Hi, Adventurer My Account

Women's Rainforest Canyon Sunday 4th December

Travel & Outdoor

Details

Are you ready to strap into a harness, slip into a wetsuit and abseil down a waterfall in the most majestic canyon in NSW?

Immerse yourself in a beautiful rainforest canyon and enjoy the best waterfalls and breathtaking natural gorges.

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 canyon experience or rope handling skills, just some good mobility for walking over uneven rocks. We will take you through the skills on how to abseil and all safety requirements.

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.
