Scenic World

Violet St, Katoomba, NSW, 2780

The Basics

Scenic World has four main attractions—the Scenic Skyway, Scenic Cableway, Scenic Walkway, and Scenic Railway—and both single and combination tickets are available. The glass-floored Scenic Skyway is the largest aerial cable car in the Southern Hemisphere and offers views of Katoomba Falls, the Three Sisters, and the Jamison Valley. The Scenic Cableway descends into the Jamison Valley, with views of Orphan Rock and Mount Solitary, while the Scenic Walkway is a 1.5-mile-long (2.4-kilometer-long) boardwalk through the lush rain forest of the Jamison Valley floor. Finally, the thrilling Scenic Railway is the steepest passenger railway in the world, climbing out of the valley.

Most travelers visit on a day tour from Sydney, and many Blue Mountains tours include a cruise down the Parramatta River or stops at attractions such as the Featherdale Wildlife Park or the mountain town of Leura.

Great experience
Tour guide Jed made trip to this magic place even more interesting than it would be if we went there by ourself. A little bit expensive compared to train and walking alone but worth it. Times on attractions should be a little longer.

Blue Mountains Hop-on Hop-off Tour with Optional Scenic World Rides
Blue Mountains Explorer Hop on Hop off Bus is a great way to explore Blue Mountains specially for first time travelers to this Region. Bus driver & tour guide Jimmy was particularly exceptional greeting all tourists in their local language and sharing all the information in a friendly way. There are number of great spots where one can hop off the Bus and again Hop on to continue the tour. Only wish this tour had an option of one day pass also as one needs to buy a 3 day pass by default.

Fully Inclusive Blue Mountains Private Tour inc Scenic World & Featherdale entry
This tour was well worth the price! Scott was a terrific guide who actively engaged us in conversation during the drive out to the mountains. Knowledgeable and personable, he also took good care to get us through the lines and positioned in the best spots possible for sight-seeing at the Three Sisters and for fun with the kangaroos at the zoo. Lunch was yummy and walking through the small mountain city very enjoyable. Thank you very much, Scott!

Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney Including Scenic World
Was in Sydney for work and had one day to tour around. I signed up at the last minute and was not disappointed. Between the wildlife center, the visit to the town of Leura, various stops in the scenic Blue Mountains and the boat ride back into Sydney under the Harbour Bridge, we packed a LOT into that one day. Jed the tour guide was a blast and made the day fun and kept us all on time (no easy task). Would definitely recommend!

The tour guide Mike was great fun and gave interesting facts as the day went on. The tour is family friendly with a variety of activities to suit a range of interests; sight seeing, walking, food, boutique shops, animals, scenic cable rides, river/habour cruise. Very good value for money and the coach was well equipped and comfortable. A great day out!

Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney Including Scenic World
My mom and I enjoyed our tour with Jed very much. We particularly appreciated the range of activities, from meeting and feeding the animals at Featherdale, to a beautiful afternoon at scenic world, to a nice relaxing cruise to get back to Sydney. The timing of the activities was good, allowing to avoid some of the crowds . Our guide Jed was really good, thanks a lot!

When to Get There

It’s possible to visit Scenic World all year round, but the busiest time is during the peak summer season (December–January), when it’s best to make an early start to avoid the crowds. If you’re planning on bushwalking or other outdoor activities, the cooler weather of spring and autumn is ideal.
