How Much Does a Trampoline Cost in Australia?

Most trampolines in Australia fall into the $400 – $1000 range. When spending $400 or more, you have access to better brands, better safety features, and more premium materials.

There’s no denying that trampolines are a fun investment for the whole family.

However, if you’re thinking of buying one, it’s important to know what it will cost up front.

Below is a breakdown of how much you can expect to pay for various types of trampolines in Australia.

Cheap trampolines ($100-$400)

The most basic trampolines cost as little as $100-$400. However, these are usually smaller sizes and can only accommodate one jumper at a time.

At the upper end of this range (around $400), you should be able to pick up a budget Medium-sized trampoline (10 ft) with a safety net.

These can be a good option if it will only get a small amount of use e.g. at a holiday house, or if you’re on a budget.

Trampolines made with cheaper materials tend to break down faster than those made of stronger, more durable materials – especially in Australia’s harsh climate.

Keep in mind that while you may be saving money now, you may end up spending more on replacement parts or even an entirely new trampoline later.

Not all trampolines that fall in this price range are poorly made, though.

Mid-range trampolines ($400 upwards)

Most trampolines on the market fall into this category.

When spending $400 or more, you have access to better brands, better safety features, and more premium materials.

There are many trampolines from brands like Oz Trampolines, Jumpflex, and Vuly that fall in the $400 – $1000 range.

Keep in mind that the size of the trampoline you choose will significantly impact the price. An XL trampoline can cost almost double that of an S.

High-end trampolines ($1500+)

If you really splash out, you’ll be able to purchase the top-of-the-line models from premium brands like Vuly or Springfree.

Springfree’s trampolines use flexible composite fibreglass rods instead of springs. They lay underneath the trampoline’s rim, so there’s nothing for kids to catch on or hurt themselves on.

Vuly’s Thunder and Thunder Pro also feature a no-spring design with next-generation leaf springs. They offer advanced safety features and superior bounce.

Expect to pay anywhere from $2000 – $3000 for the trampolines mentioned above.

Features you get on more expensive trampolines

More expensive trampolines will often come with more features, but not always.

Here’s what to look out for:

  • A safety net that fully encloses the trampoline. The best safety nets will be “contact free” so jumpers don’t come into contact with the supporting poles.
  • High-quality mesh on the safety net that is durable but not abrasive on contact
  • Self-closing entry
  • Thick and sturdy safety pads around the springs
  • Springless design – means bouncers won’t come into contact with springs
  • A ladder
  • A sturdy frame. The best frames will usually weigh more than others and be made from galvanised steel.
  • Simple assembly process
  • A good warranty usually covers manufacturing faults, but also issues like spring breakage resulting from normal use. Some even offer a lifetime warranty for their frame.
  • A higher weight capacity so older children (and even adults) can use it too
  • Size – larger trampolines will generally cost more but are more suitable for more than one person.
  • Good bounce – it’s a trampoline after all!
