Enjoy thrilling adventures with Scenic World in the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage wilderness near Sydney. You’ll travel on the world’s steepest incline passenger railway into ancient rainforest and glide between rugged cliff tops on a glass-floored cable car.
Less than two hours’ drive west of Sydney, the Blue Mountains are named after the natural blue haze created by the vast eucalypt forests. From Sydney’s Central Station, the train trip is two hours to Katoomba, where there are buses for the short trip to Scenic World.
On Scenic World’s Scenic Railway, you’ll descend at an incline of 52 degrees through a cliff-side tunnel. At the bottom explore Jurassic rainforest on the Scenic Walkway, a 2.4 km elevated boardwalk in the Jamison Valley.
You can also descend to the valley on the Scenic Cableway in an enclosed cabin. On the way down to the valley, enjoy spectacular views. Scenic Skyway, suspended 270 metres above ravines, travels between cliff tops and has a glass floor to see the forest canopy.
Scenic World is open every day of the year, from 9am to 5pm.
