Sunshine Plaza today has received development application approval for a high ropes adventure course as part of its redevelopment. 

By mid-2019, Sunshine Plaza will be home to the first outdoor high ropes course at a major regional shopping centre in the country and the world’s largest ropes course on poles. It will include a 22-metre high viewing deck, 150 challenges and 16 zip lines, with the longest one at 130 metres across Cornmeal Creek. 

Adventure high ropes specialist, Trees Adventure will design and operate the high ropes course, providing 1, 2 or 3 hour experiences. The courses cater for ages 6 and up, with a broad range of activities and challenges. 

Lendlease Managing Director of Retail, Gary Horwitz says “Visitors to Sunshine Plaza will want to spend the entire day here, enjoying the breadth of experiences we have to offer – the best shopping, dining, entertainment and adventure options.

The future of retail will not just be about shopping, we must be innovative and offer customers a range of experiences in one great place. 

The high ropes course will add another dimension to the new Cornmeal Creek casual dining and entertainment precinct, ensuring Sunshine Plaza remains a must-visit destination among locals and tourists alike”

Nicolas Dansin, Trees Adventure Managing Director quotes “Once the attraction is built, Sunshine Plaza will be home to the world’s largest ropes course on poles. With something for every level of fitness, our course will allow everyone to experience a unique, world first attraction on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. 

We’ll also be offering pre-booked drop off sessions for kids, so parents can shop while kids are challenging themselves away from screens”.
