TreeClimb Kuitpo Kids Course

The  kids course has 26 tree top activities, over 2 levels, allowing climbers to progressively complete the courses (including ziplines!). Adults don’t do the Kids Course, however the TreeClimb crew are there to offer training and guidance and your littlies will love to have your encouragement from the ground.

The Kids Course is for climbers between 100 and 135cm tall. The kids get 80 minutes to climb, which includes harnessing, a safety briefing and a turn on the practice course.

If you are keen to climb as a family, give the Family Course a go, where parents and kids over 125cm can climb together. Click here for more info.

The Grand Course is designed for thrill seekers and active adventurers of all abilities. The Kuitpo Grand Course is set across 4 levels, with 59 progressively challenging obstacles, featuring zip-lines and an exhilarating Tarzan Swing, Don’t worry if the Tarzan Swing makes you a bit nervous, the staff will be right there to talk your through it. Each course ends with a zipline…..wheeeeee!

Speaking of ziplines – the Pink Course includes 9 breathtaking ziplines through the amazing Kuitpo Forest.

The Grand Course is for those with a minimum height of 135cm and a max weight of 120kg. Gloves are mandatory. You get two hours to do as much of the Grand Course as you can – you really will see a different side to Kuitpo Forest!

TreeClimb Kuitpo Nets Adventure

A FIRST of its kind in South Australia!
Introduced as a post-climb activity OR an activity for those who might not be ready or able to give our main courses a go. With an UNLIMITED duration, you really can make the most of your time at TreeClimb! Add the Nets Course at time of booking or on arrival.

Whether you’re climbing with the littlies or you just want to release your inner-child, this is the course for you. An inclusive course for the whole family!

This course is recommended POST climb. If you wish to make a day of it, book your climb early and finish the day crawling, walking and wobbling through the nets.

Kuitpo TreeClimb has an on-site cafe so you can enjoy a coffee and snack before or after your climb. Spectators are also more than welcome – you don’t need to be climbing to visit. There is also a great nature play area with logs and teepees for little ones, so if they are too short to climb, they can still play! Dogs are welcome on-leash.

Things to know before you go

  • You need to book – TreeClimb is a popular place, especially in the school holidays and on weekends. They only allow a certain number of people on the course at a time so that there isn’t congestion and your experience is highly enjoyable. Book ahead to guarantee your spot for the best times. Click here to book online
  • New to ropes? No worries! On arrival you’ll be harnessed up by a trained staff member and be run through a video training course. You’ll also have a go on the practice course before you head off to make sure you are feeling confident.
  • You CAN enjoy TreeClimb if you’re scared of heights. Some of the KiA team have always had a strong fear of heights but didn’t let that get in the way of an awesome afternoon at TreeClimb, so don’t let it stop you either. You should however, know that it IS high up in the trees and some of the obstacles are scary! If it’s your first time, try going at a quieter time (call for advice) and with a supportive friend – and you’ll be amazed at the chance to overcome your fears.
  • Little Kids Can Enjoy Too: Kids big and small can enjoy TreeClimb including those as young as 3 years old as long as they are over 100cm tall. You will be surprised how quickly the littlies get the hang of it and they will have just as much fun as the big kids! Adults don’t do the Kids Course, but you can still be nearby to support them from the ground and of course grab some photos! The fantastic staff are always close by to help out if needed.

  • The Kuitpo Forest Mountain Bike Park, also known as Prospect Hill is a great place for mountain bike riders of all abilities. We have taken a number of primary school aged kids riding here, most of whom have never been single track riding before. They have enjoyed the challenge of learning to mountain bike, and intermediate riders are spoiled for choice in the great range of trails in the park. The trails aren't signposted so keep a copy on your phone of the park inset from the map below. The Kuitpo Forest Mountain Bike Park is suitable anyone from confident beginners and above. Once kids can ride confidently, stay straight and turn well they will be fine. They just need to be quite stable and able to steer well, as they need to navigate the narrow single trails. The park has one main beginner trail that takes our 5-7 year olds about 15-20 minutes to complete. There are some challenging sections for very new riders but they have all managed fine once they give it a try. The trail is relatively flat so there's not any/much uphill that leads to kids having to push. The track is single track (less…
