Macquarie Pass Canyon

Trip type: 
Canyoning
Difficulty: 
Medium
Start date: 
Sunday, 13 January 2019 - 7:00am to 8:15pm

With summer definitely here its time to canyon! 

My wife and I are planning to head through Macquarie Pass Canyon on Sunday - a wet creek walking and abseiling trip with a few small slot like sections. We are happy to take up to three other alongs to make for a maximum group of five. Note this canyon has a car shuffle required to access it so another driver is a must (if we don't get another driver we will do Jerrara Creek Canyon at Bungoina instead). 

The trip is fairly long if you do the whole top to bottom canyon which is our plan. Previous abseiling experience is a must and priority will be given to participants who have canyoned previously. Please send me an email advising of your abseiling skill level and canyoning experience when signing up if I haven't been on a trip with you before. 

It is a two hour drive from Canberra so we will be leaving at 0700, and likley not back until 8pm Sunday evening. There will be a pre trip on Thursday this week at the gear store at 6pm.
