Scenic Railway to the Landslide is a 2.7km, grade 3 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs 30 mins to complete.


A great walk for those exploring Scenic World as it passes the old coal-mining sites of Katoomba. Following the base of the cliffs the views are largely shrouded until breaking out into the open at the Landslide. As you walk be sure to look up and see if you can spot any abseilers especially in the Malaita Point area.
