The now famous Scenic Railway at Katoomba operates in the original cutting in the mountain side at Katoomba and is the steepest railway incline in the world. Adjacent to the railway is the Katoomba Scenic Cableway, the steepest aerial Cable Car in Australia, which takes you on a 545 metre ride into the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area rainforest of the Jamison Valley.
