Challenge yourself on the Circus Arts Byron Bay climbing wall

What a fantastic first experience on the flying trapeze at Circus Arts Byron Bay. I felt safe and fully supported at all times. I truly appreciated the team’s belief that I could do what they asked me to do which was way more than I was expecting or could have imagined I was capable of at my age. I will be back for more!

Margaret Thomas

Tried the flying trapeze class for the first time. The staff were warm, friendly, and reassuring. There was lots of encouragement and the atmosphere was welcoming. We would definitely go back!
