Experience the thrill of abseiling in the You Yangs regional park located only 45 minutes from Melbourne. Abseiling is a great activity for the whole family, friends and individuals. It’s an experience like no other. It will heighten your senses as you descend the rock face whilst leaving you with a great sense of achievement.
It’s a great way to spend your afternoon whilst learning some new skills along the way, and by abseiling in a safe and controlled manner with qualified guides it’s a fantastic way to face your fears and experience the thrill of abseiling.
Once we are all kitted up we will have a talk about safety and demonstrate how to abseil correctly after which it will be time to hit the rock for your first attempt at abseiling woo hoo!!!
Guided by your instructor you will be tied in securely via two ropes your abseil line (static rope) which you will control and also a safety line which is controlled by an instructor! Okay now it’s time to stand on the edge. Adrenaline rush!
It’s all about mind over matter! If you gather the courage to travel down at speed, it's a real adrenaline rush. You are attached to 2 ropes remember, your abseil line and a safety line which is controlled by your instructor should you get a little too excited!
The point when your feet are on the edge, and you are looking at the ground 30 metres below with nothing separating you but thin air. You may think "What the heck am I doing?" this thought has popped into many heads - but once you start descending and get used to the feeling of running down a near vertical cliff, you'll be running back to the top for another go, and getting faster each time.
You can enjoy as many abseils as you can fit into the session. In-between turns take in the breathtaking scenery of the You Yangs regional park and surrounding areas.
I had a super fun time! Adam is professional & very approachable - as is his pup, Henry - who has a calming influence on the group! The equipment is well looked after and is properly fitted. The You Yangs offer sweeping vistas of the bay and countryside which are thoroughly enjoyed whilst descending. Instructions on safety & technique are clear and dispensed with humour. Adam has a wonderful knack of build one's confidence. He had one young lady (who was initially nervous on her 1st abseil), build up gradual courage and ended up performing 2x rappelling (front facing) descents!! It doesn't matter if you've never done this - just do it = )
Adam was excellent, he has the teaching skill of being calm and clear when giving instructions and therefore helping participants to think their way through the activity. Good work. Thanks Adam, Linden and I really enjoyed it and feel confident to take on more.
It was great, Adam was relax and made everyone felt comfortable. I took my niece who was 15 and had an amazing time.
Paul was great to deal with, very accomicationg and good with the kids.
