Tr eeTop Adventure Park (phone 4025 1008) at Wyong Creek is an award-winning new adventure attraction for families. There are 76 challenges to attack, including 12 flying foxes set high within the tree canopy, trapezes, ladders and suspension bridges. And the park offers something for everyone in the family. It includes a variety of courses set at varying heights, to suit all ages and ability levels. The park is also very big on safety and environmental responsibility. The tree platforms have been erected with no drilling, and all structures at the park are designed to ensure that the trees can grow unrestricted. And what trees they are! Set inside Ourimbah State Forest, the park is home to some magnificent eucalypts, and viewing them from 15 metres above the ground while speeding along a flying fox is an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. And if you want to take things even higher and faster, head straight for Microlight Adventures (0404 808 853) at Somersby. Operator and pilot Len Birger hosts tandem flights which take in the most spectacular scenery that the Central Coast has to offer. Len reckons that flying in a microlight is better than flying in any other craft because the slower flying speed allows the passenger to fully appreciate the views. “Flights are taken with a qualified instructor and all of the controls and workings are explained,” Len said. “The participant can take control of the aircraft although the instructor is able to override the controls at any time.” If you prefer your thrills at ground level, then check out Oz Tr ikes (4372 1100), also at Somersby. Oz Tr ikes offers spectacular three- wheel motorcycles that can be hired for a self-drive adventure, or even a chauffeured scenic tour. There’s a range of destinations to choose from. Yo ur tour might take in lunch at Te rrigal Haven, pelican feeding at The Entrance, a cruise through Hunter Va lley wine country, or perhaps a freedom cruise along the F3 Freeway. Oz Tr ikes can even pick up clients from their hotel or motel. Add a shot of colour to your holiday with a game at The Paintball Place (4376 1411) at Kulnura. Paintball promises a day of laughs, exercise and adrenaline-charged excitement for over-18s. THREE WHEELIN’: Explore the Central Coast in style with Oz Trikes.
