Scenic World, located in the NSW Blue Mountains, has unveiled its new Scenic Cableway, following a $4 million upgrade to the popular tourist attraction.
The updated Cableway features a more spacious cabin and larger windows, giving visitors are prime view of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains.
The reconfigured cabin also allows for streamlined loading and features free Wi-Fi in response to demand from international guests wanting to share their experience in real time.
The upgrade follows a series of investment across the attraction in recent years, including a $3 million upgrade of the Scenic Skyway last year and a $30 million overhaul of the Scenic Railway in 2013.
Managing director Anthea Hammon says the upgrades have helped to improve the visitor experience.
“It is a privilege to be part of a thriving NSW tourism economy but we recognise the need to innovate and evolve to meet the changing needs of our guests and retain our leading position in a competitive market,” she says.
With overnight visitation to Blue Mountains up almost 10 per cent over the last year, Hammon says innovation was crucial to support continued growth.
“The natural beauty of the Blue Mountains is a major drawcard for visitors and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to the future success of our stunning region which we’re proud to call home,” she says.
Scenic World’s parent company iis a cornerstone investor in the Sydney Zoo and was recently appointed to operate tourism activities on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as reported in August by Spice News.
