Open for adventure seekers

ADVENTURERS keen on abseiling or making a para descent of a 10-metre-high tower have the chance to make the leap at the newly opened Flame Lily Adventures on the Burrum Heads Road.

Owners Jimmy and Cathy Swan are still putting the finishing touches on their African-themed adventure park but threw open the gates on Monday.

Mr Swan said the first week had been relatively quiet but they were taking bookings for the three lakeside cabins, commando tower and from school, family and work groups who wanted to tackle the assault course or the 17km canoe trip on the Burrum River.

He will also use his military experience and training to run five-day corporate team-building courses.

Mr Swan said adventurous visitors needed reasonable fitness and the assault course was still under construction but would have 10 obstacles when completed including cargo nets, rope swings, logs over water, barbed wire and spare tyre runs.

He said the park also offered kayaks for hire on the lake, bike and barbecue hire, fishing, tables and chairs under gazebos, an amenity block and a sand volleyball court.

Mr Swan said day trippers were welcome from 8am until 4pm each day except Mondays and entry fees were $10 for adults and children over 13 and $5 for children.
