Abseiling & Empress Falls Canyon

A fantastic abseiling and canyon day for beginners. It’s not hard to see why this trip is so popular!

Learn the fundamentals of abseiling in the morning at our exclusive North Boyce abseiling site. Abseils range in height from 2.5 m to 25 m. Leap and bound down the wall on our overhanging abseils. You get to try lots of abseils as you hone your technique and gain confidence.

After a delicious picnic lunch you put your newly acquired skills to use in the exciting and action packed Empress Falls Canyon. Scrambling, wading, swimming and jumping leads to a thrilling climax – an amazing 30m abseil straight down a pounding waterfall. The walk out is short and steep, 25 minutes up the stairs and you’re back at the carpark.

Deep Pass Canyon Explorer

This adventure visits a canyon, cave and beautiful open gullies located within the Wollemi National Park, north west of Katoomba. The grandeur of the canyon almost defies description. Carved over millions of years by the relentless action of running water, Deep Pass canyon can be traversed without swimming, but you can expect to get your feet wet and muddy. Whilst swimming is optional, cold feet are not, but you will quickly forget the icy waters as you are lost in wonder at your surroundings. If you are up for the challenge your guide will take you through a narrow cave and squeeze you through the T-slot. Once all the action is over you’ll walk back to the car via an easy Fire Trail. You’ll love this remote corner of the Blue Mountains. This trip is suitable for people with a range of fitness levels. No canyoning experience is necessary.

 $250 per person incl GST. Private group departures available.

Fortress Creek Canyon

Fortress Creek Canyon near Leura is a full day canyon. The canyon section of Fortress is preceded by a magnificent trek along a delightful walled-in creek, passing through a variety of habitats from hanging swamp to rainforest. The canyon itself involves some constricted swims between narrow sandstone walls, rock scrambling, waterjumps and an overhanging abseil (suitable for first time abseilers). The canyon ends unexpectedly on the edge of a 100 metre precipice high above the spectacular expanse of the Grose Valley. Relax on a sunny rock shelf as you enjoy your lunch with breathtaking views all around. The walk back takes a little over an hour on average with the first 20 minutes being the steepest. Much of the walk is through open heathland with possibly the best views in the Blue Mountains from the top of the Fortress.

 $250 per person incl GST. Private group departures available.

Sheep Dip & Rocky Creek Canyons

Two magnificent canyons rolled into one great trip. There is no abseiling or liloing, but loads of fun, fantastic waterjumps, waterslides and short swims. Sheep Dip canyon consists of a narrow twisting chasm with a chain of pretty pools, natural waterslides and small waterfalls. Sheep Dip finishes with a unique plunge into a circular man hole. After the high rolling action of Sheep Dip, an easy walk through lush rainforest brings us to the majestic Rocky Creek canyon. Much deeper and darker than Sheep Dip, Rocky has a sublime, awe-inspiring atmosphere. Rocky Creek starts with several short, dark swims and climb-downs. After a superb waterslide (which can be done face first) the canyon twists and turns with amazing rock walls.

 $250 per person incl GST. Private group departures available.

Wollangambe Canyon

A full day canyon spent floating on lilos (inflatable airbeds) through long, deep pools. Wollangambe is different from most other canyons, being of a more open, sunny nature. Drifting down this crystal-clear river between the towering rock walls is like a touch of paradise. We pause for lunch on an unspoilt sandy beach. If time permits, we can explore up into the lower reaches of some of the canyons that join the river – including the spectacular “Green Room”. For the more adventurous there are some optional waterjumps off the canyon walls. The steady uphill walk out takes 1 ½ hours.

 $250 per person incl GST. Private group departures available.
