I did a google search for Katoomba skyway and found out the following Hope it helps Actually there were a lot of sites so do the search yourself it was not hard to find the information at all ....

Float on air in the recently unveiled Skyway!

Nowhere else in the world can you experience this thrill.

Take a ride on Skyway, a 720 meter journey 270m above ancient ravines and dazzling waterfalls. Be suspended over Jurassic rainforests as you glide smoothly across the sky.

This ride boasts a world first, state of the art Electro-Sceni Glass Floor. At the flip of a switch breath taking views are revealed through the cabin floor directly below.

The 360 degree birds eye view takes in the three sisters, katoomba falls, mount solitary and the never ending expanse of the jamison valley.

Travel Tips for Katoomba

Campbell Rhododendron Gardens

by iandsmith

The Campbell Rhododendron Gardens (nee Bacchante, the street where they are located at Blackheath) cover eighteen and a half hectares of sclerophyl forest. As well as the whites, pinks and reds more common in coastal areas, the colours here include yellow, orange and deep violet.
Azaleas (related to the rhododendron) also proliferate in springtime.
What has happened here is that the whole thing is done on a voluntary basis. It's really quite extraordinary. Mostly older people with botanical experience who have either moved up here in retirement or always been here (not many other options I suppose!) tend this wonderful display. There are about eight of them.
Basically, the flowers have been planted intermittently throughout the forest so there are flashes of colour rather than a vast expanse of same.
If you're looking for them then the signs say "Rhodo Gardens". This project is under the control of the Blue Mountains Rhododendron Society and is for the study and growing of many hundreds of varieties and species of the really beautiful Rhododendron.
They look forward to your donation in the box provided as this project is maintained from the money visitors donate and the members' subscriptions as well as the support of citizens and local Clubs and Societies.
In the main valley an attractive lake and 5 pools have been constructed. The purpose of the Garden is to educate the public and interested groups who wish to delve more deeply into the Genus Rhododendron, and to conserve the natural features of the area for the pleasure of visitors and to encourage tourists to enjoy the beauty of the garden.
A feature of the Garden is the beautiful Natural Fern Glades and the abundance of Native Flora which we proudly protect for future generations to enjoy - please help to preserve it.
Visitors to the Garden are reminded that the flowering season for Rhododendrons is September, October and November but the peak period is the end of October and early November. Mollis Azaleas are a special feature at this time as well.
The Garden is a delight in Autumn when so many deciduous trees look their best during April. The latest project is the planting of a Conifer Garden.

Bridal Veil Falls

by iandsmith

You can walk to the top of the falls from the carpark at Govetts Leap but, hey, it's not the same.
No, to experience the whole emotion you have to walk to the bottom. And, yes, it's a steep walk; steps....lots of them...are involved. (pic 5)
However, the rewards are manifold and you experience the joys of the journey and come upon different views on the descent.
The opening pciture gives you some idea of the height and the water, fragile in its descent, is prone to moving around at the whims of the wind.
They lie at the bottom of the stairs that go down from Govetts Leap out the back of Blackheath and it's the tallest drop in the whole Blue Mountains.
Allow two hours for the return walk.

SCENIC WORLD MOUNTAIN ATTRACTIONS..

by DennyP

When at Katoomba it wouldn't be a visit here without a ride on the Scenic Railway..(steepest incline of any railway in the world).This unique railway takes you to the floor of the Jamieson valley. also take the Scenic Skyway that travels across the Valley and has a glass floor for excellent viewing ..Then there is also the Scenic Cableway..this glass observation car brings you to and from the Valley Floor..all of these run about every fifteen minutes.there are also great walkways to use from railway to Cableway....I chose to do all three and got a combination ticket which was a good deal ..looking at each individual ride..
Open from 9am till 5 pm..daily

Shopping and Window Shopping

by Kate-Me

I found the shops in Katoomba quite interesting - a mixture of normal shops, with antique and curio shops, interesting restaurants and more. There was also some nice architecture - nicely painted stone buildings, almost Art Deco style.

WONDERFUL WALKS

by BerniShand

The Blue Mountains offer some wonderful walking trails ranging from easy to very dificult. the easy walks we took were well signposted, though the walk from Katoomba Falls Kiosk to the Scenic Railway which was supposed to take 40 minutes took us well over an hour
as it had rained for three days previously the trail was very wet and occasionally slippy, but the rain meant that the waterfall was very forceful
