Discover Rocksports: The Pioneers of Indoor Climbing in Australia
Established back in 1996, Rocksports stands as a monument to climbing enthusiasts, a testament to our love for the sport and the community we’ve built around it. As Australia’s first indoor climbing gym, we take immense pride in having pioneered a space where climbers of all skill levels can come together to share in the exhilaration and unique camaraderie that climbing brings.
Our gym is a fusion of history and innovation, housed within a charming, old brick building. This setting provides a unique backdrop for your climbing experience, with its characterful ambience enhancing the thrill of every ascent. It’s not just a gym – it’s a piece of climbing history that continues to inspire climbers to reach new heights.
At Rocksports, we strive to provide diverse climbing options that cater to all types of climbers. With 27 top rope walls, we offer over 90 challenging routes to ensure climbers are always presented with a fresh challenge. For those who prefer to climb solo, we have two automatic belay stations, providing a safe and controlled environment for you to practice and hone your techniques.
We’re proud of our state-of-the-art Boulder Hall, which adds another dimension to our climbing offerings. The hall is home to an array of challenging routes, meticulously crafted by our expert route setters. These routes are updated regularly, ensuring an evolving challenge that keeps our climbers engaged and always striving to conquer new problems.
But Rocksports is about more than just physical sport. We view climbing as a mental journey too, a path that promotes personal growth, enables confrontation of fears, and fosters self-trust. Our gym isn’t just a place to work out – it’s a venue for self-discovery and personal evolution.
We are committed to fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where climbers can push their limits, grow in their skills, and connect with a community of like-minded individuals. At Rocksports, you’re not just visiting a gym, you’re becoming part of a legacy. So, come join us, and let’s scale new heights together.
Rocksports prides itself on offering more than just a service; we provide an enriching climbing experience that keeps our climbers coming back for more. A substantial part of our appeal lies in our meticulous route setting, which is central to the climbing experiences we curate.
Our approach to designing climbing routes is climber-centric. We don’t just place holds randomly on walls; we thoughtfully craft each route to serve a unique purpose. Whether it’s to help you hone your climbing skills, expose you to a diverse range of movements, or to ensure that you have an enjoyable experience, each route is purpose-built with our climbers in mind.
We firmly believe that climbing should be more than just a workout; it should be a fun-filled adventure. That’s why our routes are designed to strike a balance between promoting physical fitness and offering an enjoyable experience. We provide climbers with the opportunity to train towards their climbing goals in an engaging and fun-filled environment.
Variety is the spice of life, and it’s no different at Rocksports. We offer an extensive selection of challenges with 100 top rope routes and a state-of-the-art bouldering hall. Our routes are frequently rotated, with a two-month problem turnover to ensure a fresh, exciting experience every time you visit. This constant evolution keeps our climbers engaged, always eager to conquer the next challenge.
In essence, Rocksports is committed to constantly elevating your climbing experience through our thoughtful and dynamic route setting. We invite you to join us, to experience the Rocksports difference and to discover new heights in your climbing journey.
