There are five Tree Top Adventure Park locations: Western Sydney, The Hills, Newcastle, Central Coast and Coffs Harbour. Each location is different but shares the same basic principles.

TreeTop Adventure Park has seperate courses for kids and juniors/adults, with the children’s course suitable for little ones aged 3 – 9. The next group, “Juniors/Adults”, consists of four courses for participants aged 10 + who are at least 1.4m tall.

We have previously visited the TreeTop Adventure Park in Western Sydney – you can read about it here.

Children’s courses
While all TreeTop Adventure Parks have similar difficulty levels the average height of the challenges at TreeTops Sydney – The Hills is 10m, and supervising adults must stay on the perimeter path rather than there being paths underneath the courses allowing on-ground adult supervisors to be close as there is at other TreeTops parks. These two factors makes the TreeTops Sydney – The Hills slightly more challenging for younger or less confident kids.

Participants must wear fully enclosed shoes (sporting shoes are recommended); no exposed skin from the ankle down (skin must be covered by shoes not socks).

The course sessions have time limits and participants can do the courses as many times they like during that period. Kids have two hours including briefing and equipment preparation which takes about 30 minutes. Adult/junior course has three hours.

Gloves are available to purchase at the office for $5 for kids. We didn’t feel like they were needed and bare hands were fine.

Bring lots of water as it’s thirsty work.

The bathroom is located near the main office so go before you walk to the start of the courses as it’s a long way back again.

I would suggest leggings or long shorts/track pants to be worn as we had some banged knee incidences.
