Scenic World – Blue Mountains

We highly recommend you consider a visit to Scenic World as part of our Blue Mountains & Featherdale Private Tour. This is a privately owned tourist attraction located in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. It hosts 4 main attractions, Katoomba Scenic Railway, Scenic Skyway, the Cableway and the Walkway.

Whilst theme parks or man made tourist attractions may not be your thing, I recommend you go to Scenic World as all the attractions are designed to give you a real experience in this rugged National Park.

Long Reef Aquatic Reserve

Long Reef Aquatic Reserve, on Sydney’s northern beaches is a unique environment due to its geology and exposure to all four points of the compass.

There are many submerged shipwrecks off Long Reef Reserve, some due to accidents and others where vessels have been sunk to create artificial reefs.

Amongst the many marine animals and plants, migratory birds travel tens of thousands of kilometres from Siberia and Japan to spend time at Long Reef. It must be good!!img_6255

Blue Mountains

The Greater Blue Mountains region is Australia’s most accessible wilderness area approximately 90 minutes drive from Sydney.

This is a world heritage listed National Park with a diverse mix of temperate rainforest, native forest, rugged sandstone cliffs, deep canyons and towering waterfalls.

This area offers some of those most spectacular views and too many to mention. However any visit to the mountains would not be complete without a viewing from Echo Point and Govetts Leap. Don’t miss these. See our Blue Mountains & Featherdale Tour.
