Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym, St Peters and Villawood
This is the biggest climbing centre in Sydney! At the Villawood Centre, they host Tuesday Youth Climbing for 6-10 year olds every Tuesday from 4.30-6pm, and 11yrs+ from 5.30-7pm. It makes an awesome kids birthday party too! The St Peters Centre boasts 3700 square metres of climbing walls, with an average wall height of 14m! Yikes!

Climb Fit, St Leonards
Just 10 minutes from the city is Climb Fit – this is both a climbing centre and gym! They accept kids as young as 4, and present the best activity to keep kids fit on a rainy day rather than stuck in front of a screen. There are also 2-day school holiday camps for 10-15 year olds, in case this becomes their new favourite hobby!
