Tourist Attractions

The 545 metre Scenic Cableway journey gently descends into the Jamison Valley and returns to the top of the escarpment.

The fully enclosed cabin is a unique vantage point for viewing iconic rock formations including Three Sisters, Orphan Rock and Mt Solitary. Passing closely by sheer sandstone cliffs, it showcases the renowned geology and geomorphology of the World Heritage region.

Opened in 2000, the current Swiss-made cabin was launched in 2018. Built by world leading ropeway engineering company, Doppelmayr Garaventa, it features improved accessibility with capacity for 84 passengers. It is the steepest aerial cable car in the Southern Hemisphere.

Disembark the Cableway directly onto the Scenic Walkway to experience temperate rainforest.
