The following canyons require Abseiling and Canyoning experience. You must be able to:

  • Easily swim 100m.
  • Carry a 10kg backpack for up to 10hrs over rough tracks and creek/canyon beds.
  • Move safely up and down small cliffs as well as over smooth slippery rocks and boulders.
  • Demonstrate a high level of fitness and endurance.

Grade: Hard $300

7:00am - 6:00pm

This canyon is not for the faint-hearted. Three tricky abseils are negotiated before you reach the main creek, which starts with a bit of creek walking and scrambling around big boulders.

Soon the first highlight of the canyon is reached: the two main abseils which lead you down a vertical waterfall. The stance between the abseils is a chockstone, wedged in an airy position half way down the waterfall. This is canyoning at its best!

Another abseil and jump gets us to the end of the canyon. To walk out we sneak up through steep gullies between rock faces and walk along narrow ledges.

The excitement continues at an easy 10 metre rock climb 300 metres above the base of the canyon. Easy walking takes us back to the car park.

Grade: Hard $300

6:00am - 6:00pm

There are only 10 trips per year allowed in this Canyon

A long and narrow canyon, this is one of the hardest trips we run. The approach is via the  Wollangambe exit track, then up and over the next ridge.

A 10 metre abseil takes you to the canyon floor. The canyon then narrows dramatically with several more abseils up to 15 metres and a few duck unders with pitch black tunnel swims.

The final spectacular section is called the green room, with its magical filtered light. We then descend the middle section of the Wollangambe Canyon passing 2 excellent water jumps on route.

The walk out is about 1.5 hours.

If you have done Claustral and Butterbox before this may be the canyon for you!!!

Grade: Hard $300

6:00am - 6:00pm

A 30 minute bushwalk takes you to the start of the canyon, where wet suits are donned and the adventure begins!

After a swim and down-climb we arrive at the famous abseil point into the vertical tunnels of the "Black Hole of Calcutta". This comprises three very spectacular waterfall abseils which follow one after the other, culminating in a narrow 20 metre swim. A truly fantastic experience.

Soon after the swim we reach the junction of Ranon Brook, and from here it is another 1km or so of wonderful canyoning. Following a rest at Thunder Canyon junction, there is more excitement water jumps, slides, down climbs and swims before we reach the Rainbow Ravine exit point and lunch.

From here it is a solid 2 hr uphill walk back to the car park, for a well-earned drink and snack.

Grade: Moderate/hard $300

6:00am - 6:00pm

An exciting and stunningly beautiful canyon with good swims and 5 abseils.

There is a dark, narrow section where you need a torch. You will squeeze through, just like caving, as the cavern exit looks just like a "Hole in the Wall".

The canyon finishes where it meets the mighty Bungleboori Creek. You will swim upstream in the Bungleboori and enjoy a magnificent bushwalk back to the vehicle.
