Exploring the treetops
We have put together a list of some of the greatest treetop adventures that you will want to visit when you are passing through.
Don’t worry about the height and just enjoy the views and adventure!
Perfect for both the thrill seeker and nature lover, the self-guided ropes course lets you to choose which path to take – crossing wobbly bridges, balancing on tight ropes and crawling through nets.
Start easy at two metres or get your adrenaline pumping at 25 metres. It’s fun. It’s physical. And it’s mentally challenging two and a half hour obstacle course among Hollybank’s pine trees.
Take a walk through the treetops on the Illawarra Treetop Walk. A 1.5km walk through beautiful warm temperate rainforest with 500 metres of steel walkway nestled in the treetop canopy some 20-30 metres above the ground.
The walkway culminates in Knights Tower, a spiral tower that rises to a breathtaking 45 metres above the forest floor. Then there’s the thrills and challenges of two confronting swaying springboard cantilevers suspended 25 metres above the forest floor which takes you to the edge of the escarpment.
The O’Reilly’s Tree Top Walk consists of 9 suspension bridges up to 16 metres above ground. Enjoy a bird’s eye view from a deck 30 metres above ground in a fig tree over the walkway. The best time to see birdlife is early morning or late afternoon. The Tree Top Walk is free to experience at your own leisure.
This treetop walk is also part of the O’Reilly’s rainforest retreat. So you might want to consider packing up the caravan for a few day of luxury in the rainforest.
The Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk is an internationally recognised nature-based tourism attraction, giving you a bird’s eye view of some of the biggest timber giants on Earth – Western Australia’s majestic tingle trees. Climbing 40 metres into the forest canopy and meandering through the treetops for 600 metres, the walk trail is the first of its kind, designed to maximise views and minimise impact.
This peaceful and exhilarating experience can be encountered 15 minutes east of Walpole, on Western Australia’s South coast.
The Tree Top Walk sits within the Walpole-Nornalup National Park and Walpole Wilderness, offering spectacular views over densely forested hills. Descending to the boardwalks below to explore the Ancient Empire Walk, you’ll enter a grove of towering veteran tingle trees. These giant eucalypts are found nowhere else in Australia or on Earth and some have been standing for more than 400 years.
The 600 metre-long, 25 - 30 metre-high elevated walkway provides unrivalled views of the unique beauty of the region’s flora and fauna, from the rainforest floor up into the soaring heights of the treetops.
Don’t miss the 47 metre tall Spiral Tower and the cantilever perched above Young’s Creek – a truly exhilarating experience as you gently sway with the rainforest canopy.
All these great tree top adventures will have you in ore of mother nature and the spectacular forest views that come with.
