Xavier Wilson and Liam Damcevski never had so much fun just hanging around.
The six and seven-year-old respectively weren't alone. They were part of a group of blind and low vision children trying their hand at indoor rock climbing on Friday.
As part of its holiday program, Vision Australia took the youngsters aged six to 14-years-old, to Hangdog Climbing Gym in Coniston.
The youngsters scaled the rock walls under the guidance of Vision Australia staff, who said the program was about exposing children who are blind or have low vision to new activities.
"Indoor rock climbing is the sort of thing that might be a typical activity for a lot of kids during the holidays, but for our clients there can sometimes be barriers to them enjoying the same things as their sighted peers," Vision Australia cccupational therapist Hannah Sutherland said.
"Events like this allow us to introduce our clients to a new activity in a safe and supportive environment.
"They might decide it's something they want to pursue further and if that's the case, we can look at what we might need to be done to support them to do that."
She added these events were also valuable in helping children who are blind or have low vision to continue to develop their social, communication and motor skills, as well having benefits for their families and carers.
"We find some people don't know where to turn to for support or fully understand what services are out there, so events like this can also be a great introduction to Vision Australia and how we can support them," Ms Sutherland said.
"It also helps for parents and carers to know they aren't the only ones facing certain challenges.
"They also get the chance to share their knowledge about what works for them when it comes to overcoming those challenges."
Ms Sutherland also thanked the Lions Club of Wollongong for their generous donation which covered the cost of the event for the clients.
