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.
