The Gruffalo Trail Images (5)

Embark on our Treetop walk and explore 'The Gruffalo Spotters Trail’ using the free Augmented Reality app (The Gruffalo Spotters AUS)! Look for clues across the walk to locate each character from the storybook then use the special markers and app to activate Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and The Gruffalo! Watch as they enter your world, then jump beside them to snap a picture.  

Along the way, experience breathtaking coastal views over the Illawarra Escarpment on our beautiful 1.5km walk through nature. Featuring 500 metres of elevated walkway, raised an incredible 20-30 metres above the forest floor, you truly feel like you’re part of the canopy. This walkway also features two gently swaying cantilever and a spiral tower that rises an incredible 45 metres to stunning views.

Want to add even MORE fun and adventure? Enjoy our Zipline Tour and soar on three flights, walk across two suspension bridges and stop at four cloud stations! 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!
