Plan for a Winter Adventure at Scenic World

  • From: $49.90

There’s always something exciting about heading for the misty blue hills in the distance during wintertime. It’s the sense of adventure, the possibility of snow flurries, the buzz that you get from the fresh air and the fun of rugging up in oversized jackets and woolly beanies.

Once you jump in the car or train, you can watch the scenery change from cityscape to towering gums and expansive valley views as you travel towards Katoomba.

Winter in the Blue Mountains brings with it a magical feeling, as the temperature drops the level of fun just goes up. With expansive views, thrilling rides and natural highs, you can’t beat a day trip to Scenic World. Check out Scenic World’s Unlimited Discovery Pass where you can venture into the Jamison Valley rainforest via the world’s steepest train, the Scenic Railway, or glide down on the Cableway past breath-taking views of the iconic Three Sisters and Orphan Rock.

Plan for a winter adventure at Scenic World
Scenic World is an unmissable experience for nature lovers and thrill-seekers.

Soak up the ethereal vibes as you walk along the 500m boardwalk, a gentle 10-minute walk between the Railway and Cableway stations. Or if you’re looking to warm up those legs a little more, there’s also a 30-minute or 50-minute boardwalk track that takes you further along the rainforest valley floor. Keep your eyes peeled for lyrebirds scratching in the leaves, native birds, and a vast array of native trees and plants.

To ascend from the valley, catch the Railway or Cableway back to the main building. Once up top, you can view a whole new perspective from the Scenic Skyway, suspended 270 metres above the ancient ravine below. View the entire grandeur of the Jamison Valley, the majestic Katoomba Falls and the spectacular rock formations of the Three Sisters in the distance. On the Unlimited Discovery Pass, you can catch the rides as many times as you like in a single day.

Scenic World not only serves up stunning scenery but delicious food too. Finish off your experience with a tasty bite to eat at the Terrace Café where you can find all your favourites like pizza, burgers, nachos and toasty mugs of hot chocolate or coffee.

Scenic World Blue Mountains Scenic Railway
The steepest passenger railway in the world with a 52-degree incline! 

Feel on top of the world

Beyond Skyway is a world-first experience that takes guests to new and unexplored heights on the rooftop of the Skyway cable car in the Blue Mountains. Once on the roof, with nothing to restrict the 360-degree view, the immersive experience is both exhilarating and completely serene.

An intimate adventure, catering to only four guests (ages 10 and up) at a time, the Beyond Skyway experience sets off from Scenic World in Katoomba. Each group travels out with the Beyond Skyway crew on the iconic Scenic Skyway to the middle of the Jamison Valley, 270m above the ancient rainforest canopy below. Guests are fitted with full-body harnesses and climb up the ladder, through the hatch in the roof and out into the open air of the cabin’s rooftop.

Take in the majestic Katoomba Falls, The Three Sisters, Mount Solitary and many other landmarks of the Jamison Valley from a whole new perspective as the setting sun creates a kaleidoscope of colours across the horizon. It’s like being on a floating lookout, offering a rare 360-degree view of the Blue Mountains.
