Get your kids off the net and IN to the nets at TreeTop NetWorld!
In an Australian first, adventure-lovers and thrill-seekers alike can bounce, play, discover and explore amongst the highest peaks of the picturesque Ourimbah State Forest, following the official launch of TreeTops Central Coast’s newest attraction – TreeTop NetWorld.
A dynamic fusion of play, adventure and discovery, NetWorld invites visitors to navigate their way through a vast network of netted-trampolines, ball pits, tree houses and walkways, all suspended five meters high in the canopies of lush bushland.
Complete with seven unique “rooms” and five funky tree houses, NetWorld is the latest impressive milestone in sustainable tree-based adventure where visitors are encouraged to embrace nature in a way that is both sympathetic to the environment and fantastic to their health.
Australia’s Health 2018, by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, found that 63% of Australians aged 18 and over, and more than 28% of children aged 5-17 are overweight or obese and lack the required physical activity to keep their hearts healthy and their bodies happy.
TreeTops General Manager, Sandrine Gaymard, said NetWorld was an initiative that could help encourage Australian families, even the most sedentary, to get out and be active in the great outdoors.
“The nation spent 21.9 billion hours browsing the Internet last year – that’s an average of 876 hours per person, which is more than an entire month lost online!
NetWorld is a great new attraction that will help encourage Australians to get off the net and IN to the nets,” Sandrine said. “Its beauty is that it disguises physical activity as something fun, exhilarating and never seen before.
NetWorld is available to all ages from 1 year old all the way to the young at heart. “It was important to us that this would appeal to all ages and it has been wonderful to see multiple generations from the one family come out and enjoy time in the nets. Infants, teens, parents and grandparents all enjoying activity together, sharing a fun experience and opening up conversation and reconnection” Sandrine commented.
“Teens and adults alike have really enjoyed bringing out their inner child and remembering how much fun they can have”, Sandrine said.
There is something for all activity levels to enjoy, this is a ‘choose your own adventure’ style experience where you decide how energetic your NetWorld adventure is. From chill out rooms complete with swinging hammock chairs to encourage conversation and get your breath back, to a no bounce ball pit all the way through to the high intensity rooms of Chaos Crossing. Chaos Crossing is over 180 m2 in size and filled with 3-meter inflatable balls. The five tree houses include interactive educational games where you can learn more about the environment, we all need to protect. Already complete with vertical challenges, a rollercoaster zipline and an adventure park, the addition of NetWorld to TreeTops Central Coast is set to boost the regions’ economy and stimulate new interest – from Sydney all the way through to interstate.
“We’re the first to bring this craze to Australia and hope to branch out further to get Aussies active again – getting them off their bums and back to the bush.”
The popularity of NetWorld has been immense and TreeTops strongly encourages booking online to avoid disappointment of missing out on your preferred time.
