Hang onto your hats, and your tummies too!
The Scenic Cableway at Scenic World is seriously steep, and although this is the last blog post in the Scenic World series, don’t think the ride is any less thrilling than the Scenic Railway or the Scenic Skyway.
I hope the photo above, taken as the Cableway swoops down to the lower station, gives some idea of how steep the descent is. It’s scary in a good way.
The twins were just a tad nervous when they saw this ahead of them! They were very brave, but there’s always a place for holding Mum’s hand, don’t you think?
The fully enclosed Scenic Cableway is just over half a kilometre long. You can ride down into the Jamison Valley, and come straight back up if you want to.
Or you can have a walk along the Scenic Walkway for a while, perhaps walking along to the Scenic Railway for the ride back up.
Here’s a view from the side window on a less steep part. It’s amazing to see the huge sandstone cliffs of the escarpement close too as the Cableway goes down.
There’s actually no need to be afraid. Look at the size of the mechanics that make the Cableway run.
How impressive is that engineering?
My kids loved looking at these wheels as the spun around lifting and lowering the Cableway.
They kept themselves amused in other ways too, of course. Give me back my phone, twins!
The kids and I have really enjoyed our visits and we’ll certainly be going there again.
Wishing you a lovely weekend and happy travels with the family.
What fun are you planning for the weekend?
