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.

Wasnt intending to visit here at all, just drove in for a stickybeak, and couldnt not do it. Didnt have excess time, so rushed to ride every thing a couple of times, as well as walk to and from the three sisters via the giants staircase. Brilliant day!!!!

Having not been for many years - since becoming Scenic World the crowds were very off putting. I did enjoy the boardwalk at the bottom of the Scenic Railway to the Cableway to get back to the top. .The amount of people jammed onto the Skyway and Cableway meant unless you were near a viewing window it was very difficult...

This is one of the best organised attractions I have ever seen. With incredible trains to take you down to the rainforest and a Skyway to take you back up, a carefully placed and maintained walkway, excellent signage and a Cable Car Gondola across the gorge, you can see a huge variety of natural wonders in a very short time....

Yes, there's rides, but it's not a theme park. Take your time and enjoy the natural environment that the rides give you access to. Don't just turn back around at the cable car, walk around to the waterfall and get your feet wet. Spend some time wandering around the boardwalks in the valley floor, they are awesome and provide excellent... More

Turn up at 9am, you'll get an hour of bliss on the boardwalk before the tourist buses arrive and completely change the solitude of the bush. Not that there was an expectation we would be at Scenic World alone, the Boardwalk is only accessible if you take the Skyway or Scenic Railway which means bottlenecks happen quickly. Don't get me...

It's awesome, costs $35, for which you get stunning views, 3 of the best sky rides possible (cable car, glass bottom sky walk and a sky train) and a really superb rain forest Boardwalk. But don't stay in Katoomba Town which is really quite seedy, stay over in Leura instead.

Beautiful scenery on a beautiful day. Did a couple of the short boarded walks but would have loved more time to do the longer walks. All staff were friendly and helpful

No one can control the weather I know but to pay $35 to see absolutely nothing is a disappointment. It was raining and full of mist. We didn't know what to expect and we saw nothing. Lucky we arrived early because after 10am loads and I mean loads of bus filled tourists arrive. So very crowded. On a positive note... More

The mountains are great but this place isn't... to be fair we went on a sunny Sunday so the lines were horrible, would have been MUCH better on a slow Monday. The ticket is for unlimited rides, we got one go on each in a 4 hour visit. Most annoying bit is small loo's and every ride going off a... More

Make sure that you go down to the floor of the forest, it's amazing. Ride the train, Skyway and the cable car both ways to get the full experience.
