Scenic World Blue Mountains
Enjoy Breath-Taking Views from The Scenic Skyway, Cableway, Walkway & Railway
Scenic World at Katoomba in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains of Australia offers a range of experiences found nowhere else on Earth.
Discover the thrill of a 52° (128%) incline in open terrain riding the steepest passenger railway in the world, the Scenic Railway.
Following an award-winning redevelopment in 2013, the fifth generation train travels an unforgettable 310 metre route through a cliff tunnel before emerging on the floor of the Jamison Valley.
Passengers can choose their level of adventure, adjusting their seated position up to 20 degrees. Choose CLIFFHANGER at a steep 64° incline; LAIDBACK for a more relaxed journey; or for loyal fans, ORIGINAL at 52°.
Glide between cliff tops with panoramic views of World Heritage landscapes on the Scenic Skyway. This 720 metre journey provides the best views of Katoomba Falls, the Three Sisters, Mt Solitary and Jamison Valley.
Suspended 270 metres above ancient ravines, breathtaking views of rainforest canopy are revealed beneath your feet through the electro-glass cabin floor. For the less adventurous, seating and solid flooring is also available.
The Skyway docks on the east side of the Jamison Valley, where guests can jump off to explore Katoomba Cascades, Reid's Plateau and even walk around to Echo Point.
Experience walking under the canopy of an extraordinary temperate rainforest. Located in the Jamison Valley, the Scenic Walkway is a 500m elevated boardwalk, an easy 10-20 minute walk between the Railway and Cableway stations.
Scenic World’s rainforest is home to many species of native flora and fauna, some dating back to the Jurassic era. Visitors can explore elements of the site’s coal mining history including the original mine entrance, a replica miners’ hut and scale bronze sculpture of a miner and his pit pony.
Protected by the rainforest canopy, the Walkway has its own microclimate quite distinct from the weather at the top of the escarpment. Cool on hot Summer days, it comes to life in the rain: native birdlife becomes more vocal, colours are amplified, and mist confounds your sense of distance.Book Experience
