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.

Is much better if you by car, but anyway when you arrive there by train you can catch the bus 686 which takes you close to the Three sisters mains walks. We went walking and is around 20 minuts walking, not too bad. By train is cheaper if you go on sunday, coz it cost you just 2,50$ the rest... More

This is a great attraction, but, there if you are an Aussie and have access to the Blue Mountains it is very touristy. Great views and access to some achievable walks. Expensive however - close to $50 per person.

I'd like to specifically mention Eric the cable way driver, who was an excellent host and representative of the park. He was friendly, funny, encouraging, and made the experience of the cable way a really great experience for me and especially my daughter who got to welcome everybody over the intercom - the whole cabin was energised and into it....

We always take our family and friends here as its the most spectacular place to visit and show off this amazing country! The all inclusive ticket you purchase includes the railway, cableway and skyway. Definitely go on the railway first and go down to the front and wait for the first row! Then walks will take about 30-1hour depending on... More

The train and gondola are worth the trip and money, especially if you are unable to climb the giant staircase. The scenic boardwalk would be good to do with kids and the little mining history was good but not a walk as such. Can deviate and walk to Laura or as far as you like and return to catch the... More

This is a very well arranged natural park allowing great view of the Blue Mountains whichh are a bit like the Grand Canyon with trees. The boardwalk through the rain forest is fantastic, we were very lucky to manage to get away from the large organised parties and see the forest in near silence.

The view from the skyway was awesome. Then we took the train, quite exhilirating, especially when the train go through the pitch black tunnel. Then walk the nature trail and then took the cable car up to the centre. The walk was informative and the forest was so calm and peaceful

Well operated, ever friendly staff and three huge attractions that are unlike anything else in the world. With the exception of the tacky Indiana Jones music, there's nothing tacky or otherwise that takes away from the natural beauty of the national park, and it's worth doing all three experiences to really take it all in. Get there early on weekends... More

You get some great views on the various rides - the train ride is excellent. Only minor con is the price - especially when only ticket option includes all three rides even if you just want to do two.

Really enjoyed my visit here which as a Sydneysider, surprised me. I hadn't been here since I was a kid & rode the original train down to the bottom. We got there mid morning on a week day and had no issues with lines at all. It is expensive- $38 pp for the "rides" Commentary & history were good. Walks... More
