What clothing should I wear?

Be sun smart

Please do not underestimate the intensity of the Perth elements.

Shirts / tops

Just as shorts can ride up while climbing, shirts may ride up or get bunched beneath your harness, leaving you uncomfortable.

A t-shirt that is long enough to tuck into your pants or one that is fitted enough that it won’t ride up is a good choice. No exposed stomachs as the harness will rub significantly.

Consider long sleeves for projection from the sun and wind. At the top of the bridge, it is considerably windier and give a chill on cool days. Pick clothing that is comfortable and weather appropriate. Rain jackets and overalls are not provided.

Pants

When you’re first deciding what to wear, pants will likely be the first thing that you’ll think about. It’s also one of the most important decisions you’ll make, because choosing the right ones can be the difference between a fun Zip+Climb, and a very uncomfortable one.

The harness that you’ll wear when bridge climbing or ziplining goes under your legs, around your thighs and waist and over your shoulders.

Shorts that are too short may ride up when your harness is tightened, or when you’re zipping down the line. While this won’t put you in any risk, it can be uncomfortable. Instead, opt for shorts that reach to knee length or slightly above, or play it safe with long pants, capris or leggings.

Close-toed shoes

Enclosed, rubber sole shoes are required to climb the bridge for safety as well as enjoyment. Your feet will have a workout and there are lots of places where you might kick your toe.

Hats/long hair

If you have longer hair, please ensure it is secured in a low ponytail at the nape of the neck to ensure that the helmet fits correctly.

Hats cannot be worn under the helmet for safety reasons.

Can I bring my phone, camera or GoPro with me?

No. For strict safety reasons, guests are not permitted to bring any items up the bridge. Your ticket includes FREE souvenir photos of your experience emailed to you directly after your experience.

What about sunglasses and other loose items?

For safety and security reasons, no loose items may be taken up the bridge – including wallets, devices. FREE lockers are provided.

You will be provided with a FREE strap for sunglasses and spectacles. Souvenir sunglass straps are available for purchase.

Are lockers available?

Yes – backpack size lockers are available FREE of charge to store your valuables.

Cultural head coverings

Please be aware that you will be required to wear a standard helmet when climbing the bridge. Any cultural head coverings will need to be able to fit underneath the helmet. If you are unsure if your head covering will fit, we recommend you bring an alternative head covering just in case. We have private changing rooms where you can discreetly change.

What health issues might exclude me?

Medium level of fitness required. The climb is very steep and physically demanding. Please consider your personal fitness levels when deciding.
