We drove over to Robertson and visited the Illawarra Treetop Adventures. They have a beautiful 1.5 kilometer walk to the 500m of steel bridges 20-30 meters above ground in the rainforest. We walked out onto 2 swaying springboard cantilevers suspended 25 metres above the forest floor. We also climbed a spiral tower that rises to a breathtaking 45 metres above the forest floor. The tower was pure torture! Going up wasn’t bad since I just looked into the tower wall. Once we got to the top there was no shielding my irrational fear of heights! However, the beauty we witnessed at the top was worth risking everyone’s life.
I’m a very short person so I’m not used to being up high doing my normal day to day routine since I’m so close to the ground. I think I need to look into studies proving that short people are more afraid of heights than tall people.
During that trip we also found out that Ezekiel also has a fear of heights. He stuck very close to an adult at all times and once he even told Zeph, “I’m not scared . . . I just want to hold your hand!” It was very sweet since the children adore him so much and they obviously feel protected by him too!
