Adventure Aid

Support the fire-recovery and restoration of the Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains are no stranger to bushfires, but what happened this summer was unprecedented. Whilst thankfully some areas remain lush, green and able to be enjoyed, reportedly as much as 80% of the World Heritage area has been impacted by the bushfires.

As Keith Muir of the Colong Foundation for Wilderness has stressed in his recent message of hope, the bush of the Blue Mountains will recover strongly if we help it to. With that in mind, the community of outdoor adventure guides who work in the Blue Mountains have come together to create Adventure Aid - a weekend of Blue Mountains adventures to raise money and awareness for the environmental recovery effort.

 

Adventure Aid aims to support the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and Blue Mountains City Council to do what needs to be done to make it safe and environmentally responsible for us to once again enjoy the canyons, cliffs, campsites and tracks we treasure. The support will be channelled through organisations such as the NSW Canyoning Association and their Canyon Care program, which already helps NPWS care for the canyons that the Blue Mountains are world-famous for.

 

Adventure Aid brings together the guides and the companies and organisations that employ them, to deliver a series of adventures on the weekend of 29th February - 1st March 2020 from which the proceeds will go to this important cause.

 

Blue Mountains Adventure Company is offering a very special opportunity… we call it The Grandest Canyon – Glow Worms by Night. This unique canyon adventure is taking place on the evening of SATURDAY 29 FEBRUARY 2020 (and if the adventure isn't unique enough then the date only occurs every four years). 

 

Our awesome guides are donating their labour while we are donating the other vital ingredients such as the equipment, transport, and insurance to create this amazing Blue Mountains adventure. To find out more and book your place on this designated Adventure Aid canyon adventure, click the link below. When booking, select SATURDAY 29 FEBRUARY 2020 to ensure your trip cost supports Adventure Aid's fundraising endeavours.


In addition to supporting the Adventure Aid fundraising efforts by enjoying this unique adventure, whilst in the Blue Mountains we’d also encourage you to spend generously with other local businesses that have suffered during the fires due to a lack of visitors.

And lastly, please help spread the word that many parts of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area have already reopened to the public and encourage people to come visit us for an adventure.

 

We respectfully acknowledge the Darug, Darkinjung, Dharawal, Gundungurra, Wanaruah, and Wiradjuri language groups as the traditional custodians of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and thank them for sharing this beautiful land with us.
