getting high in a rain forest

A short detour off the Great Ocean Road is the Otway temperate rain forest gully, the most westerly temperate rain forest in Australia. It receives an average of 2 metres rainfall per annum. The Otway Fly is a steel walkway 600m long and 25m above ground so you can walk in the top of the canopy.

Very impressive to be so high up,and rather alarming as the tree tops sway and the whole walkway does the same. The 24m cantilever platform at the end, with no visible means of support was terrifying.
