January 25, 2019 Attraction No Comments Email Email

Scenic World is inviting visitors from near and far to celebrate Lunar New Year in the Blue Mountains this February, with a range of exciting activities on the agenda to usher in the Year of the Pig.

Scenic World’s front plaza will be a hive of activity from February 1 – 17 as the main forecourt is transformed into a vibrant table tennis arena for the annual Scenic World Ping Pong Pro tournament.

Visitors can test their reflexes daily from 11am to 2pm as staff and visitors of all ages hone their ping pong skills before venturing into the rainforest via the world’s steepest railway.

Traditional lion dancing artists will return to Scenic World on February 10 to showcase their talents in an acrobatic performance that will leave a lasting impression with choreographed stunts, drums, cymbals and more.

Scenic World’s Chief Experience Officer Amanda Byrne invited visitors to come and embrace the good fortune of Lunar New Year which is recognised as a tribute to health, happiness and prosperity in many Asian countries.

“We’re excited to welcome in the Year of the Pig with festivities that give visitors a chance to have some fun and gain an insight into the rich traditional culture of the many Asian cultures which celebrate Lunar New Year,” she said.

A range of activities and specials are available, including:

– Scenic World Ping Pong Pro tournaments held daily from 11am-2pm – Traditional lion dance on February 10 from 11am – Sticky char siu pork ribs available at EATS270 – Free special edition Lunar New Year coins for all retail purchases over $70

Asia remains a key market for Scenic World, led by China and Korea which have increased by 72% and 84% respectively over the past five years. While visitor numbers from China continue to grow, Korea remains the stand out performer, capturing an impressive 88% of all Korean visitors in NSW*.

Visitation from Indonesia and the Philippines has also increased over the same period, with visitor numbers up more than 128% and 77% respectively, while Vietnam visitation is on the rise.

Ms Byrne said the trends were in line with international visitor data which indicates continued growth in established markets such as China, and impressive growth out of emerging markets such as Korea and other parts of Asia.
