Really enjoyed the day at Scenic World. Good cafes there. Free water refills. Get there early to avoid crowds.

We all loved it, kids and parents and grandparents. The cable cars, the train, the walks and dinosaurs. Lovely big cafe restaurant and gift shop. The views were like something out of a movie, parrots flying around. I can’t recommend it enough. We had our...More

There’s lots to see but always packed with tourists. Not the relaxing experience you come to expect when in the bush. Walkways very well maintained. Rides are well organised.

We visited yesterday with three generations in toe..... 12 of us! It was a big day but well worth it. We went to the early bird session which was well worth the early rise as by 10am it was bustling! The train, cableway and skyway...More

Scenic World is a really nice place for a visit to see the Blue Mountains and the rain forest of the valley. Some good attractions including the worlds steepest railway. The currently have a dinosaur walk as well in the rain forest.

The walkway, railway and ropeway are super. The Dinosaur valley is a good attempt. The valley itself reminds you of prehistoric times and you can easily imagine how it could have been. You can spend a whole day. Staff is friendly and the little sprinklers...More

We went during school holidays which was very busy. We purchased tickets on-line which is advised to avoid big queques. The on-line purchase also gave us a reserved parking spot in the undercover carpark which was VERY welcome! During school holidays they have staggered entry...More

Unless there is a discount offered to purchase tickets on-line, I do not recommend you to pre-purchase them. Purchase them when you are there. Also, my strong recommendation is that you arrive before 10 am if you can. You... More
