Scenic World is located within the World Heritage Listed Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, just 90 minutes from Sydney. It is an ideal setting for fieldwork for a number of syllabuses. Students can be inspired by their surroundings and excited by the rides, whilst learning about the environment through active participation in fieldwork.

Students can ride the steepest incline Railway in the world down to a warm temperate rainforest in the valley, stroll along the Walkway through the rainforest, and quietly glide out of the valley aboard the Cableway, taking in the breathtaking panorama of the famous Three Sisters, the magnificent Katoomba Falls, Mt Solitary, Orphan Rock and the near endless vista of the Jamison Valley.

Scenic World has recently gained the expertise of an experienced geography teacher and senior educator to manage the education program for schools. Schools can continue to access Scenic World and use the ride only program (where teachers work with their students themselves) or they can now work with the education manager to provide a quality learning experience for their students.

The programs being offered at Scenic World will take time to change over. Already there are new programs available for Year 7 geography classes coming to Scenic World to look at World Heritage (4G1) or mountains/ warm temperate rainforest (4G2). These programs can be combined or accessed separately.

The Education section of the Scenic World website now contains: information on programming for fieldwork, sample fieldwork schedules and worksheets, information on assessing fieldwork and details of the new fieldwork competition open to all schools that do fieldwork at Scenic World.

When booking in you need to indicate which topic area in geography you are focusing on. Individual programs can be designed to meet the specific needs of the class, the topic of study and the length of the visit, by discussing your needs with the Education Manager. All programs will be designed to closely fit the syllabus requirements for content and skills.

The guides at Scenic World are experienced and accredited and skilled to cater for all ages from Years 3 through to Year 12.
