Suggested Activities:


The Mini Jump - 30 metres

A brilliant half day abseiling adventure.

The abseiling starts with a beginner friendly 5 metre high cliff. Your instructors are close at hand to encourage and explain the techniques.

With your instructor explaining each step, you progress through to a 15 metre high cliff finishing on a thrilling 30 metre high drop.

The setting is beautiful bushland, making it both a scenic and exciting adventure!

The Super Jump - 60 metres

If you want some excitement in your life try 18 storeys of overhanging rock. The most popular abseiling trip.

After completing the 5, 15 and 30 metre abseils at the Mini Jump site (see above), you tuck into a nutritious and tasty lunch.

Then comes "the big one", the 18 storey overhang! The views are fantastic and the adrenaline will be pumping as you descend to the valley floor 60 metres below.

Summer Canyoning

Empress Canyon - Grade: Moderate

A fantastic abseiling/canyon combination, one of the mountains best!

The first half of the day is abseiling, starting with a 5 metre high cliff and building up to 30 metre high cliffs during the morning.

After lunch, it's a scenic 20 minute walk to the start of the canyon. You wade into the creek that descends into the narrow slot-like canyon and within a few seconds you are jumping into a rock pool, the first of several jumps and swims. This canyon is an exciting affair with water jumps, exhilarating swims, waterslides and fantastic scenery.

The final abseil out of the canyon is one of the best waterfall abseils in the mountains. Clip into the rope, step back and follow the 30 metre waterfall down to the deep rock pool below. This is not just a brilliant waterfall abseil but also a fantastic photo opportunity.
