Discover Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk Adventure

During my daughter and I's road trip between Melbourne and Sydney, she and I made a stopover at Canberra. Little did I know that this detour would lead us to the Illawarra treetop walk adventure!

I found myself suspended twenty to thirty meters above the ground. I walked amidst towering trees that were taller than me. As I strolled along the one-and-a-half-kilometer path.

I looked at the panoramic landscape views that seemed to stretch beyond the horizon. And, I saw thrill-seekers whizz by on the ziplines adding intensity to the scene.

Immerse yourself and make memories in the beauty of the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk Adventure.

Tree Top Walk Illawarra NSW

My daughter and I made a road trip from Canberra, ACT to Sydney Airport.

On the way, she and I made a stop to go for a walk at the Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures in the Illawarra Ranges.

I found traveling with my daughter, I can always find myself experiencing something that I wouldn't have expected to do.

On this occasion, I walked downhill to the treetop's walk barriers. That is, where you start the walk through the treetops.

Fairy Forest

On the walk to the treetop walk, you'll find activities to entertain kids and adults. You can see the cute fairy homes in the Fairy Forest.

How high is Illawarra Fly?

My daughter and I were 20 to 30 meters off the ground high up in the treetops walk. And, there were trees still taller than us.

The walk through the treetops was 1.5 km.

The barriers were made of metal with see-through gaps. In the middle, there was a spiral staircase tower, Knights Tower.

My daughter climbed up to the top and took some photos.

I walked through all the barriers to the end. The last platform had metal with see-through gaps.

So, my daughter took some more photos of the landscape.

Besides these two photos, I photographed the images and edited them.

You can see the landscape photos I edited of her photos below.

Walk Back from the treetop walk or Phone to Arrange a Pick-Up.

At the end of the walk, there were stairs. You climb them upwards to walk towards the Visitor Centre and the exit.

On a sign, there was a phone number. And, you could call it to arrange a pick up for those that need help.

So, I used this service cause of my mobility impairments.

  6. That is pretty high up!!i would love an experience like this. I didn’t know there was such high trees in Australia. I hope it didn’t get too affected by the fires this year.

    • Thank you for your concern Flo. Yes, it’s pretty high up. I heard there were concern about fires in the Illawarra area, or they might have been precautionary warnings.
