which is a bit... More

Scenic World has evolved over the years into a world class attraction. The recent renovations and upgrades have elevated it. For a fairly reasonable price (given that it gives you unlimited rides for the day) it is a fantastic experience for all visitors, young and old. Recommend that if you can, get there early as queues can be lengthy. We... More

The park is a little expensive but worth it. Go early though! Can't say that enough, I was there mid week in winter and by 12pm there was over 30 minute wait for the train. For general entry ($39) you get unlimited access to the 3 rides- cable car, train, skyway. The sky way is very fast but you get... More

I took my parents, brother, wife and son on a day trip to the blue mountains. I hadn't been there since I was a child some 30 years ago. It's a timeless classic that has been modernised to meet the modern travellers needs. When you arrive you have free parking which immediately sets your mind that your not being nickel... More
