    This place has gone from strengh to strength over the last 15 years. Much better than it used to be. I always take international visitors there and they are blown away by the experience. Every time I go there is something new and better. Spectacular scenery and you get immersed in it in a way you can’t anywhere else in Australia. While it costs quite a bit for a ticket, you get a diverse experience and can spend half a day at Scenic World and the rest of the day walking some of the easy and spectacular tracks nearby which are free. So compared to other Australian tourist facilities it gives pretty good value for a whole day’s outing.

    Initially I thought that it was just the Three Sisters (and a bunch of hiking trails) that made up Katoomba, however when we caught the bus back to the railway station it took us past this place (or at least the skytrain). So, we decided to check it out instead of heading back into town. Look, there were some good things about this place, and some rather ordinary things. Sure, the skytrain past the Katoomba falls was magnificent (especially on a rainy day when you see the waterfall in all its glory), and the scenic railway is a thrill of a ride (it descends the mountain at an almost 90 degree angle), and the walks past the restored mining operations at the foot of the cliff were interesting, but it was still really manufactured. I guess the biggest gripe I had was that we were waiting for about half an hour for the bus to come and take us back (we probably just missed the last one).

    They’ve done this place up a lot since I was last here. Nice gift shop and not too pricey – the usual “Made in China” Aussie souvenirs in here… lol.You can buy a $35 ticket which will get you unlimited rides on the Skyway, Cable Car and Scenic Railway – the best value. Or a one-way trip on any of these is $14, which isn’t great value. Unfortunately, we were on limited time so this was what we had to do. No big problems – will make more time next time.Staff were friendly and helpful explaining things to us, and view from the Skyway was excellent, despite being a cloudy day.

    the staff were very warm and very passionate with their job. matthew at the rail way, andy at the cable car, etc. we were there on the 3/jan/14, it was extremely busy, needed to queued up to 40 min for the tickets, then another 30 minutes for the railway and skyway they extended the hours for us, so we had enough time to enjoy all the facilities the walks.all staff were there to greet us for the last ride back from the cableway. we enjoyed ourselves very much. much appreciated for the staff’ humour and great services.

    Visiting from Ireland and all the books advise using Scenic world to appreciate the views that the Blue Mountains have to offer. The books do not lie. The views from the Skywalk were breathtaking. The train is an experience, cant say that my eyes were open for a lot of it but a fear of heights was definitely concurred. Well worth a visit, especially if you have time constraints.
