Event description

Description

Ever wondered what it's like to be high in the trees navigating a rope course? Want to conquer your fear of heights and prove something to yourself? Ever dreamt of taking a thrilling flying fox ride down from the tall trees in the forest while yelling your head off??

Then this is for you!!

We will be tackling the awesome Treetops Adventure Park on Saturday 8th June!

So enrol now!!! - Registration CLOSES 31st MAY

Check out below what Treetops have to say about their park:

"TREETOP ADVENTURE PARK

Come and experience the iconic Australian bush like never before. Get up-close and personal with native Australian wildlife and magnificent Gum trees, as you climb, weave and fly through the tree tops on self-guided rope courses. 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."

It will be a fantastic day out with our mentors and to possibly meet some new deaf/hard of hearing teenagers!

Please read the below information from Treetops Adventure regarding what to do/bring on the day:

  • 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 shoes (sporting shoes are recommended); no exposed skin from the ankle down (skin must be covered by shoes not socks). 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. It can take approx. three hours to fully complete the adult/junior courses and up to two hours for the child courses.
  • Make sure you pack water, wear comfortable clothes, fully enclosed shoes, 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.
  • Please arrive at the park with plenty of time, ready to start your session at the booked time. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior (at least 30 minutes Sydney - The Hills and Western Sydney) to your booked time to allow for finding a car park, completing waiver forms, removing all jewellery, storing any remaining valuables in your car, all participants having used the bathroom, applying sunscreen/insect repellent, handing keys to office staff etc.
  • 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. If you are late this impacts on other participants. No refunds or part-refunds will be made if you are late and it is not possible to accommodate you.
  • For safety reasons you can’t carry anything with you on the courses and there are no lockers on site, so leave all your valuables at home and leave your keys at the TreeTops office. Once you are in your safety harness absolutely nothing is allowed in your pockets or hands, this includes jewellery, phones, wallets, keys and cameras.
