Royal Caribbean’s Radiance of the Seas docks in Port Kembla at the end of the month, and the region is gearing up for the historic event. While much of the focus will be on Wollongong’s CBD, the cruise ship passengers are expected to explore all our region has to offer, including Fitzroy Falls.

Ethan Yates, a local bushwalker, is eager for visitors to experience the national park.

“There is a lot of stuff to check out here,” he said.

Beth, an employee of the visitor centre, praised the national park. “I think their lives may be extended by a few years after they see the waterfall,” she said.
