On this trip you will see famous landmarks such as Boar's Head, Orphan Rock and the Rainforest Boardwalk.

The Cableway is the Southern Hemispheres steepest and largest aerial cableway, taking passengers to and from the Jamieson Valley and its 2.4 km of stunning rainforest walkway.
You may also opt to jump aboard the Scenic Railway – the world’s steepest incline railway – for a journey through the lush vegetation to an elevated boardwalk, from which you can take an interpretive walk (*the Scenic Railway , both cableways plus forest boardwalk experience at Scenic World is an optional extra, payable on the day).
Throughout the day, you will also learn a bit about the local Indigenous culture, European history and facts about the endemic flora and fauna of the area.
