A classroom… in the forest!
The Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk is an innovative way to explore and learn in an exciting environment, allowing the students to be outdoors among nature. It's a classroom...in the forest! The Treetop Walk allows students to experience the rainforest in comfort and safety, from a variety of educational perspectives.
The walk is a 1.5 km loop track with 1,000 metres of ground based walking, allowing the students to investigate the rainforest at the forest floor and a further 500 metres of elevated steel walkway. This walkway rises 20-30 metres above ground, offering students the chance to explore the rainforest canopy. This elevated steel walkway also features two gently swaying cantilever and a central tower known as Knights Tower, which stands at an impressive 45 metres above ground and provides a bird’s eye view over Illawarra Escarpment and out to the Pacific Ocean.
The visitors centre is a perfect place to regroup after the walk, with plenty of tables and chairs for the students to complete class worksheets and a large open field to sit and enjoy lunch!
