Me and the wife played the guessing game of how many bikes there would be at the Pie shop. She said 5, I said 20-30. When we pulled in there must have been at least 50+ bikes there today. And why not the weather was perfect for riding.
After a fantastic Pepper Steak pie at the pie shop it was onto the Illawarra Fly. This is a tree top walk nestled on the Illawarra escarpment high above the townships below. The walk through the trees was some 30 meters up off the forest floor with the highest point being the spiral tower which was 50 meters above the ground. All of this some 700 meters above sea level. The views here are quite spectacular.

The views out over the escarpment were fantastic. You could see all the way up to Wollongong and beyond to the Royal National park and all the way out to the Tasman Sea. Couldn't see any kiwis though.
The tree below was covered in some weird looking moss type thing. It made for a good photo.
After finishing up at the tree top walk there was a nearby water fall that I wanted to have a look at. We had a nice afternoon tea at the picnic area at Carrington Falls. Georgia took her shoe's off and wandered into Kangaroo River just above the falls. Luck she didn't go over because the falls are 90 meters high. The river then flows on through guess where? Yep Kangaroo Valley despite its name it has some awesome motorcycle roads through it.
