MEDIUM ROPES COURSE
Our ropes course is currently closed for maintenance.
Murphy's Creek Escape has two main escarpments within its boundary. These offer excellent facilitation of beginner groups, search and rescue training and social groups such as scouts, guides, cadets etc. White Mountain State Forest also offers excellent climbing conditions for the more experienced.
Cost: $20 per person - 2 hour session
Abseiling is offered on Saturdays throughout the year, and as scheduled during peak times (long weekend and school holidays).
Unfortunately we have had to close the flying fox due to safety concerns.
We have however had a GIANT SWING built to replace it. The Giant Swing offers a thrilling swing out over the canyon. Pictures will be posted soon.
Cost of Giant Swing: $10 per swing/$15 for two
The Giant swing will be offered on Saturdays throughout the year and as scheduled during peak times (school holidays and long weekends).
HIKING- Please note we do not have access to the National park at this present time.
Gear on and water bottles at the ready, the 100,000 acres of National Park to the rear of Murphys Creek Advenures is the perfect location for hiking activities. The undulation of the land, the density of the woodlands and the variety of amazing locations within the National Park all add to the experience of hiking on our camps.
Archery is a static activity that requires participants to complete an 8 step process in order to achieve success. Our instructors use a methodical instructional style to introduce the 8 steps and walk participants through them slowly. The result is accurate shooting and an understanding of the benefits of a systematic approach to anything you put your hands to.
This activity will develop an orderly and methodical approach, use of processes, discipline, competitive fun and an ability to follow directions.
Cost: $8 per person - 1 hour session
Archery is offered on Saturdays throughout the year and as scheduled during peak times (school holidays and long weekends).
Mountain Biking does not require high levels of fitness or endurance, rather it requires the rider to assess the course of least resistance and make a decision. Mountain Biking calls on resilience to complete the ride. Techniques are taught to enable the most in experienced rider to ‘get going’, before a gradual introduction of more advanced riding challenges. Mountain biking here at MCA is made all the more exciting due to the locality of the property and surrounding terrain. This activity will develop resilience, confidence, team work, perseverance, riding skills, improved fitness and sense of adventure.
