What To Expect
Explore the wonders of nature in the Southern Highlands area. In this gentle 1.5 km walk through the rainforest, you'll have the unique opportunity to experience the beauty of the region's native fauna and flora.
The walk commences on the rainforest floor and continues onto the elevated steel walkway. The walkway features two gently swaying cantilevered arms that would lead you into the forest canopy. It also features a central tower, raised nearly 50 meters off the forest floor. During the walk, you'll be able to see wombats, lyrebirds, echidnas, sugar gliders and the Dusky antechinus. As you reach the top, you'll be able to take in stunning views from the canopy to Lake Illawarra, and out to the South Pacific Ocean.
Guided sunrise walks take place on the second Saturday or every month, and early bird visitors are rewarded with a hot breakfast in the cafe upon return from the walk. Lunch and refreshments are available at Cafe 106 in the visitor's center, and courtesy buggies are available for those who need it.
The Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk is one of only a handful of steel canopy walks in the world, and is the only one in New South Wales. It was constructed with minimal impact to the natural forest floor and has many environmentally sustainable features including a rain water and septic tank system, recycling of waste and cooking products, a forest floor regenerations program and rainforest education programs.
