I bet you thought tree climbing was just for kids right? Well, professional tree climbing experts from all over the world head to Kapunda in the mid-north do their thing up and through the 25 to 30 metre trees at Davidson's Reserve this October.
The Red Bull Branched Out event is the largest tree-climbing event in the world. The Kapunda event will attract up to 150 international competitors and is being held for the first time in South Australia this October.
No matter the weather, the massive gum trees in Davidson Reserve will challenge tree climbers to hit as many targets as they can.
Climbers start at the top of the trees and descend through the canopy to hit targets set to make the climber move from one side of the canopy to the other in a series of swings and walks along the limbs. There will also be a night event where climbers will compete under lights to ascend and climb the trees head to head.
This is an exciting FREE event that's only just over an hour from Adelaide, so come and watch skilled tree climbers do what they do best in a thrilling aerial competition.
