Interested in trying canyoning but not feeling too adventurous? This half day canyoning experience is the perfect relaxed adventure for beginners, families or the less-intrepid. Journey through quartzite gorges, button grass and billy pines and if you're lucky spot a wandering wombat.
Your tour begins with a 20 minute walk along the picturesque Cradle Valley Boardwalk to the beginning of the canyon, through open gum forests and button grass plains. Once you have changed into your canyoning gear you will be briefed by the guides and walk into the canyon. Once in the river make your way downstream overcoming multiple small rapids and rock jumps by walking, swimming, jumping and sliding.
You will stop along the way at several points of natural and historical significance to learn how the valley was formed and how local entrepreneurs used the waterway to their advantage.
