Environment Minister Albert Jacob officially opened new tourist attraction Trees Adventure Park last Thursday.
Trees Adventure Park gives participants the opportunity to fly through the treetops on trapezes and flying foxes.
The high ropes course was developed from an unsolicited proposal and business plan submitted by Canopy Adventure to the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
“The company came forward with a unique proposal and the department worked directly with them through the assessment and approval process to deliver an exciting new park experience,” Mr Jacob said.
“Lane Poole Reserve already receives more than 180,000 visitors each year.
“With attractions such as Trees Adventure Park and the recently upgraded visitor facilities provided through the State Government’s Parks for People initiative, there are even more opportunities to attract visitors to the area.”
The high ropes obstacle course near Nanga Mill campground enables people to move through the tree canopy via a network of rope bridges, flying foxes, trapezes and Tarzan jumps.
The course has been built around tree trunks rather than drilling through them, minimising the impact on vegetation.
It is suitable for children as young as four and all participants will receive training.
