Illawarra Fly Zip Line Tours

Located in the luscious Southern Highlands Rainforest, the Illawarra Fly Zip Line Tour is the highest of its kind in all of Australia. Perfect for adults and children alike, the zip line experience is made up multiple elevated platforms, suspension bridges and cable spans all located 35-metres above the forest floor.

Under the guidance of experienced zip line tour guides, you'll be taken on an exciting journey that combines sightseeing with adventure. As you zip through the treetops you'll be treated to views of the Pacific Ocean, the rainforest canopy and surrounding region, while also gaining a unique perspective on this gorgeous rainforest.

The experience lasts for 2.5 hours and also includes a scenic Treetop Walk to enjoy either before or after the zip line tour. The walk stretches for 1.5 kilometres and traverses native rainforest along a steel walkway 50 metres above the ground.

For one of the best and most memorable experiences in New South Wales book your spot on an Illawarra Zip Line Tour with Treetop Walk here.


  • 2.5 hour experience which includes 1 hour of zipline activity
  • 5 cloud stations
  • 3 flights
  • 2 suspension bridges
  • Full instruction from qualified guides
  • Interpretation on the forest, creatures and history of the Illawarra region
  • Access to the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk – The award winning treetop canopy walk featuring two swaying cantilevers and the 45 metre tall Knight’s Tower


  • The Treetop Walk is open from 9am to 5pm except Christmas Day
  • Zipline Tours depart every half an hour between 9am to 3.30pm (some tours are only available during the week or over the weekends)
  • Your Zipline Tour booking is for a specific time & date. You must arrive no later than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time. If your Zipline tour departs after 3pm, please arrive 1.5 hours earlier to ensure you have time to enjoy the area


  • You will need to have 1.5 hours in your day to be able to participate in the Zipline Tour, this is from the time your tour is scheduled to start to your return to the Visitor Centre, as the course consists of 3 cabled Ziplines and 2 cabled Suspension Bridges tucked amongst our beautiful Rainforest
  • The 1.5 hour Zipline tour breaks down into a 20-25 minute safety briefing & harness fit with the Guides, a 5-10 minute walk down a medium grade track to get to the start of the Zipline Course, up to 45 minute clipped in enjoying the treetops from a different perspective and remaining with your group from departure to touchdown, and then finally about 10 minute walk back up to the Visitor Centre, or continue directly on to the self-guided Treetop Walk
  • If you wish to do the Treetop Walk (which is inclusive of your ticket price) you will need to allow at least 2.5 hours in your day to enjoy both activities
  • Please note last entry to the Treetop Walk is 4.15pm, so if you are participating in a Zipline Tour any time after 2.30pm, you will not have time to do the Treetop walk after your Zipline Tour. Therefore, plan to arrive with enough time before your scheduled afternoon Zipline Tour to complete the 1 hour self-guided walk prior to Ziplining
