Consultation has concluded

We want your feedback on the establishment of a new environmentally sensitive treetop adventure facility alongside the Chookarloo Campground in Kuitpo Forest Reserve.

What's being decided?

We are working with TreeClimb SA to develop an aerial adventure course adjacent the Chookarloo Campground within Kuitpo Forest.

TreeClimb SA have been successful in obtaining funding through the South Australian Government’s Nature Based Tourism Co-investment Fund for the project.

Tree Climb SA will be responsible for the management of the facility and will be required to establish a Licence Agreement.

We are seeking your thoughts on the project to ensure we consider all issues when developing this exciting new tourism initiative.

Your ideas and feedback will help shape the vision of this new sustainable nature-based tourism initiative for Kuitpo Forest Reserve.

Background

The design and footprint of the project will be very similar to TreeClimb in the Adelaide Park Lands. It is an aerial adventure course comprising of approximately 12 elevated treetop ropes and zipline courses of varying difficulty.

As part of the infrastructure, TreeClimb will erect a modern lightweight building to accommodate a check-in area, safety and harnessing area and will include a small café and decked area for users and visitors. The building will be designed to ensure it fits comfortably into its natural landscape and will utilise removable footing systems to reduce the impact to the area and allow removal at the end of the agreed license period.

The design will also include an interactive education room to provide schools and visitors with the chance to learn about conservation and broader environmental challenges.

The plan also includes the development of a “nature play” zone within the course design and will be accessible for all forest visitors free of charge.
