Get the Adrenaline Pumping

Get the Adrenaline Pumping

Looking for something fun and adventurous to do over the weekend? Come on! Just because the temperatures have cooled down a bit, doesn’t mean you have to stay clamped up inside.

Situated just outside of the city, at the picturesque Rosemary Hill, lies an adventure of a different kind. Think Tarzan and his Jane swinging between the treetops of a forest … Well, sort of anyway.

Ever tried your hand at “acrobranching”? No? Shame on you! You get to spend some time in Mother Nature and it’s loads of fun for the entire family.

Get the adrenaline pumping through your veins as you swing through trees, dangle from branches and balance in the air.

Sounds pretty fun right? You’ll get to do this and so much more when visiting Acrobranch@Rosemary Hill.

Choose between four exhilarating treetop adventure courses and a range of difficulty levels to suit your own skill set.

But don’t worry. You don’t need a specific physical fitness level to be able to enjoy the experience – as an individual or as part of a group.

Not only is it all-round fun, but it is a great activity to help build confidence and coordination.

Slide, balance, jump, crawl, dash, swing or stroll – the different courses available will most definitely test your physical ability, brainpower and balancing skills.

Fit for all ages, acrobranching is a wonderful way to get those muscles and minds working in a beautiful and peaceful outdoor setting.

And not to worry. The experienced guides are always nearby to keep a watchful eye on things or lend a helping hand when needed.

There is also something for everyone – obstacle courses for children (marked Acrobranch Kids) and some for reasonably fit adults and teenagers.

These obstacles consist of awesome treetop high ropes and tricky crossings (with ladders, tunnels, walkways and bridges). To top it off, they have some spectacular ziplines too!

Get ready for hours of fun and get out of your comfort zone a bit.

Rosemary Hill also provides a full catering service so feel free to enquire about prices and their services.

You are allowed to bring in their own birthday cakes when you pre-order catering from Rosemary Hill.

Acrobranch @ Rosemary Hill is the perfect idea for adult and children’s birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties, school outings and corporate teambuilding

There are different packages available in size and prices so just give the team a call.

And the best part: after bracing the treetops and releasing your inner Tarzan, you and the gang get to relax and kick back at the Greenhouse Café, a gorgeous coffee shop and venue right next to the Acrobranch courses.

The café is 1.4km from the main entrance to Rosemary Hill and has its very own parking lot – just follow the signs and drive straight through.
