There’s nothing wrong with cutting loose and hanging tight with your inner child every now and then. After all, kids really know how to get the most of life so we could probably learn a thing or two! That’s why we’ve put together a list of our five favourite spots to act really childish (in a good way) in Sydney.
Bubble Soccer is one of those wonderful things that really is exactly what it sounds like. You squeeze into a large (and very sexy) plastic bubble, waddle onto a scaled-down pitch, and attempt to play soccer in the most entertainingly ridiculous manner possible. It’s a genuine laugh, and has already taken much of the country by storm. A big, bouncy, goofy storm! Round up your mates and give it a try.

Let’s be honest – we all dream of escaping our day jobs to scramble around in the treetops like Tarzan sometimes. Now you can bring that dream to life at TreeTops, a forest-based network of suspension bridges and flying foxes set as high as 15 metres above the ground. From beginners to seasoned pros, there are courses to suit everyone here, so harness up and get climbing!
“What’s great is that after the initial training, the staff are hands off and you’re free to wander through the different courses as you like. TreeTop Adventure Park is more than just strings suspended above a forest, there’s ladders to climb, flying foxes, balancing beams, suspended bars, wobbly wooden planks – you name it, they’ve got everything in the world of obstacle courses!” – ShrimpyNoodle
