My husband and I took our 6 year old son and his friend (also 6) to the Adventure Park today for my son's birthday. It was an awesome experience for both the boys. They both had an amazing time and we were so proud of them to see them overcoming the fears they had at different stages when the felt they couldn't do a particular part of the course to continue on and then go back up on the course they'd been frightened on to do it again with confidence.Staff were lovely and dealt really nicely with young children. Instructions regarding the equipment was thorough but also delivered in a manner the young kids would understand.

I was thrilled with the support and calmness of staff. My son got frightened and one of the staff was amazing and calmed him. She then told a joke to make his laugh and distract him. I saw two staff come to the rescue of two juniors in our party and they were so calm and were fantastic. I will definitely spread the word and loved the day.

The TreeTop Adventure Park provides a whole day of entertainment. What's great is that after the initial training, the staff are hands off and you're free to wander through the different courses as you like. What's also great is that the courses progress from easy to difficult allowing you to learn as you go. TreeTop Adventure Park is more than just strings suspended above a forest, there's ladders to climb, flying foxes, balancing beams, suspended bars, wobbly wooden planks - you name it, they've got everything in the world of obstacle courses!

What a great idea for kids. I bought my twin girls there and while one is adventruours the other is not. There are 3 levels of courses for the smaller kids and they can't progress until they have mastered the first level which I think is great. The staff are amazing and very patient with the kids that get scared. They really know how to interact with kids. Highly recommend this place to all kids

Our group had an awesome experience! All the kids loved every bit of the park and challenged themselves, encouraging each other - it was beautiful to watch! The staff were all wonderful, having heaps of fun and completely professional and in control.

I used this experience to build my netball squad for the finals series. I learned a lot about them and what made them tick. I would recommend this kind of activity for sure - the girls were excellent, and the fighting spirit I was trying all season to bring out, definitely made an appearance. Hopefully we can bring that onto court and do well.

Great adventure! Excellent challenges! We went as a corporate team with no one having done this before. At the end the team could not stop talking about the fun and excitement they had throughout the adventure park courses.
Visited Sydney, 14/08/2015
The staff were extremely friendly and professional from the point of booking to the climb day itself. My team thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, and as a result, the experience has bonded the team further and given us the opportunity to learn more about our strengths and weaknesses.

A great family experience. My older kids had fun. My younger ones were challenged but learnt to conqueror their doubts & give it a go. Both benefited & we had a great family bonding time. Strongly recommend it as a family outing.

My 11 year old neice and I did the challenge together and it was great for both of us. Just the right level of challenge and the staff were really helpful. My daughter (4) and other neice (8) did the kids course and again had a great time. The staff were really helpful and supportive with the younger kids. We went on a weekday outside school holidays so it wasn't crowded either.

This place is great for the little kids as well as the big kids. The first stage is wonderful for the smaller children. They are enjoying themselves while learning about balance etc. To see them out in the fresh air being energetic is worthwhile. A kids party held there would be a very nice change.

What an awesome opportunity for some team bonding for our Support Crew for our upcoming Virgin Australia 1,000 K’s 4 Kids Bike Ride in September. Lots of the group did not know each other until the day and the opportunity to swing through the trees together really helped to encourage a great bond. The staff were so professional and friendly to everyone involved and the opportunity to use the Tree Hut for our lunch and Crew Briefing about the Ride was awesome – we all felt like we were sitting above the ground in the trees! Everyone has commented on what an awesome day it was and appreciated so much the opportunity to get together and really get to know each other. I would truly recommend it to any group looking to create an awesome Team Challenge in a truly amazing environment.

I was not keen to do this with my child but so happy I had to do it. It was good to be able to share an experience like this rather than be a spectator like I usually am. I am definitely coming back!

My two children had a blast. They both encountered challenges that they found difficult but were both able to overcome them and this was a major boost to their confidence. We had an amazing time. Thank you

This was (by far) the BEST experience and birthday party my 6 year old has had. I don't know how I am going to top this! The kids were having fun from the word 'go' until they didn't want to go home afterwards! Can't recommend it highly enough.

Visited yesterday with 12 yr old twins, an 18 yr old French exchange student, and 1 nearly 50, barely fit mum! Had a great time! Lots of levels for lots of ages & capabilities. 17 flying foxes amongst very varied and challenging climbs--nets, tunnels, planks, etc. 3 levels for my 12 yr olds. The black level is for 16 yrs plus, but I'm sure the twins would have handled it better than me! (since I had to be 'retrieved' mid-way through, dangling in the centre of a flying fox run!). There's a lovely little course for littlies, too. People not climbing in your group are welcome to walk along & take photos. I totally suggest you start as early as possible, as there's a degree of wait time between climbs when it gets crowded. We climbed for 4 hrs! We will be back!

For our group of 3 oldies it was a real challenge but what an achievement we felt when we finished. Karen & Dillon were fantastic I am quite sure I would not have finished the green course(probably not even started) without the exceptional help of Dillon . THANK YOU!

I’m 50 and my husband is 53. We took our two sons aged 19 and 22 and a girlfriend, 19. I was worried it would not be challenging enough for them but the course provided plenty of challenge for all of our abilities. It was great having different level courses so that you had the opportunity to do just what you could do. I thought the price was incredibly good value for the time we spent there and compared to our last adventure in Noumea it was a lot cheaper and I felt a lot safer.

It was so much fun. The kids discovered their confidence early. Gerrard gave us a friendly and patient safety brief.

We are second time visitors with our two girls. Again we were impressed with the care and assistance provided to us both before we arrived when we called with enquiries, and by the staff on the course who encouraged and supported the kids to overcome their fears. Please keep up the great work!

Absolutely a great day! Staff are great, rates are reasonable & facilities are amazing. To see my sons gain confidence & esteem, when scared of heights was fantastic. Thankyou to the male staff member with the beard & red hat, that always came to the rescue when my eldest was scared or stuck.

We went with our 5 1/2 & 4 1/2 yr old daughters who had a fantastic time! Our eldest wants to take her best friend to the Sydney one for her 6th Birthday next year. The staff were all very friendly and attentive to all the kids (not just ours) needs. The lady at the desk, the man who put their harnesses on and made them feel very comfortable and to Olivia & Lauren who were great. Thanks again. :)

As a parent observing a party of 12 children it was wonderful to see the kids rise to the challenge. We had a mixture of kids that had climbed before and some first timers and initially we saw them all respond to the challenges with varying levels of confidence. However as they progressed and their confidence rose so did their self esteem. They were so proud of themselves and what they were able to do. They all really enjoyed the experience.

It's a great location, lovely staff, worked really well for us as a family. The older boys boys (8&9) climbed and the toddler watched the boys & played in the fantastic playground. Even in the cold & heavy rain, we all loved it.

Wow, what a great venue for a birthday party! The boys loved it, and the amazing new TreeHut was perfect for cake after climbing. All of the staff were great with the kids, and really helpful. I want to come back and do the adults courses with the mums! Thank you all for making it a great day for the kids and the parents.

TreeTop Adventure Park was more than excellent it was magnificent! The instructors encouraged me to overcome my fear of heights and it was an amazing view and so much fun.

The best high ropes course I've ever been on! The staff were amazing and the facility was beautiful. We interacted with a few members of the staff who were all very helpful and high spirited. Our instructor Danny was amazing when teaching us before climbing and happily answered all questions… It was the best adventure experience I've ever done. I'm definitely going to come back with all of my friends so I can complete the black course.

Realised the capabilities of certain people in my group when the need was upon them (way out of their comfort zone). Acknowledged the team work between family members that normally don't socialise/get-on. Definitely brought my family together.
