Take the wet
LOOKING FOR A RAINY DAY DISCOUNT?
The Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk has launched a Wet Weather
Challenge to encourage people to take on the wet weather and
experience the Fly in a whole new way.
On their Wet Weather Challenge days they have discounted the
regular price of admission by 50 per cent.
The Fly is one of Australia's premier rainforest experiences, a
unique elevated steel walkway on the edge of the forest fall line with
views over the Illawarra Escarpment to the Pacific Ocean.
When it's raining the visitors get to experience the rainforest in all
its glory surrounded by mist and rain, the way nature intended.
To find out when the Wet Weather Challenge is on you simply
have to 'Like' the Fly on Facebook as this is where you will find out if
it's raining at the Fly.
Often it will be raining at the Fly and nowhere else, or even
raining everywhere else but the Fly, so make sure you visit their
Facebook page and 'like' them to keep up to date with the Wet
Weather Challenge. http://www.facebook.com/illawarrafly.
Open every day from 9am to 5pm, the Illawarra Fly is just
outside Robertson in the Southern Highlands.
