The Gruffalo Spotters Trail

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

Visit Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures these school holidays, and experience The Gruffalo Spotters Trail with Summer Storytime! Taking your Gruffalo escapade to the next level, Summer Storytime will be hosted by one of our very own Rangers in our newly decorated Kids Corner, where children can hear the story of The Gruffalo at select times throughout the day.  

Then, continue the fun as you 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! Bring the characters to life using the new and free Augmented Reality app – ‘The Gruffalo Spotters AUS’ – and 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!

All guests to Illawarra Fly, will also have the opportunity to enter into the draw to win a special Gruffalo prize pack. The lucky winner will be announced on our Facebook page, Wednesday 15th January.
