Woodhouse ignites a passion for adventure and personal challenge through an authentic Australian nature experience - oh, and a unique combination of totally awesome activities!
We're talking: The O.G Ninja Warrior Course.. a giant split-level maze... waterless waterslides... Frisbee golf... outdoor multi-dimensional bouldering... outdoor laser skirmish... orienteering and the list goes on!
Open every day, including public holidays, from 9am-5pm with 24-hour onsite assistance for guests. Visitors can stay for a day or a week, and we reckon we offer the most affordable, safe and convenient adventure experience in South Australia.
Our site offers fun for the whole family and while small children are welcome (free entry for under fives!) and will still have a great time, kids aged five and over will get the most out of the adventure equipment. If one of the obstacles on Challenge Hill is too difficult simply skip it! If there is a favourite challenge it can be done multiple times! Other favourite activities for smaller children include the split-level maze (The Labyrinth) and the tunnels in the adventure playground. Tube Slide riders must be at least 1 metre tall to ride alone, however a smaller child may go tandem with an adult in one of our big tubes.
WOODY'S CHALLENGE HILL
An obstacle course designed to bring people together as a team and challenge individual skill and bravery. Challenge Hills stretches people physically and mentally as they crawl, climb, swing and splash their way up and down the hill. It promotes strong team work and leadership skills. Allow 60-90 minutes.
This multi-dimensional structure is situated adjacent to the St George camping field in the centre of the property. Offering the perfect introduction to rock climbing and delivering the complete experience of what bouldering is all about, its imposing stance is highlighted with an arc, offering an appropriate level of challenge for everyone from young children to experienced climbers. Allow 10-25 minutes.
The world’s only giant split-level maze with a fun firefighter’s pole, a slide and two flights of stairs adjoining the 2.8m drop from top to bottom tier. There’s a 135m direct route from start to finish but the experience can be extended to 537m by finding quizzes and riddles at each of the 17 dead ends. The internal panels are interchangeable so the route is changed regularly to keep things exciting for return visitors. Allow 10-25 minutes.
Disc Golf shares the same joys and frustrations as traditional golf, whether it’s sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway. Disc Golf players use a frisbee, which is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the elevated metal basket. Allow 30-45 minutes.
TUBE SLIDE (operates weekends and most public holidays - closed weekdays including during the school holidays)
As the only Tube Slide in South Australia, this is one of our most popular attractions. Think of a water-less water slide or a snow-free ski run where you slide down 100m+ synthetic slopes in big rubber rings that turn, accelerate, go up in bends and stop on their own. It’s fast, furious and fabulously fun! Allow 20-90 minutes. FULLY ENCLOSED SHOES ESSENTIAL!
With 2.4-metre-high bouldering walls and more than 300 climbing holds, this all-weather activity is in our indoor action space, Stag’s Activity Centre.
There are eight orienteering courses professionally designed by the Wallarinaga Orienteers. Varying in length from 1.6 to 2.8 km, participants use basic map reading and navigational skills to find the posts around the property that spell the special answer and/or match the photos with the correct checkpoints. Allow 45-90 minutes.
Numerous walks available from Woodhouse lead to popular destinations including the Mt Lofty Summit, Mt Lofty Botanic Garden and Cleland Wildlife Park. The world-famous Heysen Trail passes through the property and hikers can walk in either direction, adjusting distances and time to suit personal preferences. There are also many valleys and scenic ridge roads that provide hours of walking pleasure.
(at additional cost by arrangement)
LASER SKIRMISH (pre-booking required, additional fee applies)
We’re convinced this is the best outdoor Laser Skirmish environment in SA. Located in a thick jungle-like setting with trees and boulder rocks to hide behind, Laser Skirmish at Woodhouse is a truly authentic outdoor experience. Offering the thrill and excitement of paintball without the pain or mess. The gaming guns fire a harmless infra-red beam and are self-contained with light-weight head sensors that are attached to the player. There are no vests necessary, making it easier to move around.
MT LOFTY ADVENTURE HUB (pre-booking required, additional fee applies)
Tucked away in Woodhouse’s picturesque pine-forest, Adventure Hubs South Australia's ‘Mount Lofty Adventure Hub’ offers a large range of effective team-building and leadership programs for groups as well as experience packages for individuals. Heart pumping activities include a tree-based challenge ropes course, low ropes course, climbing and abseiling wall, SA’s longest zipline and a three-person mega swing.
