Sights in Katoomba
- Sort by:
To the west of Katoomba is Scenic World. If you can stomach the megaplex vibe and blaring Raiders of the Lost Ark theme, ride the 1880s railway down the 52-degree incline to the Jamison Valley floor. Wander the 2.5km forest boardwalk or hike the track to the Ruined Castle rock formation (12km, six hours return), then catch the Cableway, an enclosed, wheelchair-accessible cable car, back up the slope. There’s also a cable car called the Scenic Skyway, which floats out across Katoomba Falls gorge. Its glass floor gives passengers views of the valley canopies 200m below.
