Tourist Attractions

Glide between cliff tops with panoramic views of World Heritage landscapes on the Scenic Skyway. This 720 metre journey provides the best views of Katoomba Falls, the Three Sisters, Mt Solitary and Jamison Valley.

Suspended 270 metres above ancient ravines, breathtaking views of rainforest canopy are revealed beneath your feet through the electro-glass cabin floor. For the less adventurous, seating and solid flooring is also available.

Opened in 1958 the Scenic Skyway was Australia's first cable car. The current Swiss-made cabin was launched in 2017 and can carry 84 passengers every 10 minutes. It is the largest aerial cable car in the Southern Hemisphere.

Disembark at the Skyway's East Station to access lookouts along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, including Echo Point and the iconic Three Sisters.
