Starting the Tree Climb Childrens Course


The Adelaide Parklands have sometimes come under criticism in the past for being under utilised. It's a silly comment which could just as easily be applied to a car park, a train station, or Adelaide Oval. But that criticism no longer applies to Kurrangga Park in the south parklands.

The opening of Tree Climb in Kurrangga Park at the corner of Greenhill Road and Unley Road has brought Adelaide families flocking to this part of the parklands. While the area nearby was already popular for BMX bike riders at the recently upgraded track, on weekends and school holidays hundreds of avid tree climbers are now swinging through the parklands canopy like Tarzan never did.

The Grand Course at Adelaide Tree Climb is Higher and More Challenging


Tree Climb is a fantastic way to use the parklands without significant impact on the environment. Cables and ropes have been carefully strung between the treetops, creating a series of courses for tree climbers of all ages to test their agility and stamina. It has been designed to leave no lasting footprint on the environment.

Visitors to Tree Climb Adelaide have a choice of two courses. The Grand Course (minimum height of 135cm) takes around two hours to complete including mandatory safety training and includes four progressively challenging obstacle courses set in the treetops, featuring zip lines (flying foxes) and an exhilarating Tarzan swing, flying carpet and trapeze.

The Children's Course (minimum height of 100cm) at Tree Climb Adelaide takes around an hour and 20 minutes to traverse. It includes 24 tree top activities, allowing climbers to progressively complete the Yellow course, then Orange and finally challenge themselves on the Blue course. Both Grand and Children's courses have crew handy to offer guidance and training, while back on ground level parents and grandparents cheer on the enthusiastic climbers. Please note that kids 14 years or under must be supervised by a parent or responsible adult.

An education trail is also integrated into the treetops in association with the City of Adelaide and the Adelaide Park Lands Authority, giving all visitors a unique chance to learn about the history of Adelaide and the surrounding Parklands.

Pick Up Coffee and Snacks at the Eco Pod Hut


When I visited activities were in full swing. Visitors to Tree Climb usually book online, then show up at the eco pod hut base to pick up their safety equipment. There's a cafe serving hot coffee and other drinks and snacks, and you can also book your climb or buy climbing accessories there.

Everywhere I looked, parents and grandparents were gazing in the air or holding up phones to capture a photo of their young ones as they navigated the treetops. The kids were loving it, faces intense with concentration as they powered through the Tree Climb course onto their next challenge.
