Canyoning

Canyoning is a highly popular activity which draws together the skills of bushwalking, rock climbing, mountaineering and even caving. Canyoners descend creeks, waterfalls, over boulders and swim or float past spectacular scenery. 

Canyoning at any level can be challenging. They can be part day, full day or multi-day activities which may involve scrambling over wet and slimy boulders, abseiling down waterfalls and swimming in very cold water. What goes down must come up again ... eventually. Walking out of a canyon is part of the experience and often the most strenuous part of the trip. 

Club members often run trips to canyons close to Canberra including Tuross, Bungonia and Macquarie Pass. Further afield, trips will often take in canyons in Blue Mountains, Kanangra and Wollemi.
 

The club typically runs canyon trips when daylight savings time is in place. Outside of this period, trips are limited by colder temperatures and shorter days. That said, there are a handful of dry canyons which are suitable to do in the winter.
