Adventure Park Details

The Sunshine Coast Tree Top Challenge Adventure Park is surrounded by eight acres of the most luxurious green rainforest. Those in the know claim it to be much like the dense green of the Daintree in Far North Queensland and in my humble opinion could quite easily compete. I felt like I was participating in an episode of 'Survivor', it was that jungly!

Are you sure? Start of the 'Black Diamond extreme'


All the challenges at the Adventure Park are self-paced, which means you can complete each circuit at your own speed. The first two Green courses are the 'easy' ones and designed for every member of the family to enjoy from the littlies to the adults. These two courses have been created so that adventurers can get a 'feel' for the rainforest surrounds, whilst building their self-confidence of being up so high. The third course steps adventurers' involvement up a notch with mammoth ziplines, ninja games, soaring heights and opportunities to face personal fears at every turn. Hair-raising stuff?

Only the brave ...


Should adventurers cope all too easily with the first two course's obstacles, then the ultimate final two Black circuits await. Tree Top Challenge Adventure Park on the Sunshine Coast believe that these final two courses are the absolute highest and totally mind-blowing, rope courses in the whole of Australia. With this in mind, the two Black super challenges have been designed for ages fourteen and over, knowing that adventurers will need to step out of their comfort zones and possibly ... even beyond!

Gladiator style


All visitors to the Tree Top Challenge at The Big Pineapple can explore the first three humungous courses as many times as they wish, as long as they are aged eight and over and can reach the minimum height requirement. The ultimate two extreme Black Diamond courses are only accessible to adventurers who can reach 180cm to the palms of their hands, with both hands stretched above their head. Should children under the age of fourteen achieve this necessary height requirement, they will be permitted to attempt the Black Diamond courses, as long as they have purchased an 'adult' ticket.
