Trees Adventure

I'm not an overly adventurous person I suppose. I enjoy the outdoors as much as anyone, I did some moderate level bushwalking in my youth, but now more often I like a bit of stroll from the car park to see something nice. Sometimes though you get taken out of your comfort zone- and it can be a good thing.

Recently Master Wicker and I met up with my sister and my nephews for an outing at Trees Adventure Grose River Park, on the outer edges of Sydney, near Richmond. I watched the video online at the website, but wasn't sure how I'd like it, or how I'd go.

Still I decided to give it a crack. No point just sitting on the sidelines watching. 

There's challenges for every age

At various heights

Lots of fun zip lines/flying foxes
While I limited myself to the green courses,
Master Wicker did a Red level course

It's all up pretty high

It was a fantastic 2 hour session, and I was only mildly sore for the next two days. Everyone enjoyed it. Both Master Wicker and I hope to go back again one day. 

That day in Sydney, a mere 9 days ago, now feels like a distant dream… It was 30 degrees in Sydney that day. Today in the Central West it hasn't got above 5 degrees, and snowed this morning!

It didn't settle in town,
but is the earliest snow I remember

Saturday Snapshot is a wonderful weekly meme

I've never heard of a tree adventure! It looks like my kind of a place. Wow. Fabulous. And three cheers, Louise, for bravely tree-adventure-ing, too!

Looks like an interesting way to spend the day, I'm not very adventurous either.

This looks like a lot of fun. I would definitely try it. The beauty of these is that you can't really get hurt since you're clipped in. Here's Mine

I think I wouldn't mind watching! LOL

Those heights make me a bit nervous....gorgeous shots.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

What an adventure! I think I might try something like that, but it would certainly scare the poop out of me!

That looks like so much fun!

Wow! That looks so cool. I'd be fine as long as I didn't look down. Lol.

Here is my Saturday Snapshot.

Now you have me searching online to find similar places near where I live. I'd so love to do this, even if I'm afraid of heights. :-) Oh, and wouldn't it be a great obstacle for Amazing Race contestants?!

I'm not sure that would be for me. We have some places in the UK called Go Age that I think are a bit similar.

What fun! This old lady would have to sit and watch and maybe take some pictures. Glad you had a good time.

What an amazing nature's playground! Looks like a great place for families. But do they have safety personnels or guards around just in case of mishaps?

Susan Lindquist said...

Wow! I am so impressed! These ropes courses are so neat! I don't know that I'd be as brave as Mr. Wicker, but I'd love to have the opportunity someday to take the challenge!
