Need a bit of thrill in your life? Perth Observatory is teaming up with Spacechameleon Adventure Co to organise a family friendly event where you can abseil our Lowell Telescope Dome. Each participant will get 3 abseils through the dome's trap door and descend the full 20m in a controlled free fall to the ground. You can also abseil upside down just like Tom Cruise if you choose to do so ;).

Both abseiling and climbing challenge your primal fears, with falling being the most primal of all. You'll learn how to apply the rational mind to understand irrational fears, leads to a greater level of control in many other aspects of day-to-day life. Spacechameleon Adventure Co caters for beginners as well as adrenaline junkies and the event will go ahead rain or shine.
