TreeTop Adventure Park
Kids always enjoy tree houses and tree climbing, but imagine having the freedom to swing and scramble from treetop to treetop like a monkey! This adventure park in the beautiful Ourimbah State Forest has giant rope spiderwebs, flying foxes, Tarzan ropes, tunnels, tightropes and swinging bridges, all suspended in the trees. There are sure to be ripples of nerves and excitement as the kids (and you!) don your safety helmets. Following a safety induction course you’ll be off, scrambling up into the trees. There are different levels of difficulty depending on age, confidence and ability, but everyone is attached to cables, so children as young as 3 years of age can join in.

■ The trees! Make sure, while you are having fun climbing and flying around, you take time to admire the forest around you.
You are probably puzzled that someone has been allowed to build an adventure park in the middle of a state forest, but TreeTop Adventure Park was built under partnership with Forests NSW. The structures are specially designed not to harm the trees. The platforms were built without drilling into the trunks or branches, and all the structures allow room for the trees to grow without restrictions.
■ Children aged from 3 to 10 years are attached to a continuous belay safety system which they don’t disconnect throughout the climb.
