Tree top Challenge
Located inside Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the TreeTop Challenge will get your adrenaline pumping! With 80 huge TreeTop Challenges, including 11 insane ziplines – such as the awesome Croc Shock where you literally zipline over Crocodiles! – we guarantee you will have an unforgettable day of thrills, action and adventure.
You will encounter five large courses while traversing through pristine bushland, high up in the Currumbin treetops. If you pay close attention you may even catch a glimpse of a Tasmanian devil or be thrilled by the eerie howl of an alpine dingo as you pass high above their enclosure! After your experience at the TreeTop Challenge there is an abundance of other activities to engage in on ground level. Hand-feed kangaroos and snap a #kangarooselfie for Instagram and Facebook, connect with our brilliant Animal Trainers in the many wildlife shows, and sit down to a delicious meal in one of the many cafes.
The TreeTop Challenge is Australia’s first and largest adventure theme park in the trees and now has two huge locations across the Gold Coast, located at Mount Tamborine, between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and inside Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the southern end of the Gold Coast. The TreeTop Challenge is an aerial adventure activity for the young and old alike, with courses designed to test every fitness level. Spanning through acres of un-spoilt natural bushland a combination of rope and wire challenges provides the opportunity to conquer your fears, discover lush Australian bushland and have a whole lot of fun! You will hang about in the trees, climb ladders, balance on suspended bridges and jump on up to huge ziplines (flying foxes) – with many spanning over 120 metres! – it’s great fun, very high and best of all, it’s super safe!
All safety equipment (helmet, harness and gloves) is supplied and participants are fully instructed on its usage before beginning the course.
