Scenic World

Must See, Shopping

For a view you can’t get anywhere else, take a trip on Scenic World’s three thrilling rides. Marvel at the birds-eye views of the 3 Sisters and Katoomba Falls on the Skyway and Cableway, then ride the world’s steepest railway down into the rainforest in the floor of the Jamison Valley.

Perched on the cliff overlooking the Jamison Valley and the Three Sisters, Scenic World is the Blue Mountains most popular man-made attraction. The three exciting rides here offer beautiful views of the Blue Mountains you simply can’t get any other way.

Scenic Skyway

The glass bottomed Skyway floats 270 metres above the floor of the Jamison Valley, offering amazing views of the Three Sisters, Mount Solitary and Katoomba Falls. Part of the cabin floor is made of electro-sceni glass which becomes completely clear as you cross, giving a dizzying view of the rainforest right below your feet. If you don’t feel that adventurous, seating and solid flooring is also available.

Scenic Walkway

Beginning at the bottom of the Scenic Railway, this 2.4km-long wooden boardwalk leads through beautiful Jurassic rainforest to the Valley station of the Cableway. You can spend anything from 10 minutes to an hour walking between the two. This is one of our favourite walks to do on rainy days, when the tall tree ferns come alive in vibrant shades of green.

Scenic Railway

The steepest incline railway in the world takes you safely and comfortably down into the depths of the Jamison Valley in just over two minutes. Originally built to haul coal from mines at the base of the cliffs, the Scenic Railway was converted to carry tourists in 1945. The new bright red Swiss train comes with seats that you tilt forwards or backwards for a more exciting or relaxing ride.

When you get off, walk right and you’ll find some interesting mine relics and historical displays about the coal mining days.

Scenic Cableway

This fully enclosed and wheelchair-accessible cable car glides over forest, descending gently to the valley floor with yet more fantastic views of the Three Sisters, Orphan Rock and Katoomba Falls.
