The World Heritage listed Blue Mountains are one of those sights that truly gives new meaning to the term “breathtaking”. With dizzying numbers of historic, natural and cultural experiences to take in both above and below the tree line, Scenic World offers a range of exciting experiences to help visitors explore. Embark on the world’s steepest incline railway, the Katoomba Scenic Railway, fly 270 metres suspended over forest on the glass-floored Katoomba Scenic Skyway, or take in the views as you descend and let the tree line swallow you whole on the Cableway. Stretch your legs along the longest boardwalk in the Southern Hemisphere, the Katoomba Scenic Walkway, while you learn about the area’s rich mining history and look out for local wildlife.
