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.

I did a solo adventure from Sydney CBD to Scenic World using the public transport because I think that the adventure tours provided by the tourist agents are all rip-off. I took the Blue Mountains Train Line from Central Station (7:23 am), arrived at Katoomba Station (9:15 am) and paid $3.25 using Opal card (one way). At Katoomba Station, there... More

Avoid the busloads of tourists even midweek. Take a beautiful bushwalk in nature. Disappointed with tv filming blocking access to cable car and having to pay 78 bucks for poor service..

The scenic view should be one of the must see destinations. The cable car ride and the breath taking views are one of the highlights.

Obviously the scenery here speaks for itself, it's simply stunning. The various "rides" and walks help to make the best of what nature is offering, especially if like me you don't know the area and are seeing for the first time. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We spent the whole day there and could easily have stayed for... More

The valley and falls are spectacular, and the Scenic world cable cars and railway help you get the best viewpoints before you explore on the walkways on the forest floor. The staff are exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining, and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They put a lot of effort into making sure you have... More

Went to scenic world to view the Three Sisters. We used the cable cars (one with a glass bottom, not to be missed) and the very steep rail track. It is definitely worth a visit, not just for the views but also the information about the wildlife, plants and history of local towns and mining. It is reasonable and somewhere... More

It's the one of the best way to enjoy three sister's view and explore the katoomba falls. It's $35 each adult and you'll get unlimited access to rails. My recommendation is don't waste too much times on them and go down to jump into the jungle cuz last Service is at 5pm to get back. And full journey takes an... More

Skyway Gondola After queuing for half an hour in a freezing wind we found ourselves at the non closed in end of the gondola and froze as we faced across the gully. It was all over in seconds. It would have been preferable to have walked around the gully track – given the waiting time it would only have been... More
