Kangaroo Point Rockclimb

Thursday, April 11, 2002
Ben hangs around the city for what he discovers is a lot of hard work - and a tad hair-raising.

WorthWild is an adventure company offering rock climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, bushwalking and canoeing. Owner Martin Worth is experienced in all of these. His motto for the business is "absolute safety, maximum fun, best value for money".

WorthWild's activities are based on the national standard for training in outdoor recreation, and their grading system ensures participants will enjoy the adventure at their own level of fitness and ability.

Kangaroo Point is a particularly safe place to learn to climb as it has a predictable environment. Brisbane City Council has gone to great lengths to ensure there are no loose rocks or other hazards and they have also installed night floodlighting.

But ultimately, of course, people need to take responsibility for their own safety and it is a user beware environment.

Kangaroo Point is a very visible part of Brisbane. People see it while driving, or on a ferry, and it has been used as a place to climb for many years.

There might be as many as 200 people climbing at night, with other outdoor-lovers trail-bike riding, rollerblading or simply enjoying a barbecue in the park. When there is a full moon, Martin also offers canoe trips and these are extremely popular. There's just something special about the sight of shimmering moonlight on water …

Martin can tailor something for solo adventurers, families, groups of friends or corporate bonding sessions. These can be arranged to give you an adrenalin surge or, if you want something a little more soothing and quiet, they can arrange that too.


The heart of Brisbane.
