The Blue Mountains’ iconic Scenic Cableway is getting a four million dollar makeover to improve the visitor experience for those using the aerial railway. And yes, it will include FREE WIFI!

The cableway will be closed from tomorrow, reopening in mid September with a more spacious cabin, streamlined loading and larger windows to improve viewing of the iconic Three Sisters and beyond.

The refreshed cabin will also have FREE WIFI which has been a huge request from international guests wanting to share the experience (code for Insta story) with their friends and families in real time.

Scenic World’s Managing Director Anthea Hammon said the Cableway upgrade was part of Scenic World’s commitment to constantly evolve the visitor experience.

“We pride ourselves on providing world class experiences that leave a lasting impression, but we recognise the importance of having technology and infrastructure that meets the ever-changing needs of our guests,” she said.

“We’ve come a long way over the past 73 years because innovation is something we do well. We’re constantly looking for new opportunities to evolve as a business, and the Cableway upgrade is well aligned with our mission to create the unforgettable for our valued guests.”

First installed in 2001 to open up access to the Jamison Valley, the Scenic Cableway is the steepest and descending 510 metres to the valley floor.

The Cableway features a fully enclosed cabin and provides a unique vantage point of the Three Sisters, Orphan Rock, Mt Solitary and Katoomba Falls.

The Cableway upgrade follows a number of major investments in recent years, including a three million dollar upgrade of the Scenic Skyway last year and a $30 million overhaul of the Scenic Railway in 2013.
