Adventure seekers rejoice – the Mount Lofty Adventure Hub has opened the 15m Adventure Tower to the general public to enjoy every Saturday and Sunday over summer.
Created by SA owned and operated Venture Corporate Recharge in 1990 (they turn 30 next year!), the Mt Lofty Adventure Hub is home to Adelaide’s first Tree based Challenge Ropes course, the 15m adventure tower, SA’s longest zipline and the unique 18m high, weighted, 3 person Mega Swing.
It’s a purpose built adventure-based learning facility, that’s not just for kids.
Based in the Adelaide Hills at the Woodhouse Activity Centre, the hub is designed as a facility for specialised and corporate group programs with developmental outcomes.
However, over the last 30 years the hub has expanded to cater for school excursions, youth groups, sports teams and, now, the general public!
With a broad range of experiential outdoor activities on offer for groups, including the tree-based ropes course the 18m high three person mega swing, and the suite of activities, including camping, at Woodhouse, is the perfect adventure venue for those groups who crave getting out of their comfort zone.
For just $40, weekend visitors can enjoy a one hour taster experience at the centre, where they can climb the 15 metre high rock climbing wall before abseiling down the other side before shooting the longest zipline in South Australia, which is a thrilling 324m long.
Alongside these exciting activities, Venture is also running rock climbing sessions for the general public every Saturday, alternating between two sites at either Morialta or Onkaparinga.
These sessions are each four hours long, designed for those new to climbing, and are a surefire way to get your adventurous heart fluttering as you scale spectacular climbs on some of the best climbing cliffs around Adelaide.
Venture Corporate Recharge is still firmly attached to their roots, continuing to offer adventure based learning and wellbeing programs designed to illicit personal growth through the development of the trust to take emotional risks in a group setting, (under the professional supervision of nationally accredited facilitators, of course).
Groups can book into sessions and programs using the tree based ropes course and the other elements at their Mt Lofty Adventure Hub and also at their Southern Adventure Hub, located in the Mclaren Vale wine region.
So, if you’re looking to book an end of year function, improve workplace morale, or just wanting to enjoy some weekend thrills, the Mt Lofty Adventure Hub offers the perfect outside of the box experience to cater for all.
