Live Wire Park
Lorne is a great seaside town for a weekend escape and Live Wire Park is an added reason to head down along the coast. The completely ‘off-the-grid’ adventure park offers some unique experiences that are cleverly integrated into the forest and it’s loads of fun for everyone.
We recently ventured down to Lorne for the weekend with the main reason being to take the kids to Live Wire Park. What a success! The kids loved it and so did I.
The park is owned and managed by a local family and staffed with friendly locals who are all well trained, friendly and passionate about the surf coast region.
Shockwave Zip Coaster
The ‘Shockwave Zip Coaster’ is a totally different zipline experience to any other in the Otways – suspended in a hang gliding harness and sent off down the 525-metre run, it is great. Twisting and turning beneath the trees ropes course it is easy to think you will hit the gum trees on the bends. Rest assured, there is no chance of that.
Tree Canopy Walk
120 metres long, the canopy walk is wheelchair accessible and a fabulous vantage point for watching people climbing, jumping and zip lining on the ‘super circuit’.
10 metres off the ground, the canopy walk is a series of suspended walkway amongst the blue gums of the Otways.
This will challenge many people and has been really well thought out to provide a complex system of rope bridges, zip lines, tree climbing elements, a 10 m ‘Quickjump Bungee’ – if you are brave enough…. and what the creators have dubbed ‘ The Tarzan Swing’!
Climbers were laughing (along with the occasional shriek of excitement) as they moved from challenge to challenge, high up in the gum trees. Watching the action from ground level provides plenty of amusement!
For the kids! The short circuit is a clever combination of obstacles that include suspended treetop trails and zip lining fun too. Children under 16 have to be supervised – so for the not-so-brave adults, use your kid/s as an excuse to test the waters and try out this course which still has some challenges too.
Set on the Erskine Falls Road, the ‘Live Wire’ adventure park is just a couple of minutes drive from Lorne.
