    • Experience a thrilling overnight stay on a portaledge suspended on a vertical cliff face 300m above the ground
    • Optional extra "The Descent", one of the highest abseils in the world (optional, available at cost)
    • All training and safety equipment included

    This unique experience includes a thrilling overnight stay on a portaledge suspended on a vertical cliff face hundreds of metres above the ground. After a thorough training session you will abseil down to your portaledge, perched high on the majestic cliffs of the North Wall of Mount Buffalo gorge. From this spectacular location you can absorb the breathtaking views whilst you enjoy your dinner and settle in for an unforgettable night sleeping on the wall. Dawn will further reveal the beauty of this incredible environment, as you wake to enjoy your breakfast and marvel at your amazing surroundings.

    Following breakfast you have the choice of either ascending to the cliff top or, for those thirsting for more adventure, completing "The Descent" to the valley floor ("The Descent" is available at extra cost). "The Descent" is an exposed and exciting abseil ranked amongst the highest in the world.

Once completed, you can justifiably feel proud of having participated in an activity that has been shared by very few people in the world. This experience will undoubtedly provide an enormous sense of achievement and memories that will last a lifetime.
