Tree-rific Time in Yanchep
Trees Adventure is Australia’s Number 1 Tree Ropes and Zip lining Experience
A brand new Trees Adventure course has just opened within Yanchep National Park (45 minutes north of Perth), the second of its kind in WA and the seventh nationwide.
Anyone over the age of 4 can spend 2 hours of fun navigating through the Jarrah and Paperbark trees, high above the local kangaroos that call Bull Banksia Oval their home.
If you are not familiar with Yanchep National Park, the staff at the entry point will provide you with a map and point you in the right direction. An entry fee is required for Yanchep National Park and is not included in the Trees Adventure ticket.
NOTE: If you a resident of the City of Wanneroo, you can get an Annual Park Pass for just $15!
You need to arrive 30 minutes before your session. After you have checked-in, the instructors will get you geared up in a harness, gloves and helmet. Your 2 hour session includes a safety briefing and shown how to use the equipment before having a test run, as it is a self-guided experience, you need to complete the test run before you can do the real thing!
Trees Adventure Yanchep has 7 challenging courses ranging from 2m low easy courses for your mini adventurers, all the way to 10m high for the adrenaline junkies! All children under the age of 13 need to be climbing with an adult. All courses are colour coded; Yellow 4-7 years, Green 8+, Blue 8+, Red 10+ and Black 13+.
You get two hours to do as many of the courses as you can, we completed 3 courses during our session, some of the faster kids managed 4.
All courses begin at The Home Tree, each course is made up of wobbling wooden bridges, tight ropes, cargo nets, ziplines and more! We opted to start at a blue course, once we got the hang of clipping on and off the ropes we powered through the course! The ziplines were definitely a firm favourite!
Next, we headed for a blue course which was equally as challenging.
Then we were crazy enough to try the red course 😅 the red was a huge step up from the blue and green courses! Lucky our 2 hours was over because I wasn’t game enough to try the black!
Although you are clipping yourself on and off the ropes, you’re always locked onto a rope. Our group had a couple of falls, the kids were all able to get themselves back up and on continue on with the course. If you get really suck you can yell for help and an instructor will winch you to safety.
Throughout the 7 courses, there are 15 ziplines and 70 challenges! Not only is Trees Adventure lots of fun, but it is also a great confidence builder for kids!
We had a tree-ific time and will be back for sure!!!!
