If you’re looking for a bit of adventure for your older kids (aged 12+) then Southern Adventure Hub is a great option!
Approximately 45 minutes drive south of Adelaide, near the McLaren Vale region it’s located in a lovely bush setting, with plenty of shade and places to enjoy a picnic.
The main features of this adventure space are the 9 metre 2 sided rock climbing wall and continuous high ropes course, and when we say high ropes, we really mean high ropes!
We really enjoyed the challenge of the course, and the children’s sense of pride on completion. The first few obstacles on the high ropes course were tricky, and the boys were a bit wobbly to start with. It didn’t take long for the heart rate to slow though and they settled right in to the challenge. It was a great sense of accomplishment to get to the top of the 9 metre climbing tower and of course who doesn’t love a zipline?! – what a thrill
Sessions are 80 minutes each one session per day, with more scheduled in school holidays. Our suggestion would be to book ahead of time, and make sure the courses you want are open. At this stage, sessions only run on Saturdays and Sundays, with 8 participants max. Make sure you arrive 15 minutes beforehand. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
The minimum weight requirement is 25 kgs and the minimum height requirement is 120 cm.
You’ll also find the ‘Leap of Trapeze’ which is available for private group bookings as part of the High Ropes Challenge Course (minimum 8 people)
The proximity to the beautiful wineries of the area for food and drink was an added bonus; it makes for a lovely day out. The sense of space and nature around us was lovely.
We had a great day out at Southern Adventure Hub and will definitely go back. If you’re looking for an ideal birthday activity for older kids, teenagers, or adventurous adults, this is for you!
Thanks to our guide Anne – you were great and very experienced and knowlegeable in your information and guidance getting us through the courses.
