World Heritage sites are typically known for their quiet beauty and historical significance, but Scenic World, stationed in the heart of Katoomba, amps it up with a major adrenaline rush. It includes the Scenic Railway, Scenic Skyway, Scenic Walkway and Scenic Cableway and visitors can “walk on air’ in a glass-floored skyway suspended 270 meters above ground, or hitch a ride in the steepest incline railroad on earth.
Those afraid of heights can wander through Jurassic Rainforest or stroll through the Waterfall Walk and informative Coal Mining exhibit. More adventurous friends can catch the incredible views of Jamison Valley and Three Sisters from inside the country’s steepest cable car.
Scenic World is about 100 kilometers from Sydney and located at the corner of Violet Street and Cliff Drive. Free parking is available, or visitors can take the Blue Mountain Explorer of Trolley Tours bus from Katoomba. Scenic world is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with ticket prices ranging from $18 (child) to $88 (family).
