Full Day Intermediate Canyoning
Canyoning is the perfect summer adventure in a natural playground. The Blue Mountains is a beautiful area and some of its most spectacular sights are hidden away from the towns and highway. Created over thousands of years the narrow canyon gorges are spectacular places.
No previous experience is required. Backpacks, dry bags, abseiling equipment, lunch, NPWS entry fee and full length wetsuits are included for all canyons. Depending on conditions and National Parks restrictions you will experience either Sheep Dip and Rocky Creek, Wollangambe, Fortress, or another canyon – all fantastic canyoning experiences for beginners.
$270 per person incl GST. Private group departures available.

All BMAC full 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, wetsuit, waterproof bag, 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
Comfortable clothes suited to the conditions. Katoomba is 1000m above sea level and you can expect cooler temperatures than in Sydney. As a general rule we recommend:
- Long sleeves and pants for sun and scratch protection
- Wool, synthetic and fleece fabrics (no cotton or denim)
- Closed shoes
- Sun hat, sunscreen and warm beanie
- Rain jacket
- Sneakers / sandshoes and woollen socks to wear in the canyon. These will get wet!
- Hair tie for those with long hair
- Swimming costume to wear under your wetsuit
- Personal medication (Ventolin/EpiPen etc.)
We believe our canyoning adventures are heaps of fun, and we want to ensure you have the best experience possible in the remote regions we explore. It’s important to us that you have the fitness and skills to enjoy your time with us so please read on:
Fitness: Participants are required to have a good level of fitness. There is some bushwalking during the day, including some steep uphill sections. All participants are required to carry a backpack weighing up to 10kg throughout the day.
Abseiling: Abseiling experience is desirable but not essential, as we will teach these skills as we progress through the canyon.
Mobility: Participants are required to have good mobility as we will be moving through uneven terrain in a remote environment.
Swimming: This canyon involves swimming. If you have any concerns about your swimming ability, please contact our office.
Also: BMAC requires each participant to follow all instructions from our guides, to maintain a safe work environment and ensure the wellbeing and safety of the whole group.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns, we’d be delighted to talk with you.
