This has now ended, explore more great events here or buy tickets here.

Hop into Illawarra Fly these April school holidays for an epic Easter adventure on The Gruffalo Spotters Trail! Journey through our Treetop Walk with your family and friends, to find all 5 characters from the classic Julia Donaldson storybook, The Gruffalo!  

Skip and stroll through the ‘deep dark woods’ like Mouse, wriggle around and hiss like Snake or sneak about the Treetop Walk on your tiptoes like Fox! Once you’ve spotted each character, bring them to life using the FREE Augmented Reality app – ‘The Gruffalo Spotters AUS’ – by holding it up to the special markers on the Treetop Walk to activate Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and The Gruffalo! Watch as each character enters your world and then take your picture beside them!

All guests to Illawarra Fly will also be able to enter our special Gruffalo prize pack which includes The Gruffalo storybook, DVD, plush toys and more! Be sure to follow the Illawarra Fly Facebook page to keep an eye out for the lucky winner announcement on Wednesday 6th May!

Don’t want the fun to end? Why not experience the highest Zipline Tour in Australia? With three flights, two suspension bridges and four cloud stations, gain a unique perspective of the rainforest as you soar through the treetops! Suitable for ages four and up, it’s the perfect “my first zip” experience and something the whole family can enjoy!
