  • Australian School or Mountaineering (map)

Women's Wilderness Abseil Canyon

Join us on this exciting day of canyoning! Jump, swim and abseil your way through the Blue Mountains!

Serendipity is a beautiful canyon where you're likely to see some freshwater yabbies, birdlife, plants, cool fungi, and some amazing rock formations.

This is our recommended trip for those looking to get their first experience in a Wilderness Abseil Canyon. The canyon involves up to four short but exciting abseils, an optional water jump and some short swims. This is a great canyon for those that have never canyoned before but have outdoor experience, fitness and a keen sense of adventure.

This trip finishes on the Wollangambe river- A spectacular wide canyon deep in the wilderness beyond Mt Wilson.

Our qualified guide will talk you through the abseiling instructions before you start, so you'll feel safe and prepared so you can enjoy the rest of the day! 

Bring your friends or you're welcome to come on your own, you won't be the only one!
