Blue Mountains Scenic World Rides
Scenic Railway, Cableway, Skyway
ALL 3 SCENIC RIDES ARE AVAILABLE ON YOUR BLUE MOUNTAINS TOUR
Discover the thrill of a 52 degree incline (128% incline) riding the steepest passenger railway in the world, the Scenic Railway.
Following an award-winning redevelopment in 2013, this unforgettable experience offers glass-roofed carriages with expansive views of the rain forest setting and spectacular Jamison Valley.
The Railway experience descends 310 metres through a cliff-side tunnel, emerging into ancient rain forest at the Jamison Valley floor. Operating since 1945, the Scenic Railway has thrilled 25 million passengers – this is the fifth generation train to ride the tracks since the Hammon family opened the attraction.
Carrying 84 passengers, the train departs every ten minutes. Disembark at the bottom station to access the Scenic Walkway and stroll through 2.4 kilometres of Jurassic rain forest.
Another alternative is to do the Cable way ride which is a more traditional cable car as seen in Europe and travels down into the Jamison Vally to connect with the Walkway. The Walkway is approximately 400 metres around to the Scenic Railway.
The Sky way travels horizontally over the Katoomba Falls and has breathtaking views.
These rides are a must do in the Blue Mountains. You have plenty of time to enjoy all three rides and add some fun into your Blue Mountain sightseeing tour experience.
The Walkway is a raised boardwalk winding through the temperate rain forest. There are additional walks around to the base of Katoomba falls you may wish to consider.
