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.

Since spending $$$ last year, the place is better now than ever. It can get pretty busy on the weekends and the summer season. Take your pick which ride you like best.

A very very busy tourist trap but don't let that put you off. The rides on the cableway etc are not to be missed but you do have to wait in line. The highlight for me was walking through the rainforest on the boardwalks taking in the huge variety of flora. Also the views acrooss the mountains were superb. The... More

Was contemplating whether or not to go here. Decided in the early afternoon to give it a go. Only waited a couple of minutes to get tickets for my Husband and I. First stop was the Scenic Railway and unfortunately the young guy "in charge" was very rude towards people. This was around 1:30pm on 27/04/217. Apart from that the... More

Scenic world in the blue mountains is a wonderful place to visit. We had lots of fun on the rides there and spent lots of time bushwalking. although prices for everything were way too high and it was a bit touristy. overall we enjoyed our visit

My wife and I spent a couple of hours here but the found the rides a little underwhelming and... More

The Scenic World was too touristy for me. I would have rather spent the time hiking the trails in the blue mountains then spend my time waiting in line for the sky ride or the train. I didn't think it was worth the price.
