The large Octa Net was a joint project of the Rotary Club of Glen Waverley and Monash City Council to commemorate the centenary of Rotary International which was formed in 1905.

Rotary International is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. It is a secular organization open to all persons regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or political preference.

The first Rotary Club was formed when attorney Paul P. Harris called together a meeting of three business acquaintances in downtown Chicago, at Harris' friend Gustave E. Loehr's office in the Unity Building on Dearborn Street on February 23, 1905.

Note: The Giant Octa Net is 10.45 m bouncy climbing challenge with both vertical and horizontal climbing possibilities. The route to the top is a great challenge and gives users a strong sense of achievement when they reach the top of the mast and enjoy the view of the entire area.
