Enjoy an interactive bird show as well unlimited rides on the world’s steepest passenger train these school holidays

There are few ways of experiencing the Blue Mountains that are more exciting than Scenic World, with its famous Scenic Railway and Scenic Cableway descending to the valley floor, Scenic Skyway gliding between clifftops, and Scenic Walkway winding through the ancient rainforest below.

During the second week of the October school holidays, visitors to Scenic World can enjoy a bonus attraction. Take Flight interactive bird show takes place in the natural amphitheatre of the Scenic Walkway.

Take Flight host Ravi Wasan is the founder of Feathered Friends, a sanctuary for sick and injured birds in Western Sydney. Ravi will introduce Tyto the Masked Owl and Terry the Red-tailed Black Cockatoo, birds native to the area.

The 20-minute show is on a 1pm and 3pm, October 1-8, and entry is free with the Scenic World Unlimited Discovery Pass. Be sure to allow 30 minutes to get from the Scenic World main building down to the Scenic Walkway via the Scenic Railway or Scenic Cableway.

Having witnessed two endangered species taking flight, why not experience your own bird’s eye view of the rainforest canopy on board the Scenic Skyway – the glass-floored cable car that that travels 270 metres above the Jamison Valley?

There’s an Earlybird Special for visitors arriving before 10am during the school holidays: $88 for two adults and up to five children under 14.

Scenic World strongly recommends you book your passes online, as sessions often sell out during school holidays.
