One of Adelaide's most iconic experiences, the Adelaide Oval RoofClimb is an awesome gift and an even more awesome gift!

Michelle, Gift It Now's Business Development Manager, reviews her experience on this epic adventure.

To be honest, I went into this climb with very little expectation, and did wonder to myself how exciting a climb over a roof really good be.

To my surprise, it was fascinating! The views of Adelaide were lovely, but most of all; it was learning about the history of the stadium and the surrounding area that intrigued me the most.

Our guide was superb and provided lots of interesting commentary along the way. The best (well actually most terrifying) part of the climb was getting to the top and doing the lean-out (basically allowing your body to fall back allowing only your harness to hold you, no hands, only feet on the ground). This might not seem scary to some, but when you are 43m above the ground looking over the field, its high, really high!

The ground operation was also really slick. They have done a great job.

How to get there:

The Adelaide Oval is situated in the Adelaide CBD.

  • Public transport is easy with the Riverbank Bridge connecting the Oval to the Adelaide Rialway Station and North Terrace
  • Bike racks are available should you decide to cycle there (highly recommend)
  • Taxis can be arranged with the drop off on the western side of King William St

What to bring:

  • Closed in footwear with good grip ? I don?t recommend ballet shoes etc as they can be slippery
  • Something light to wear under your climb suit in case of hot weather conditions
  • Sunglasses
  • A below 0.5% alcohol reading ? you will not be able to climb if the reading is over and above this

Please note, if you forget items such as hats, sunscreen, water etc, these are available at the climb base. Hats and sunscreen are provided free of charge.

Ideal gift for...

Anyone really, kids, families, groups, bucks parties, hens parties, you name it. As long as you can walk comfortably and climb a few stairs, you will be fine.
