Robertson, NSW. Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk ***3stars

How do you like Heights?

Back to Robertson again and heading to the Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk. At least, I know the way now and shouldn’t get lost again today, just stay on the Illawarra Highway for the 35km from Moss Vale. Quiet day today but there’s quite a breeze blowing and the view to the coast is a bit hazy and overcast.

     

The Illawarra Fly Treetop walk is 500 metres long with an average height of 25m while the viewing tower, Knights Tower is 45 metres high. There are two cantilevers that extend from the walkways. How would you go climbing the tower or stepping out onto the cantilever as it sways and vibrates?

I made it, even though the strong wind was a bit scary on the cantilever

and I was so glad of the railing on the tower!

My Southern Highlands has a great range of special offers available for an excellent range of activities, food and even accommodation while your visiting the southern highlands, which was really appreciated. Mittagong Tourist Information has the vouchers or there’s an app to download for iphone or android. The voucher for the Fly gave you 25% off which was great.  If your travelling on the Jamberoo Mountain Rd check out the Jamberoo Lookout where you might catch a similar view for free but it’s easy to miss! Now, how about some scones?
