Social Responsibility

Scenic World is proud to support the local community we live in and protect the Blue Mountains for future generations to enjoy. Our social responsibility program, Scenic World Shared, is driven by many voices including passionate employees, our Managing Director, and valued partners.


We care deeply about the environment and community in which we live and work, and we’re committed to sustaining it for all to enjoy. We want to create a lasting impact so we can share our vibrant community and environment with others – today and tomorrow.


Scenic World is a third generation family business operating in Katoomba for over 70 years. The Shared program builds on our decades of local philanthropy with a framework for future giving.


We want to empower our community to thrive, which is why we’re investing 3% of our profit via diverse partnerships to do good for our local community and World Heritage-listed environment.



Established in 1945, Scenic World began with Harry Hammon’s entrepreneurial vision to transform a former coal mine into an iconic tourist attraction. With the closure of Katoomba Colliery in 1945, Harry recognised an opportunity to innovate, converting old coal skips and existing rail track into a passenger train, creating what is still today the world’s steepest passenger train.

Today, Scenic World continues to be owned and operated by the Hammon Family, offering award-winning experiences to over a million visitors annually.


Scenic World is owned and operated by Hammons Holdings Pty Ltd (ABN 38 000 600 475), a third-generation, family held and operated Australian business.

Scenic World is Australia’s most visited privately owned tourism attraction. Scenic World is led by Manager Director Anthea Hammon and is one of the largest employers in the Blue Mountains, employing more than 160 local residents.
