Malaita Wall Abseil Expedition - 3/4 Day
Abseiling Expeditions involve descending some of the large clifflines (approx. 200 metres) of the upper Blue Mountains in a series of stages or ‘pitches’. No experience is necessary but be ready for some exposure to heights. Most pitches finish on a large ledge or cave and lunch is usually served with a spectacular view.
The first 45metre abseil of Malaita Wall is onto a natural platform far above the valley and is sure to make your heart pound! This is a five pitch journey down into the Jamison Valley with amazing views of the Three Sisters, Mt Solitary and the Ruined Castle. Walk out via the Furber Steps or catch the Scenic Railway (extra charge applies) for an easy ride back up.
All BMAC 3/4 day participants receive a generous picnic lunch, provided by our local deli. Select one of their delicious, gourmet sandwich options when you book your trip. Altitude Deli can cater to most dietary requirements with notice, so please let us know of your needs as soon as possible.

We will provide you with a backpack, helmet, harness, carabiners and abseil descender. We also cover your National Parks and Wildlife Service park entry fee. While we encourage all participants to bring their own weather-appropriate clothing (see below), we have spare warm clothing and rain jackets if needed.
Things to bring
As a general rule we recommend:
- Comfortable clothes suited to the weather
- Enclosed shoes
- Water bottle – at least 1.5 litres.
- Personal medication (Ventolin/EpiPen etc.)
We believe our abseiling adventures are heaps of fun, but what goes down must come up! It’s important to us that you have the fitness and skills to enjoy your abseiling day so please read on:
Fitness: Participants are required to have a moderate level of fitness. While abseiling down the cliff is not particularly physically demanding, once participants reach the bottom they need to walk back to the top to re-join the group.
Abseiling: Abseiling experience is desirable but not essential.
If you have any questions or concerns, we’d be delighted to talk with you.
$230 per person incl GST.
Private group departures available.
We’ll run this adventure on any day for 2 or more (as long as we aren’t booked out), so let us know a date that suits you. Travelling on your own? We’ll happily join you up with a group that is already departing.
