Overview

  • There are only 10 trips per year allowed in this Canyon!
  • A long and narrow canyon, this is one of the hardest trips we run.
  • The approach is via the Wollangambe exit track, then up and over the next ridge.
  • A 10 metre abseil takes you to the canyon floor. The canyon then narrows dramatically with several more abseils up to 15 metres and a few duck unders with pitch black tunnel swims.
  • The final spectacular section is called the green room, with its magical filtered light.
  • We then descend the middle section of the Wollangambe Canyon passing 2 excellent water jumps on route.
  • The walk out is about 1.5 hours.

Whungee Wheengee Canyon

Whungee Wheengee is a challenging canyon on the north side of the Wollangambe River – with lots of swims, numerous tricky down climbs, and a couple of abseils thrown in.


It features two main constrictions of high quality, a few short abseils and depending on water levels, a couple of duck unders. The usual exit is to continue down the Wollangambe through one of its more impressive sections. The canyon was named so as to be confusing with Wheengee Whungee Creek at Kanangra.
