WARM UP @Woodhouse

The cooler weather has arrived... so I guess we'll all just have to stay inside and watch TV or play video games.

Not at our house, my friend! Whack on your beanie, slide on your gloves, layer up and let’s have some screen-free fun in the great outdoors.

Need we say more! Outside of fire ban season (May-November), campfires are an essential part of your DAY or STAY at Woodhouse.

There are several large fire pits for shared use - a great opportunity to meet like-minded families - as well as some half-barrel drums if you're looking for something more private. You are also welcome to bring your own portable fire drum.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Studies indicate that sitting by a crackling fire lowers blood pressure! It’s a great way to unwind and make new friends as you recall childhood memories - and create new ones. (not to mention the warming benefits!)



A great way to get the heart pumping is tackling the obstacles on Challenge Hill: an obstacle course designed to bring you together as a team, while challenging your skill and bravery. 

WHY WE LOVE IT: While a few of the challenges are too slippery when wet, signs on each element display all those that are safe to use year round.

WET WEATHER WARNING: Note that in ongoing heavy rain, Challenge Hill will be closed.




Like golf, but with a flying disc. Complete each of the 9 holes with the fewest number of throws to win! 

WHY WE LOVE IT: Anyone can play a round of Disc Golf when the sun’s out, but only the very skilful can master this sport in the wind and rain. And even if it ends up taking 20 throws to reach the net… you’ll sure have fun getting there!




Think of a water-less water slide or a snow-free ski run where you slide down 100m+ synthetic slopes in big rubber rings that turn, accelerate, go up in bends and stop on their own

WHY WE LOVE IT: Dragging your tube up the return, followed by an awesome adrenaline rush back down the Slide is a sure fire way to get you warmed up.

WET WEATHER WARNING: For the safety of our riders, the Slides will not open if predicted rain fall in Piccadilly is greater than 5mm and 50% chance of rain. This will be determined by 5pm the day prior. 



Work your way through the giant outdoor split-level maze, with a fun fireman's pole and 2 flights of stairs. 

WHY WE LOVE IT: Exercise your mind as well as your body, as you navigate your way through to find and solve the riddles found at each of the dead ends.




Offering 2.4 metre high bouldering walls, and over 300 climbing holds, we’re thrilled to add this activity in our newly appointed indoor action space, Stag’s Activity Centre.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Works on motor-skills and balance… and it’s indoors so can be used all year round!


There are several orienteering courses and photo hunt trails to suit all levels, professionally designed and varying in length from 1.6 to 2.8 km. Use basic map reading skills to navigate your way around the property. 

WHY WE LOVE IT: No compass required and can be done all year round… a little rain never hurt anybody!



There are numerous un-powered camping areas, complete with shared campfire circles and adjacent Basecamps which have been fitted with deluxe creature comforts including toilets, hot showers, hand dryers, vanity mirrors and power points for your hairdryer.
