Woodman Point recreation facilities

Recreation facilities at Woodman Point include the Cube, sports courts, beach and pathways.

The Cube

Completed in October 2007, the Woodman Point adventure training centre, known as "The CUBE' is an modern, innovative roping facility designed for all ages and abilities. Activities available include rock climbing, climbing elements, high ropes and abseiling from several heights both indoors and outdoors and a 120m long flying fox. Located next to the Recreation Oval, the CUBE has catered for groups of all ages and abilities from local sporting and community groups, workplace adventures for teachers and companies and to special needs groups, such as the Association for the Blind and MS Society.

The Cube has both indoor and outdoor activities, allowing for programs in all weather. The CUBE has an office, separate briefing room, change rooms, ablution facilities and personal storage space. Activities can range from basic participation in floor-based team-building activities, through to training for abseiling, high-rope courses and rock climbing. All programs are delivered by highly-trained and experienced instructors registered with the National Outdoor Leaders Registration Scheme.

Recreation space

At the centre of the camp is a large grassed recreation space. The grassed area is the setting for the 150m Cube flying fox. The oval is great for free time and self-directed activities. For a small fee you can hire a bag of sporting equipment to keep idle minds busy.

The turf is not perfect, but most of the groups who use this space are very happy with the surface. The oval may not be suitable for elite sporting groups who wish to train at a high level on a perfectly-even surface.

The site also has a fenced tennis/basketball court located across the oval from the CUBE that provides an open bitumen space for any group to use. To guarantee use of this court, bookings can be made at the office.

In addition, a system of internal dirt walkways/firebreaks provides great opportunities for quiet walks around the camp.

The beach

With the most picturesque view at the camp's doorstep, why would you look anywhere else?

Our beach is a safe, quiet stretch of coast, with waters that are protected from major swell by Garden and Carnac Islands. Woodman Point has access via two gates; one located near the major dormitories and the other located near the Acacia Day area. Groups are provided beach access keys and once the gate is open sealed pathways take you direct to the beach. Fishing from the Woodman Point and Coogee Beach jetties is very popular and you can also walk north along the beach towards Fremantle. Please be aware for general camp security we do ask that the gates remain locked.

Groups should be aware of their own duty of care in relation to water-based activity. Further guidance can be provided by staff at the camp, and ‘qualified' life guards can be hired for water supervision.

Coastal dual-use bike path

Extending many kilometres in either direction along the coast from Woodman Point, the local dual-use bike path is a good way of exploring the sunset coast. Just 1.5 kilometres north of the camp is the "John Graham Reserve", a picnic area and playground that is popular for family events. The bike path entry is just outside the front of the camp and is very cycle friendly.
