Scenic World Tours

22 Reviews
Scenic World
Situated at the heart of Australia’s Blue Mountains UNESCO World Heritage Site, Scenic World offers the rare chance to explore the mountains from all angles. Ride overhead in a cable car, hike along the valley floor, ride a train through mountain tunnels, and discover some of the most impressive scenery in Blue Mountains National Park.  

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. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Facilities at Scenic World include car parking, a restaurant, café, and gift shop.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing, especially if you plan on bushwalking, and bring sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water.  
  • The Cableway and Skyway are both wheelchair accessible, as is part of the  Scenic Walkway. Due to the steep grade traveled by the Scenic Railway, it is not recommended for travelers with disabilities.

How to Get There
Scenic World is located just outside of Katoomba village in Blue Mountains National Park, around 62 miles (100 kilometers) or a 90-minute drive from downtown Sydney. To arrive by public transport, catch the train from central Sydney to Katoomba, from which buses make the short journey to Scenic World. 

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. 

Exploring Australia’s Blue Mountains
Popular among outdoor enthusiasts, the Blue Mountains offer activities such as bushwalking, mountain biking, horseback riding, rock climbing, and caving. Among their highlights are the Three Sisters rocks, Wentworth Falls, Gordon Falls, and the Jenolan Caves, among the oldest in the world. Less physically demanding adventures include 4WD excursions in Blue Mountains National Park, helicopter rides over the mountains, and cruises to Sydney along the Parramatta River.
