Matagarup Bridge was not originally built for people to climb. This is no ordinary walk up a bridge – this is a true climb. You will be required to undertake a trek up 314 steps on a 45-degree angle and shimmy and slide past the beams of the bridge to reach the SkyView Deck – an open-air viewing platform 72 metres above the Swan River.
We are waiting for Government to finalise regulatory approvals so we can begin zipping. Customers with gift certificates will be given first preference. We thank you for your patience, support and excitement.
On arrival, check-in at Zip+Climb HQ before you undertake a safety induction and fitted with a full body harness, helmet and a bridge latch device with tether to ensure your safety at all times. Once you are clipped on to the bridge, the adventure begins! This is a challenging climb and not for the faint-hearted. You will also be provided with your zipline trolley, which will be harnessed to your back for your trek up the bridge (approx weight 600 grams).
Your professional guide will escort you up the eastern side of the main arch to the midway point, allowing for the group to catch a collective breath. You will be entertained with interesting stories of the Swan River area as you are ascending the bridge.
The second part of the climb will take you to the summit. The SkyView Deck is an open-air viewing platform, complete with Perth’s first glass bottom platform, suspended 72 metres above the Swan River. You will be 100% enclosed, allowing you to safely untether and walk around the deck to enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views of Perth. From this position, your guide will share more interesting stories about the city as you view it from an entirely new perspective. You will spend approx.15 mins at the Sky-View deck.
Descend the bridge down the western side of the main arch to the launch platform and prepare for an adrenaline rush. Your guide will safely prepare you for launch, double checking all equipment and when you are ready, take off and feel the thrill as you soar through the sky at up to 20 metres per second!
You will be brought in for a safe landing on the eastern banks of the Swan River via our state-of-the-art braking systems. You will be escorted back to HQ to return your gear and receive your FREE photos of your amazing experience.
