Geelong’s Indoor Climbing Centre


The Rock Adventure Centre has been Geelong's vertical obsession since 2001.  With a huge variety of climbs from beginners to experts, gear shop, cafe and an extensive bouldering and training area - The Rock has all your climbing needs covered.



Upstairs, we have our MASSIVE bouldering cave, with over 500m² of constantly changing problems of every style and grade.  Fully padded floor, climbers of all ages and skill levels can get up there to test physical limits, and train for strength and endurance.

Climbing for all ages


The Rock caters for kids of all ages, ask us about our Birthday Parties!



Cafe - Real espresso coffee, using locally roasted beans,  hot chocolates, cold drinks & snacks available.

Had a 7th birthday party here. It was great fun and the staff were excellent. Probably the best birthday party venue I've been to

Amazing birthday party for Max at The Rock adventure centre. The staff were truly wonderful - giving their help and expertise with the rock climbing, in addition to putting on a great birthday party. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and their attitude was great. Absolutely 5 star effort. Thanks guys, we will definitely be back
Good climb experience. Downstairs was great. Upstairs had recently been flooded. Still accessible but strong wet smell. Staff were great. Plenty of good climbs to try. Shoes can be hired.
