The Culture Trip has climbed to dizzying heights and scaled death-defying walls to bring you this list of the most extreme climbs Melbourne has to offer. If you’re looking to conquer your fear of heights, or if you just want a great day out, then these five locations will challenge and delight you.
Opened in March 2013, the New Zealand born-and-bred Clip ’N Climb is a refreshing and colorful take on the world of climbing walls. Every session includes a 15 minute safety briefing before you clip into the automated belaying system and begin climbing. The visually fascinating centre features 37 climbing challenges, including ‘The Stairway to Heaven,’ the ‘Dark Tower,’ ‘Speed Walls,’ and a wall which allows you to climb up a game of Tetris. For daredevils, there are two additional heart-racing experiences: ‘The Leap of Faith’ and the free fall ‘Vertical Drop Slide’; each climb is fitted with an auto belay system, so you won’t need to find a partner.

Located on Waterdale Road, Latitude caters to both the young and young-at-heart with a diverse mix of activities, including nine-meter bungee jumping, a dodgeball court, basketball lanes, rock climbing, gladiator-style Battle Beam, and an obstacle course set over 100 interconnected trampolines. The Latitude climbing walls are designed for speed, so bring a friend and race up the brightly coloured walls to ring the bell. There’s also an auto-belay system allowing you to climb with ease. The Culture Trip can also reveal that Latitude is about to install exciting new climbing equipment.
