Scenic World has shown a strong commitment to protecting the natural environment, through energy efficiency measures and the protection of natural sites.
Scenic World is serious about improving its energy efficiency and reducing its environmental impact. Electricity generated by the railway during its descent is fed back into the grid, offsetting the electricity used in its ascent. Lanolin instead of petroleum is used to grease the railway tracks and minimise friction. The Skyway upgrade will increase capacity without additional energy use, while the Cableway is being upgraded to minimise peak energy usage.
Environmentally conscious visitors can experience (guilt-free) the thrill of the world’s steepest train, meander through ancient rainforest on Australia’s longest elevated boardwalk, ascend out of the valley on the country’s steepest cablecar, and glide across the Jamison Valley in Australia’s highest cablecar.
Enjoy unparalleled views of the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Mount Solitary at this ‘must experience’ Blue Mountains attraction.
