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.

Blue Mountains Small-Group Tour with Scenic World and Wildlife Park from Sydney
Great day out with are local guide Scotty, he was brilliant good laugh and very knowledgable, there was a lot of low cloud when we arrived at viewing area for the three sisters so Scotty asked if we would like to see a water fall not on the itinerary, we all agreed and it was amazing. We visited three sisters later and they were in full view. Thanks Scotty Andy and Pat

Blue Mountains Small-Group Tour with Scenic World and Wildlife Park from Sydney
Lloyd was a great guide....personable, knowledgeable, funny. He took great care of us. The trip itself was fantastic. The Blue Mountains are gorgeous. Loved the cable ride, train ride and walk through the rainforest. The stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park was a treat....feeding the kangaroos and getting to see local wildlife, bonus was the picture with the koala. Highly recommended this excursion Well worth the price

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.

Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney Including Scenic World
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 Small-Group Tour with Scenic World and Wildlife Park from Sydney
Very good tour despite sub par weather. Alex was great tour guide, and took us to a couple of unplanned spot (one of which was Lincoln’s Rock) that were spectacular. This tour is well worth the money.

Ultimate Blue Mountains Private Tour including Scenic World and Featherdale
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!

Ultimate Blue Mountains Private Tour including Scenic World and Featherdale
We had such great experience with Scott he’s professional and he’s doing his job with a lot of pleasure and passion. It was actually my birthday and he made it A memorable one. He truly enjoys what he does and I think that’s what made our experience so great. He took us to so many wonderful places and even a great lunch spot that I will never forget. If you’re looking to have fun and be guided by a person who genuinely enjoys what they’re doing you found the right place. His wife Julia bake us cookies which were so delicious. This is a great team and You or to your self to experience the blue mountains and all that Sydney has to offer with people who genuinely care.🙏

Blue Mountains Small-Group Tour with Scenic World and Wildlife Park from Sydney
The trip went completely as described. There were fires around Sydney, but the winds made for miles of visibility in the Blue Mountains. The downside: those winds closed a couple walking trails along the route because of fire danger. The lunch was good and included good local beers and wines.

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.
