The Adventurous Attractions at Scenic World

Set just outside of vibrant Sydney in the beautiful surrounds of the Blue Mountains sits Scenic World, one of the region’s most adventurous hotspots. Here, as well as exploring the beauty of the natural scenery, spotting colourful native birds, and breathing in the fresh mountain air, you can take to the skies and discover the region from a completely different perspective.

Home to a selection of high rides, Scenic World is the perfect way to get to know the Blue Mountains from above.

The Attractions at Scenic World

Scenic Railway

This is the steepest passenger railway in the world, covering a 52-degree incline. The carriages boast glass roofs so you have uninterrupted views of the lush Jamison Valley from every angle.

The custom-made carriages mean you can choose your own adventure – you can adjust your seat position up to 20-degrees, so you can have a “cliff-hanger” ride at a 64-degree incline, or a more relaxed ride with the “laidback” option. The ride itself takes you through a cliff-side tunnel, emerging into the ancient rainforest at the other end.

Scenic Walkway

For a more relaxed experience, you can take a stroll around the 2.4km stretch of the Scenic Walkway. This is an elevated boardwalk that takes you directly through the Jurassic scenery of the Jamison Valley floor. As you go, you can learn more about the area’s rich mining history, and discover some of the forest’s native flora and fauna.

Scenic Cableway

For panoramic views of the Blue Mountains, hop aboard the Scenic Cableway. Travelling along 545 metres of track, this ride descends into the Jamison Valley, keeping you safe in a fully enclosed cabin that offers spectacular views from its unique vantage point. From the top, you can see some of the region’s most spectacular natural wonders, including the Three Sisters, Orphan Rock, and Katoomba Falls.

Scenic Skyway

On the Scenic Skyway, you can glide between the green-velvet cliff tops and admire the rainforest canopy below through the glass floor. At 270 metres above the ancient ravines below, the Skyway promises breath-taking views of the Blue Mountains – but, if you’d like something more relaxed, there is a solid floor option, too. From the Skyway, you can peer out at the Three Sisters and the Jamison Valley as it sprawls out beneath you to the horizon and beyond.

Scenic World provides the perfect opportunity to get to know the Blue Mountains, giving you the chance to soak up the spectacular scenery and marvel at the ancient beauty of the Jamison Valley.
