Next Level Monkey Business is zipline and ropes course suitable for all ages! Located between Dunsborough and Yallingup, it is situated amongst the beautiful trees in a valley next door to Clancy’s Fish Pub.
Monkeys can choose their level of excitement, whether it’s the Mega Zip 100 meters across the lake, the Tree Huggers zipline course, the Mini zipline course or the entire monkey business experience.
The zipline, ropes and obstacle courses challenge even the most confident little monkeys. There are swinging bridges and balancing obstacles, twisty ladders and tiny tunnels, hanging poles, climbing walls, ziplines and a gigantic climbing wall. The unique 100+metre long Mega Zipline across the lake and the zipline course through the treetops are a must for all Great Gorillas craving that extra adrenaline rush and amazing sense of achievement.
Next Level Monkey Business consists of 3 courses presenting challenges for various age groups. They are as follows:
Cheeky Chimps ($39) for ages 4 – 8 years.
An exciting and safe introduction to tree-hugging: walking, balancing, climbing and zip-lining through the natural bushland at a low height. Cheeky Chimps will have fun balancing on the rope walk and the net bridges. They will climb through the tunnels, balance on the obstacles and zip-line through the bush.
Mini Monkeys ($49) for ages 9 – 12 years
Mini Monkeys will push themselves to the NEXT LEVEL. Having to coordinate bigger zips, higher elements and sweaty palms. Yes! They can do it all depending on height, weight and confidence!
Great Gorillas ($59) for ages 13 years+
All Great Gorillas get to take on ALL GREAT COURSES! It may look easy but don’t be fooled. The swinging ropes and the zig-zag bridge will test even the most experienced climbers! Once completed your natural gorilla instincts will kick in and you’ll be swinging through the forest with reckless abandonment! Great Gorillas can take on The Mega Zip. Climb the big tree next Clancy’s and zip over 100m across the lake! Minimum height requirement: 138cm Minimum weight: 38kg
Before climbing all participants are taken through a safety briefing. A waiver must be signed which can be done online when you make the booking or when you check-in at the park. Closed shoes are required. Sessions are 2 hours long.
Unlike some zipline and rope courses, Next Level Monkey Business requires no adult participation, which is a big plus for parents wish to keep their feet on the ground. Once your safety harness is locked on to your chosen course then you can make your way around it and only have to unclip once you reach the end. If at any time you encounter difficulty or feel like you can’t continue climbing the specially trained rescue instructors are on hand to assist you and lower you to the ground if necessary.
Spectators are more than welcome to follow your little monkey from the ground as they progress through the activities. Or if they are confident enough to partake the course without your encouragement you can relax with a coffee at the in house cafe or bring along your own picnic. You can even elect to enjoy a bite to eat in Clancy’s Beer Garden whilst keeping a watchful eye on your little monkeys swinging through the trees!
If you are accompanied by younger children who are unable or do not wish to take part in the course there are lots to entertain them whilst their older siblings have fun. Located next to the cafe are an enclosed sandpit and a cute cubby house.
If they want to feel as though they are taking part in the action you’ll also find some ground-level tunnels and balancing logs.
We all loved our time at Next Level Monkey Business. It’s a perfect family activity to take part in when visiting the South-West Region and it definitely burnt off a lot of our kids energy!
Next Level Monkey Business is located at 1710 Caves Road, Dunsborough. For more information visit nextlevelmonkeybiz.com.au
