Upon leaving the Visitor Centre and heading down to the Treetop Walk you’ll embark on a short but lovely bushwalk, that’s very easy to negotiate. A cleared path takes you from the open land where you left your car, into the dense bushland that forms the Illawarra Escarpment.
The path meanders through the bush where you will start to hear the local birdlife calling out to say hello – you may even catch sight of one of the resident wombats or echidnas. The short walk through the bush is a great way to introduce you to the plant life that you’ll see from above on the Treetop Walk.
For lovers of longer bushwalks make the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk just one of your stops in the region which is renowned for its many and varied bushwalks. Make a day of it – explore the rainforest from above with us, then get down and explore it close up. Check out Fitzroy Falls – along the road from the Highlands to Kangaroo Valley – from the top of the falls there’s a number of bushwalking trails along the escarpment to lookouts.
Nearby Minnamurra Falls, Carrington Falls and Belmore Falls also make for pretty walks.

Rise early for this unique sunrise rainforest experience with a spectacular Treetop Walk Sunrise Tour. Take advantage of the beautiful morning light the sun casts over the landscape as it rises – truly magic. Greet the birds and local wildlife whilst taking in the sweeping panoramic sunrise views of the forest, some 20-30 metres above the ground in the treetop canopy.
Situated 710 metres above the sea, the stunning views take in everything from the rainforest canopy to the Royal National Park and over Lake Illawarra and out to the South Pacific Ocean. Fancy climbing for an even better view? Make you way up Knights Tower at a breathtaking 45 metres above the forest floor. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to snap the perfect panoramic picture!
