Tree Top Challenge
The Sunshine Coast’s Big Pineapple is now home to the multi-million-dollar Tree Tops Challenge High Ropes Adventure Park.
Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said she is confident that the Adventure Park, which features Australia’s highest ropes course, will attract more visitors to the Sunshine Coast region.
Ms Jones said high ropes course is the fifth attraction owned and operated by Tree Tops, completing the groups offerings on the Gold Coast and in the Scenic Rim.
“This new attraction combines more than 100 high ropes challenges and 12 ziplines spanning up to 130 metres and takes about a half day to complete,” Ms Jones said.
“When it comes to enticing more visitors and creating more tourism jobs on the Sunshine Coast, new attractions are the key.
“This is a great addition to the world-class tourism offering on the Sunshine Coast – a region that has always been a family favourite for domestic and international travellers.”
Tree Tops Challenge General Manager Mr David Taylor said the new park, with courses suspended in the canopy at heights over 25 metres, is both the highest and most thrilling Adventure Park in Australia.
“We operate to the highest safety standards and our guests are continuously attached to overhead guidewires from their harness and are only disconnected when they are safely on the ground,” Mr Taylor said.
“It’s a great opportunity for families with kids aged eight through to adults to experience the stunning rainforest environment at the Big Pineapple while getting outside their comfort zone.”
Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson said the investment by the Tree Top Challenge was a great result for business, local employment opportunities and a sign for positive business confidence in the region.
“This unique location will provide visitors with an amazing experience high above the rainforest floor,” Mr Jamieson said.
