Where is it: Cnr Tamborine Mtn Rd & Cedar Creek Falls Rd, North Tamborine
Why we love it: A fantastic and fun challenge for the whole family!
Tell me more: The idea of climbing and zip-lining through the treetops was always going to be a winner for our kids (they love climbing), but we didn’t have any idea how fun that it would be for us too! Mount Tamborine’s Treetop Challenge is a fantastic activity for kids and adults alike from 3 years old!
Just one of the fantastic activities to take part in at Thunderbird Park – an adventure park in the Gold Coast hinterland – Treetop Challenge consists of a number of different courses strung through the trees of this lovely part of forest. The courses are made of high-wire rope, wooden ladders and platforms and various suspension bridges. The little guys (from 3 – 8) get their very own challenges that are perfectly suited to kids of this age, while the bigger guys (from 8 years if they meet the height requirements) get to enjoy the adult course! Both courses involve the same fun challenges – climbing and zip-lining through magnificent forest and trees. A short safety session and explanation of how to complete the challenges prior to undertaking the climbs will ensure that you can have fun safely and the courses step up in difficulty so that you can tackle the challenges that are best suited for you.
Different courses are available and a graded so that you can challenge yourself based on your ability and confidence. The basic courses can be completed without too much exertion but they still offer lots of fun and the zip lines are bound to get your adrenaline flowing!
This is a wonderful family activity! Our little guys (aged 3 and 6 when we visited) went along to their special Junior course, while we went along with our oldest boy (8yo) to the adult course, and we're sure that they we all had equally as much fun! Both of our little guys completed all of their challenges on the Junior Course and they absolutely loved it! Our 8 year old met the height requirements to take on the adult course and completed all the activities without too much trouble, there was one challenge that used every bit of his height! After a few of the challenges he was overtaking us parents! We had a fantastic day out here at the Treetop Challenge – it offered us fun and excitement outdoors, a satisfying challenge and an opportunity to get amongst nature all at the same time!Website: https://www.treetopchallenge.com.au/
