These school holidays let the kids loose amongst some of Australia’s most incredible rainforest at Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.
Nestled in treetop canopy more than 20m above ground level, Illawarra Fly is one of only four canopy walks in the world, all of which are located in Australia. This 1500m walk journeys through lush forest before coming to a spiral tower named Knight’s Tower standing 45m high, and continuing to two swaying springboard cantilevers suspended 25m above the forest floor.
Kicking off just in time for the July School Holidays, Illawarra Fly has announced the iFly program beginning with Erth’s Petting Zoo from July 5-7.
Erth is an internationally renowned Australian theatre company that create incredible, large scale, life like puppets of Australian mega-fauna. Erth will bring their celebrated show 'Petting Zoo' to the Illawarra Fly for a series of performances.
Petting Zoo is a unique show allowing audience interaction with prehistoric Australian dinosaurs in a Zoo like environment. Kids and parents can pat the lifelike young dinosaurs which are lively, animated and affectionate.
The star of the show is the Dwarf Allosaurus (155 million years old), a fearsome carnivore at the top of the food chain with dramatic and abundant teeth to rip into its prey. Its size is similar to T Rex.
