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 (can be done face first) the canyon twists and turns with amazing rock walls.
