Gear up for an epic canyoning and abseiling adventure in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park. Led by professional guides, you will abseil, climb, jump and swim through spectacular wilderness locations. A wholesome lunch and refreshments are included.
The Blue Mountains boasts the most extensive wet sandstone canyoning system on earth. This full day canyoning and abseiling adventure is the perfect way for beginners to experience this amazing landscape and the exciting sport of canyoning. Learn the skill of abseiling in the morning, beginning with short practice abseils before attempting more challenging rappels, and then descend through a spectacular canyon in the afternoon.
In summer, you’ll trek, swim, jump and scramble through the world-famous Empress Canyon. The journey will take you deep inside the sandstone cliff, concluding with an exhilarating waterfall abseil down Empress Falls. In the cooler months (typically May to September), the canyoning program is extended to include the popular Juggler Canyon. This means less water and no swimming required, but instead more abseils!

Sometimes wet weather may require postponing, but remember the weather in the mountains can be very different to that in Sydney. Assume experience will go ahead unless you have been contacted. If you have any concerns regarding the weather, please call the experience provider. If the experience does have to be cancelled due to bad weather, you will be rescheduled by the experience provider directly.
Please be wearing your swimwear at the start of the day - it is not easy to change into these before the canyon, though swimwear is not necessary during the cooler months. Please dress for a day outside in the mountains. Bring adequate sun protection, rain protection and warm layers. Ideal clothing is quick drying synthetics or wool. If the weather is cold then thermal underlayers are highly recommended.
