If you are looking for the ultimate canyoning adventure then this is for you. Jump, slide and abseil your way around a 50 metre deep quartzite canyon then prepare for the afternoon session over a tasty gourmet lunch of fresh local produce. This experience showcases the finest in Tasmanian adventure.
If you’re keen for an adventurous way to tackle one of the most beautiful landscapes in Tasmania, this is what you’re looking for. Canyoning is the most exciting way to experience the World Heritage labyrinth at Cradle Mountain, and it can be done in one action-packed day out.
Kick off your day adventure with a 40 minute walk through grass plains and lush rainforest, all the way to the opening of the canyon. Here, you’ll change into your safety gear and wetsuit, and your guides will brief you on the action ahead. First thing’s first, get your heart racing with the steep descent off the quartzite cliff face as you abseil into the canyon.
Once you’re inside the Cradle Mountain’s Dove Canyon you’ll make your way downstream through the wilderness, tackling the natural features as you go. Between launching yourself off waterfalls, taking on natural waterslides, jumping obstacles, swimming across pools of water and whatever else the canyon presents, you’ll be riding an adrenaline high for hours.
Along the way you’ll stop to refuel with a hearty and healthy gourmet lunch of fresh local produce and hot chocolate. Then it’s back into action as you explore further into the wild depths of the Cradle Mountain cave. By the time you find your way out you’ll be thoroughly exhausted, muddy, and wide eyed from discovering the underground beauty of one of Tasmania’s most iconic landmarks. Canyoning turns the wilderness into your natural playground, and you need to try it for yourself to understand the thrill.
