Hi, Adventurer My Account

Women's Rainforest Canyon Adventure 31st October

Travel & Outdoor

Details

Abseil, cliff jump, slide and laugh your way down the beautiful Illawarra Escarpment Rainforest Canyon with a group of women.

Immerse yourself in the fresh beautiful waters of the rainforest. Enjoy the spectacle of some of the South Coats best waterfalls all falling into one breathtaking natural gorge as we go.

The Rainforest Canyon finishes at a picturesque waterfall and rock pool, perfect for swimming in the sun. Here you can practice your rock climbing on a boulder wall and jump and slide to your heart s content.

You don't need any previous experience or rope handling skills. We will take you through the skills on how to abseil and all safety requirements. We ask you are ready to move that body of yours on a full day of rock sliding, abseiling and walking through the canyon.

A full day of adventure with us includes a delicious lunch and snacks, and all adventures include modern and top of the line equipment to ensure that you have the best possible experience.
