Flex your adventurous spirit and test yourself mentally and physically with over 100 elevated obstacles with rope ladders, wobbly bridges, tunnels, cargo-nets and zip lines.

Tree Ropes Courses are situated in five unique locations in New South Wales: Central Coast, Newcastle, Sydney - The Hills, Western Sydney and Coffs Harbour.

There are no special skills or prior knowledge required, just bring along a sense of adventure and we will provide all the training and safety equipment you need to be an expert tree climber.

Participants must wear fully enclosed and secured footwear (sporting shoes are recommended); - For example, participants will not be allowed to undertake the Activities in sandals, Mary-Jane’s, thongs, ballet flats, slip-off, toed shoes etc.

If you want extra grip, bring gloves or purchase a pair from the office. Make sure you pack water, wear comfortable and appropriate clothing (no skirts, dresses or crop-tops while climbing), tie back long hair, remove jewellery and apply sunscreen and insect repellent.

We are open in all weather conditions (except lightning and extreme high winds). For your enjoyment of the courses, we only allow an allocated amount of people on the course at once, so it is highly recommended that you make a booking to avoid disappointment.

We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior (at least 30 minutes for Sydney - The Hills and Western Sydney) to your booked time to allow for parking, completing waiver forms, applying sunscreen/insect repellent, bathroom use and placing small personal items in the lockers provided.

For safety reasons you cannot carry anything with you on the courses. Please leave all your valuables at home. Lockers are provided for small personal items.  Once you are in your safety harness absolutely nothing is allowed in your pockets or hands, this includes jewellery, phones, wallets, keys, and cameras.

During school holidays, public holidays and weekends more time may be required as all parks get particularly busy. If you miss the start of your session, you may not be able to participate as the equipment you wear on the course is reserved for you.
