Once across the bridge, there is a 12-zip-line journey through the forest via aerial zips that criss-cross the gorge.


The geography of the gorge dictates that you are above the treetops for large parts of the run, and enter a corridor in the foliage at either end. In total, there are a series of 12 zip lines from 52 feet (15.8 metres) to 328 feet (100 metres) in length, three aerial walkways, a tree house and two suspension bridges. Your route offers a bird's-eye view of the flora and fauna in the rainforest, the sounds of the numerous bird species that inhabit this area, and a gorge filled with exotic plants and large fruit trees, prominent boulders, a rock pool, and vines, mosses and lichen. Complimentary water on the course and a certificate of bravery upon completion of the tour are provided. Your tour concludes with an approximately 35-minute drive back to the pier.
