Northside also has food onsite to get climbers refuelled and refreshed to take on their next challenge. The space has the same signature furnishings and plants as the Abbotsford gym, and there are some wicked tunes to boot.

The Lactic Factory in Abbotsford was Melbourne’s first dedicated bouldering gym, and it’s where a lot of our local climbers discovered their love of the sport. The gym features 3.8-metre high walls sloping at all angles, and they’re all surrounded by soft mats in case you put your faith in the wrong climbing hold.
