Experience The Wonder This Summer
Ride into the ancient Jamison Valley on the world’s steepest railway – the Scenic Railway - followed by a walk along the Scenic Walkway, the longest elevated boardwalk in Australia, and listen out for the calls of the Lyrebird. After you spend 10 minutes or a full hour meandering beneath the rainforest canopy, get up close to the ancient sandstone cliff as you ride back up in the Scenic Cableway, the steepest cable car in the Southern Hemisphere. Take in the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Mount Solitary on the iconic Scenic Skyway as it takes you across the valley. There you can explore Katoomba Cascades or even walk along the escarpment to Echo Point and back, and then jump on the double decker hop on and off bus to keep exploring.
The options are endless, just like the views.
Beyond Skyway: A view like nothing else on earth
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience for a special occasion, the ultimate Instagrammable moment, or simply to get the adrenaline running, Beyond Skyway is for you.
Beyond Skyway is a world-first experience that takes guests to new and unexplored heights on the rooftop of the Skyway cable car over the Jamison Valley. Once on the roof, with nothing to restrict the 360-degree view, the experience is both exhilarating and completely serene.
An intimate adventure, catering to only four guests at a time, the Scenic Skyway parks in the middle of the Jamison Valley with views of the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Mount Solitary.
Guests, fitted with full body harnesses, climb up the ladder through the hatch in the roof and out into the open air of the cabin’s rooftop for a whole new perspective. Guests can then relax on the custom-made wooden bench sipping our signaturemocktail and taking in the sunset across the escarpment and the valley.

Dinosaur Valley: Australia’s largest outdoor dinosaur experience
Travel millions of years back in time for the must-do prehistoric adventure, Dinosaur Valley at Scenic World. And, this year, the herd is double in size than last summer so there are even more dinosaurs and new activities to discover.
Catch the world’s steepest train into the ancient rainforest of the Jamison Valley. Roam the elevated boardwalk beneath the canopy, listen out for the roars, spot the dinosaurs in the natural habitat, and meet baby dinosaurs and expert dinosaur rangers.
When you’ve finished in the valley, catch the steepest aerial cable car in the Southern Hemisphere up the escarpment and continue your hunt for more dinosaurs.And it doesn’t stop there - jump on the Scenic Skyway for a bird’s eye view of the ancient valley as you traverse 270m above the rainforest floor (that’s twice as high as the Sydney Harbour Bridge!).
Surrounded by kilometres of World-Heritage rainforest, Dinosaur Valley is a one-of-a-kind way for the whole family to explore the natural wonders of the Blue Mountains.

Terrace Bar: Local brews paired with the best view
Make the most of the longer days and warmer evenings – enjoy a cold brew and watch the escarpment change colour as the sun sets at the Terrace Bar.
Think Mountain Culture beers, Dryridge Estate wines and Hillbilly Ciders along with warm pretzels and grazing boards - the Terrace Bar has a bar snack and drinks menu with locally sourced ingredients.
Open Friday and Saturday evenings until 8pm after the rest of Scenic World closes. You don't need a ticket to Scenic World to visit and enjoy the Terrace Bar.
Explore More Pass: Chose your own adventure
Whether you are looking for an even eco-friendlier adventure or simply want to add to the fun, grab an Explore More Pass - a Blue Mountains Explorer Bus and Scenic World Ultimate Discovery Pass combo ticket, the cheapest online combination ticket of its kind.
Catch the train to Katoomba or Leura - or park near any of the Explorer Bus stops - and jump on one of the big, red double-decker buses. Hop on and off as you like on the same day - explore the townships of Katoomba and Leura and see the sites dotted along the escarpment at your own pace.
The bus stops at Scenic World at 17 minutes past each hour and kids ride the Explorer Bus for free.
