TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

About us

  • Established in 1989 we have taken over 100,000 people on adventures ranging from a 3-hour abseil session to multi-day snow and ice climbing courses.
  • We are fully insured and licensed by National Parks and Blue Mountains City Council.

Itinerary

  • After lunch, it's a scenic 20 minute walk to the start of the canyon.
  • You wade into the creek that descends into the narrow slot-like canyon and within a few seconds you are jumping into a rock pool, the first of several jumps and swims.
  • This canyon is an exciting affair with water jumps, exhilarating swims, waterslides and fantastic scenery.
  • The final abseil out of the canyon is one of the best waterfall abseils in the mountains. Clip into the rope, step back and follow the 30 metre waterfall down to the deep rock pool below.
  • This is not just a brilliant waterfall abseil but also a fantastic photo opportunity.

We provide

  • All you need to do is dress for the weather, bring running shoes you can get wet, swimwear, a litre of water and a camera.
  • We provide everything else including lunch on all our full day trips.
  • A courtesy waterproof camera is provided for most canyon trips (please ask at time of booking).
