Minutes after take off, as we track towards the mountain ranges, keep a lookout for the tree top walking platform and viewing tower of the Illawarra Fly. Turning south, we continue to follow the rocky cliff edges of the Great Dividing Range towards Jamberoo mountain and the ancient aboriginal bushlands of Barren Grounds Nature Reserve. Then via the meandering mountain escarpment we visit the spectacular Gerringong and Carrington Falls. Onward towards Kangaroo Valley and some of the most beautiful countryside in Australia.
