Blue Mountains: Women's Intermediate Canyoning Adventure

Blue Mountains: Women's Intermediate Canyoning Adventure // 2nd February - $297

This Intermediate Canyoning Adventure, brought to you by She Went Wild and the Australian School of Mountaineering, is ideal for those that have never canyoned before but have outdoor experience, fitness and a keen sense of adventure.

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

The canyon involves up to 4 short but exciting abseils, an optional water jump and some short swims.

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