Abseiling & Grand Canyon
An ideal introduction to canyoning. During the morning, participants learn to abseil at our exclusive North Boyce abseiling venue. You get stacks of abseils on a variety of drops from 3 metres to 25 metres. The afternoon trip through Grand Canyon is the highlight of the day. The fun starts with a 20 metre overhanging abseil, followed by swimming, scrambling and wading. Longer than Empress Falls canyon, the beauty and serenity of this canyon will surprise you, with ferny glades and towering rock walls providing a spectacular setting. The walk out takes about 45 minutes through temperate rainforest, finishing at Evans Lookout with a spectacular view of the Grose Valley.
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.
