Visit Illawarra Fly this Australia Day long weekend for some true blue Aussie fun! Try your hand at our thong throwing competition and see if you can reach our esky’s positioned across our open field to win prizes. Watch all the fun and games from our outdoor seating area at our own Café 106 - and cheer on your family and friends! Plus enjoy a sausage sizzle with proceeds going to our RFS and of course the breathtaking Treetop Walk which allows incredible views over the Illawarra escarpment.

Not only are we celebrating with a little Aussie competition, but families can also follow our Gruffalo Spotters Trail adventure. New for this summer The Gruffalo Spotters Trail takes your visit to the next level, as you search the Treetop Walk to bring the characters to life using the free augmented reality app – ‘The Gruffalo Spotters AUS’. Identify special markers across the Treetop Walk to activate Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and The Gruffalo! Watch as the storybook characters enter your world, and jump beside them to get your photo together!

No matter your age, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures this Australia Day Long Weekend! For tickets and further information, click here and book online to save!
