Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

heart-pumping adventures for the school holidays


Queensland Recreation Centres are running heart-pumping adventure activities during the school holidays for children eight years of age and older. Registration is already open for the December 2018/January 2019 school holidays at the Sunshine Coast - Monday 14 January 2019 to Friday 25 January 2019 - and Gold Coast - Monday 17 December 2018 to Friday 18 January 2019. Both Recreation Centres are running half day (three hour) and full day (six hour) activity sessions and the best news of all is that parents and families are welcome too. Great choice to have - either drop the children off or join in for some family fun!

Half day programme | 3 hours
9.00am to 12.00noon

Full day programme | 6 hours
9.00am to 3.00pm (includes lunch)

Participants are encouraged to bring a light, healthy snack for morning/afternoon tea. The QLD Recreation Centres' aim is to be 'nut free' in case of allergies. Please ensure any and all snacks do not contain nuts.

As these school holiday activity spots fill really quickly, please make sure you pre-register for sessions online - the relevant links are highlighted below.

Activities

These are some of the 'very special' activities available -

Abseiling and Quick Jumps - Gold Coast only

Lean back over the edge of the new abseil tower and look down if you dare! For the brave-of-heart, there is even a bungy-style 'quick jump' from the top platform. Abseiling and quick jumps are designed to build up confidence, whilst developing skills to tackle overhangs and a ten metre drop.

activities for the brave-of-heart


Canoe to David Fleay Wildlife Park - Gold Coast only

Paddle along the Tallebudgera Creek and then stop off for a BBQ lunch and a guided tour of David Fleay Wildlife Park.

Caving - Sunshine Coast only

I recently wrote about the Rock Climbing and Caving at the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre. The first-of-its-kind in Australia, this caving system is a replication of natural caving, allowing spelunkers to twist, turn, climb, squeeze and slide through a fun-filled maze of passages.
Don't forget the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre also has casual caving on Saturdays between 1.00pm and 4.00pm.

Giant Swing

For somebody, like me, who has a fear of heights, the giant swing is probably not my ideal, but for anybody looking for an adrenaline rush, the giant swing is the answer. You get hauled twenty metres into the air, pull the rip cord and swing - totally awesome! I can see the fun in itů.I'm just not too keen to try it! I'm quite happy to be part of the cheerleading squad on the sidelines though.

I am happy to cheerlead


High Ropes

Oops, another one that will call for my cheerleading skills! The high ropes courses allow participants to climb and traverse elements ten metres off the ground - this one definitely calls for 'walking the tightrope' skills.

Straight Up

Ok, I honestly have no idea what the straight up entails, but includes elements called fire cracker, centipede and possum glider (makes me think I might be in a zoo). Apparently, the straight up is a ten metre vertical rope and only the most skilled climbers make it to the top - now that's a challenge if ever I've heard one. Once, again I might have to leave this one to the eager beavers and stick to my cheerleading skills.
