Summer at Scenic World in Katoomba

Visiting Scenic World is a joy at any time, but in summer the place really shines.

The days are warm but the nights are cool. It’s hot in the sun but perfect in the shade. In short, it’s the ideal place to immerse yourself in nature.

Whether it’s relaxing in the cool, quiet rainforest, enjoying the thrill of riding on the world’s steepest passenger train or gliding between the clifftops on the famous Skyway.

Scenic World’s managing director, Anthea Hammon, said that summer at Scenic World is always fun.

“We’re open every day, including Christmas Day, and offer a range of entertainment from an Australian bird and reptile display to live music. We also turn our forecourt into a grassed backyard, complete with deck chairs, a pop-up café and an ice cream shop.”

The long summer days are also the time to take advantage of Scenic World’s extended opening hours.

“Watching the Three Sisters glow in the last light of the day as the sun sets on the Jamison Valley is a truly beautiful experience.”
