What could be better these school holidays than experiencing nature with a newfound perspective from the Illawarra Rainforest?
Take in breathtaking views over the Illawarra Escarpment and a beautiful 1.5km walk through nature, miles away from any cares. With 500 metres of elevated walkway, you truly feel like you’re part of the canopy, raised an incredible 20-30 metres above the forest floor. This walkway also features two gently swaying cantilever and a central spiral tower that rises 45 metres to those panoramic views.
The Treetop Walk also features ‘The Gruffalo Spotters Trail’ where using the free Augmented Reality app – ‘The Gruffalo Spotters AUS’ – and special markers across the walk, you can bring to life each character from the storybook! Activate Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and The Gruffalo, and watch as they enter your world, then jump beside them to snap a picture.
Looking for even MORE adventure? Visitors will also be able to enjoy the Zipline Tour, gaining a unique perspective of the rainforest as they soar through the treetops and immerse themselves in nature like never before. Journey across two suspension bridges, stop at four cloud stations and soar on three flights, one of which is 106 metres long! Please note, our Zipline Tour has limited capacity due to social distancing, so be sure to book online to secure your spot – and save money too!
