Experience Scenic World

Home - Skyway


Discover the Blue Mountains, Sydney’s backyard playground.

A World Heritage-listed wilderness where ancient rock formations cast their golden glow over vast canyons carpeted in eucalypts.

A natural wonderland where waterfalls plummet into valleys clad with rainforest, and breathtaking views stretch to the hazy blue horizon.

A region where quaint, historic villages nestle amongst trees painted with the colours of the seasons, and creativity is inspired by the bounty of nature.

Experience wonders at Scenic World, where the glasstopped carriages of the Scenic Railway take you on a heartstopping ride into the depths of the Jamison Valley;  take a bushwalk along clifftops to spectacular lookouts; and discover unique cultural experiences, from ancient Aboriginal sites to modern street art.

Relax and take a stroll through the World Heritage listed National Park, or perhaps indulge in a slow lunch with a great glass of wine – there are so many choices, you’ll wish you’d stayed longer!

Now is the time to visit and see what makes this place so special.
