New tree top adventure experience in Dandenong Ranges
Trees Adventure, a new treetop obstacle course, has opened in the heart of Victoria's much-loved Dandenong Ranges.
Located in the picturesque Glen Harrow Gardens in Belgrave (home of the famous Puffing Billy), the Trees Adventure course offers visitors the chance to sail through the forest on flying foxes and take on a series of thrilling and somewhat lofty challenges between the trees, up to 15 metres high!
With course levels ranging from beginner to expert, there’s something for everyone.
For children aged 5 – 10 years, there’s the easier ‘Butterfly Attack’ and ‘Eat your Weeties’ courses which feature the flying fox and swinging barrels while adults and bigger kids can try their hand at the intermediate course ‘Double Dare’, which includes a massive two-stage flying fox and swing bridge with lots of missing planks. For the die-hard thrillseekers, there’s the advanced ‘Suck it Up’ course that starts with a huge overhead net traverse and includes a 100 metre flying fox called ‘The Kingmaker’.
The course itself is based around some of the oldest and rarest trees in Australia, some of which reach up to 60 metres in height and range in origin from California and Japan to the foothills of the Himalayas.
