Small-Group Full-Day Canyoning and Abseiling Adventure from Katoomba
USD 144.34
Abseiling and canyoning are some of the most thrilling experiences you can have in the Blue Mountains. But if you are inexperienced, you may feel apprehensive about embarking upon such an adventure. Skip the worry on this guided entry-level adventure that allows you to gear-up and abseil the cliffs of Katoomba, before descending through a canyon, all under the watchful eyes of your guide. To ensure that you receive personal attention, the tour is limited to just 10 people.
What to Expect
Upon departure from the Paddy Pallin Adventure Center in Katoomba at 8:45am, you'll board your vehicle and head to the area where you'll begin the first part of your adventurous day focused on acquiring your abseiling skills. Start with several short practice abseils and then move up to some higher challenges.

After a catered lunch of gourmet sandwiches, test your new skills with a trip through Empress Canyon. The journey takes you deep inside the sandstone cliff where you'll wade, scramble, swim and jump into pools. Complete your canyon journey with a thrilling waterfall abseil down Empress Falls.

In the cooler months (typically May 1st to September 30th), you'll descend Juggler Canyon and explore the lower section of the Blue Mountains' own 'Grand Canyon.' This trip does not involve getting in to water (though you will get wet feet), while descending multiple abseils to reach the end of the canyon.

From the end of the canyon adventure, you'll hike back to the bus and take in some of the most impressive views to be found anywhere in the Blue Mountains along the way. Your approximate return to the Adventure Center is 4:30pm.
