One of the main attractions of Scenic World is the Sky Way which slowly travels 700m way above ravines, waterfalls and rainforests. Enjoy the 360 degree breathtaking views or, if you dare, look down through the glass-floor and see the forest below.
Scenic World is also one of the area's gate-ways into the rainforest. The Scenic Railway will raise your heart-rate with its steep and quick descent, or you can travel a little slower in the Scenic Cableway. As well as being a more suitable option for the faint-hearted the cableway has the advantage of being completely wheelchair accessible.
Once in the rainforest the boarded and well-signed walkways make for an enjoyable and easy bush walk, some of the walk is wheelchair accessible.
The boarded walkway provides a safe and comfortable way to explore the rainforest
Along the walk there are small displays about the history of the coal mines, interesting facts about the plant life and the occasional bench or lookout to take in the fresh-air and the views. The signage along the Scenic Walkway is so clear that you can decide which way to go based on what you want to see and how long it will take to get there. You can walk to your heart's content, or perhaps until hunger strikes!
The quickest way out of the rainforest is to take the Cableway or Scenic Railway to the top. Back at Scenic World the eatery options include a kiosk, café and buffet restaurant. They all serve a large variety of food; there really is something to suit everybody's dietary needs and budget.
Don't let a hot or raining day in Sydney turn you off visiting Scenic World as the mountains are renowned for variable and cool temperatures but be sure to pack some warm clothes (even on the hottest of days). Put on your walking shoes and you will be ready to experience one of Australia's most beautiful destinations.
