- What exactly is a Tree Adventures course?
Tree Adventures is a forest adventure park offering 10 individual high wire confidence courses. Each course starts with a ladder that leads you to the first platform. From there you progress from tree to tree on a series of aerial activities, including high wires, swinging logs, balance beams and tree surfing.
Each activity is designed to test your balance while building confidence and, of course, ensuring that everyone has lots of fun. Once you have completed all of the activities on the course you are rewarded with an exhilarating flying fox ride back to the ground. For more information on the various activities on offer at Tree Adventures take a look at our photo gallery.
Unfortunately due to a lack of power and running water in Woodhill Forest we are restricted to the use of port-a-loos. Tree Adventures staff inspect and clean the toilets throughout the day.
- Hand washing
We have a hand washing station at the park available to all customers to freshen up after your climb.
- Picnic / BBQ areas
We have 8 picnic tables situated throughout the park that all customers are more than welcome to use. We also have BBQs available for hire for a small fee of $5. Use of the BBQ is free of charge for birthday party groups of 8 or more. Tree Adventures can also offer your group protection from the scorching sun or persistent rain, with several canopies available for hire. If you would like to reserve a BBQ or shelter for your group please call us on 0800 TARZAN (827 926).
PLEASE NOTE: Requesting a BBQ and/or shelter in the notes section of your booking does not guarantee you a reservation. Please call us to ensure your reservation is confirmed.
We have bottled NZ spring water available at the park, as well as a selection of Whittakers chocolate bars.
- Safety equipment
All participants wear a fitted harness (complete with lanyards, carabiners and pulley) and a helmet. Your harness and carabiners keep you attached to the safety system at all times, this means that if you slip, your harness will catch you to prevent a fall.
- Safety training
Every participant must complete a brief safety training session before starting the courses. This involves a demonstration introducing participants to the equipment and safety system. Once you have practised, and the instructor is confident that you are ready to go, you will continue around the courses on your own.
One of the great things about Tree Adventures is that you can make your way around the courses independently and be confident knowing that instructors patrolling from the ground are there to offer quick assistance if you happen to get stuck or wish to come down. Our supervising instructors are kitted out with specialist equipment and fully trained to perform rescues.
All climbers under 16 years must be directly supervised by an adult at all times. Supervision ratios are as follows:
Climbers 5 and 6 years 1 participating adult for every 2 children Climbers 7 to 12 years 1 adult (participation may be required) for every 6 children Climbers 13 to 15 years 1 adult (participation not required) for every 8 children Climbers 16 years and over Direct supervision not required
- Deeply rooted and well established activity
The forest adventure park concept was first conceived in France and has boomed in recent years with over 500 parks throughout France, and increasing popularity worldwide. Woodhill’s Tree Adventure Park is the brainchild of six French enthusiasts with a wealth of experience working in and building parks throughout France. They researched forests worldwide in the hunt for a new and interesting place to introduce the forest adventure concept and they finally chose the Woodhill Forest in New Zealand for its natural beauty and the adventurous nature of Kiwi culture.
- A special place for everyone
Tree Adventures is an environmentally friendly park built with the long-term health of the forest in mind. A professional arborist carefully selected the trees on which to build, and ongoing assessments monitor their structural integrity and health. Our structures are designed to avoid damaging the trees and allow them to continue growing naturally.
Tree Adventures staff monitor the courses daily and perform thorough checks on a monthly basis. A specialist independent company also performs an annual course audit to ensure safety.
