Guests on cross-continental rail journey Indian Pacific are now able to explore the Blue Mountains as part of an optional experience included in the fare.
Travellers can disembark in Mt Victoria before visiting Scenic World “to experience the steepest-incline railway in the world, journey to the top of the mountains in a cable car and then take in the views of the spectacular Three Sisters rock formation from the Skyway”.
Take it from someone with a huge fear of heights: the Blue Mountains railway is a thrilling experience not to be missed.
It descends 310m through a tunnel to emerge into a Jurassic rainforest.
It’s been redeveloped with carriages that allow passengers to adjust their seat from Original — on a 52-degree incline — to adventurous Cliffhanger (64-degree incline) or Laid Back for a more relaxing experience.
