One of the region's most popular tourist attractions is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month.

The Illawarra Fly situtated at Knights Hill near Robertson receives 60,000 visitors annually and generates an additional $2 million dollars every year for the economy.

Back in 2005 Merlin Entertainment lodged a development application for the project which now includes the treetop walk and more recently a zip line.

The Illawarra Mercury reports the zipline features a series of integrated cables, allowing people to sail through the treetops.
