Tue, 26th January 2021

This Summer, embark on the self-led Gruffalo Spotters Trail available every day of the school holidays, to discover Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and The Gruffalo, using the FREE Gruffalo Spotters 2 App! Bring each character to life through Augmented Reality and explore the latest features of the App including video recording, interactivity with the characters and selfie mode.

Then, every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday of the holidays, meet The Gruffalo himself onsite at Illawarra Fly! Available at 11:30am and 1:30pm, The Gruffalo will be at the start of the Treetop Walk to say hello, take photos and hand out special stickers*.

The App and trail are based on the best-selling picture book, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. Mixing animated characters with the real-world environment, children are encouraged to use their imagination, get exploring and feel immersed in a fun forest experience. All content captured can be saved to your device.

Want to win a Family Zipline Tour? Purchase any retail item from The Gruffalo range and go in the draw to win a Zipline Tour for your family! Select from a variety of merchandise including plush toys, The Gruffalo storybook, t-shirts and more!
