What’s better than getting the family out in the fresh air? Doing it with a twist of adventure! For those who love a challenge, a bit of a thrill and want to bundle that up with some of the most picturesque surroundings in SA, you need to know about Mount Lofty Adventure Hub.
Just a short drive up the freeway, you’ll find Mount Lofty Adventure Hub set in the beautiful grounds of the Woodhouse Activity Centre. There’s bucketloads of fun on offer at this huge site, including a belayed high ropes challenge course, a 15-metre rock climbing and abseiling tower, a 324-metre forest zipline and the Mega Swing.
It’s a good time guaranteed, every time! We checked out what’s on offer across any weekend or during school holidays, and our pick for the day would have to be the RMZ experience. The newest addition to the adventure hub, everything is provided for this amazing experience… all you need to do is show up and have a good time!
Sink into a session of blood-pumping rock climbing up a 15-metre wall, before getting your heart racing along a 324-metre zipline through the trees, and top it all off by jumping on board the MEGA SWING! Just as you’d expect from the name, this 18-metre swing is a monster and can take up to three people for a ride amongst the treetops.
It’s something you can do as part of the RZM experience and for group bookings (which are available for a minimum of five people). Yiewwwww!
And if you’re really keen to continue leaping into the world of adventure, there’s an option to add on abseiling as well. Sessions for the RMZ are available every weekend and during school holidays, running for around 90 minutes twice a day.
There’s also the RAZ experience which combines rock climbing, abseiling and zip-lining for an exhilarating 70-minute session, too.
So, which boxes need to be ticked?
There’s no need to be any kind of expert, in fact, you don’t need to have any experience at all. But there’s a couple of things to keep in mind … little people under the age of 18 need to have mum, dad or an adult to go along with them. They need to weigh at least 25kg and stretch out to be at least 120cm tall… so it’s a great motivator for getting smaller ones to eat up and keep growing so they can join the fun!

Hmmm, what else? Just buckle up for a good time!
