Archived 17 Feb 2019 - Posted: 24 Dec 2018
There is plenty of time to get out and enjoy the day before or after feasting on prawns, mince tarts and pavlova. Three of the Mountains' leading attractions will be open and ready to welcome you through their doors this Christmas Day.

Scenic World

Less than two hours from Sydney, Scenic World is renowned for providing the ultimate Blue Mountains Adventure - from native birds and fresh air, to breathtaking views of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains including the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls & Jamison Valley.

Whether you want to take an exhilarating ride on the world’s steepest railway, explore the mystery of the ancient rainforest or discover how high the Skyway glides above the valley floor, there’s something for everyone at Scenic World.

This summer Scenic World has even more to offer with their Dinosaur Valley experience free with entry to Scenic World. Accessed by the world’s steepest railway, visitors of all ages will enjoy stepping back in time with friendly Dinosaur Rangers to meet more than 20 prehistoric dinosaurs up close in their natural environment.

Once you've ridden all the attractions pop into one of Scenic World's eateries to recharge for your next adventure and pick up a memento at the gift store.

The Blue Mountains Explorer Bus takes you to more of the sights, faster and more frequently than any other Blue Mountains tour. Hop on and off at 31 stops in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area of Katoomba, Leura, and Wentworth Falls – with live commentary and personal service from friendly driver-guides. Hop on the bus in Katoomba and in minutes you can be soaring high above huge waterfalls or shooting down into ancient rainforest on the world's steepest railway.

15 buses a day take you to some of our most spectacular waterfalls, so the choice is yours: see them all, or stay a while and treat yourself to a secluded natural shower! With more than 10 stops located close to fantastic bush walks, the Explorer Bus is your key to a bush adventure that can last half an hour or half a day.

Plan your own day at your pace to visit waterfalls, attractions, galleries, gardens, bushwalks, cafes and restaurants as well as the major attractions of The Three Sisters and Scenic World.
