Highgate Group to equip new adventure facilities for Barkly Regional Council
January 10, 2022

Adventure leisure experts, The Highgate Group have announced they will be equipping two adventure facilities soon to be constructed for youth in Northern Territory's Barkly Regional Council. 

Geared to engage young people in activity that encourages self-esteem, critical thinking, teamwork and physical fitness, the projects are being installed in community centres in Tennant Creek and Ali Curung.

The Highgate Group, have secured the contracts with Barkly Regional Council, supported by financing received from the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF), a government funding stream to aid in building stronger regional communities.

Highgate’s design incorporates a range of state-of-the-art obstacles including bouldering and climbing walls, cargo climb nets, angled steps, pole forests and a warped wall.

Barkly Regional Council Mayor, Jeffrey McLaughlin advises “this is a great opportunity to teach our future leaders new skills and give them confidence to challenge themselves in a safe environment.  It will allow them the opportunity to explore new interests and above all build self-esteem and strength.”

Todd Austin of Highgate Group adds “we are thrilled to be the chosen supplier and installer for these important projects, which will no doubt provide the youth of Tennant Creek and Ali Curung with fantastic new developmental experiences and opportunities.”

Both projects are estimated to be completed in early 2022.

Australian owned and operated, The Highgate Group are leaders in design, installation and maintenance of adventure, training and recreation equipment. In operation for over 25 years, the group have provided solutions for a range of industries from leisure centres and occupational therapy settings, through to schools and Defence Force training facilities.
