You Ain’t Scene Nothing Yet

Exploring new parts of the world is thrilling when you are a young gun and time is irrelevant, but travelling takes on a whole new meaning when you have mini-mes along for the ride.

Uncovering hidden gems while travelling is so rewarding, but lugging nappy bags, snack bags and every other conceivable type of bag with you on an adventure means unnecessary side trips are the last thing you feel like doing.

In order to save a lot of headaches, us parents have to uncover the super mega awesome secret spots long before you jump into the car or hop onto the plane.

So, in the spirit of saving as many parents as a I can from falling into the hum drum rhythm of a dull school holidays, I am going to let you in on a little secret there’s an amazing gem nestled among the Blue Mountains that is perfect for families.

It’s called Scenic World.

Not only does a family pass include two adults and FIVE children *gasp*, but there is only one price to pay for unlimited use of its breath-taking glass bottom Skyway, awe-inspiring Scenic Cableway and its unique Scenic Railway.

At a staggering 52 degree angle, the railway boasts the title of steepest in the world and far from being in a traditional bench seat train set up, this is one ultra-modern contraption that allows 360 degree views of the stunning natural scenery.

As those overly enthusiastic infomercial reps say, “But wait, there’s more!”

These spring school holidays, they have added an extra dimension to the already impressive ancient rainforest walk in the Jamison Valley an interactive bird show.

The stars of the Take Flight show are the adorable Tyto the Masked Owl and Yasmin the Barn Owl, both of which are threatened species, making them a real treat to get up close and personal to.

Tyto and Yasmin do their thing in the natural amphitheatre under the watchful eye of show host Ravi Wasan, who founded Feathered Friends, a sanctuary for sick and injured birds in Western Sydney.

Ravi says the World Heritage listed rainforest is the perfect location for Take Flight because it is also Tyto and Yasmin’s natural habitat.

The 20-minute show in the magical valley is on every day from October 1 to October 8 and is a must-do these school holidays.

Just 90 minutes from Sydney, Scenic World is close, but far enough away to feel like a real getaway this spring.
