Blue Mountains is one of Australia’s premier destinations. There is so much to see and a day is not enough to explore many of its tourist attractions. My family and I drove this time to the Blue Mountains’s Scenic World. It’s about one and a half drive from where we live but it’s about two hours from Sydney’s City Centre by car, bus, or train.
Scenic World – in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains of Australia – offers a range of experiences that can be found nowhere else on Earth. First, this Scenic Railway. We were hesitant to ride, but we can’t say “no” to my 5 year old son’s excitement.
This is the Scenic Railway Train. Well-designed to hold passengers for an amazing ride to the steepest inclined railway! A 415 metre descent in a dark, cold, and cliff-side tunnel into ancient rainforest. All you will hear are screams of terrified passengers!

Which way would you choose?
The well-preserved Katoomba’s Coal Mine. Look, even the miners were preserved!
Thirsty? You deserve to sit and relax on one of these Miner’s benches.
Fresh Drinking water on its side!
