For Cystic Fibrosis

Looking for Your Next Challenge?

What about climbing to the top of Perth’s Matagarup Bridge? This is no walk in the park. You'll climb, shimmy, slide and squeeze through tight spaces to reach the top, 72 metres above the river.

All funds raised will help us continue our vital support services and research funding for people living with cystic fibrosis.

The Event


Sunday 12 September


Between 8am & 2pm 


Matagarup Bridge

The Climb

The climb is a 1.5 hr adrenaline experience where you and your teammates will be required to climb, shimmy, slide and squeeze through tight spaces to reach the SkyView – an open-air viewing platform 72 metres above the river. Once at the top you'll enjoy breathtaking views over the Swan River.

Matagarup Zip + Climb will coordinate 5 climbs up the main arch of the Bridge between 9:00am and 1:00pm, with a maximum of 16 participants per climb. This climb is not for the faint-hearted with the average gradient of the climb at 45 degrees! Prior to climbing, you will undertake a safety induction and be fitted with a full body harness, helmet and a bridge latch device with tether to ensure your safety at all times.

The Challenge

Matagarup Bridge

Matagarup Bridge is a suspension pedestrian bridge crossing over the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia. The bridge provides pedestrian access between Burswood and East Perth, connecting visitors to Burswood Peninsula, including the Optus Stadium.

Matagarup is the name of the land at the eastern end of Perth where the Swan River once became very shallow at times, and provided the only way across the Derbal Yerrigan for miles and miles for Noongar folks.
