Less than two hours from Sydney, Scenic World is renowned for providing the ultimate Blue Mountains adventure - from native birdlife and fresh air, to breathtaking views of the World Heritage-listed region including the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Jamison Valley. Journey on the world's steepest incline railway, glide between clifftops on the glass-floored Skyway suspended 270 metres in the air, descend into the ancient Jamison Valley by Cableway, explore Jurassic rainforest along the 2.4 kilometres walkway - the longest boardwalk in the Southern Hemisphere. Make a day of it! Scenic World offers free all day parking and a choice of onsite dining options.

Wonderful day and great value costing $39 per adult to ride all three rides. Lovely walks if you are mobile, but equally great if you can't walk far.

we purchased tickets online and showed the email on the day ie the e ticket on our phone on the day, make sure get there early otherwise you get caught up with the coaches from Sydney and have really long waits
so we are planning on going on a rental car to go check out the blue mountains...is it going to be worth? or is it better to book a tour?
