Bring out your inner dare devil canyoning in the Cairns rainforest where you abseil, zip line, slide and jump beside waterfalls and into pools. Crystal Canyon is located in a secluded section of Crystal Cascades where the excitement of canyoning a rocky watercourse can be enjoyed in a safe and controlled environment under the supervision of experienced guides.
This half day canyoning adventure will push you outside your comfort zone as you tackle the challenges of conquering heights, boulders and mother nature in the pristine beauty of a secluded rainforest watercourse!
Your day begins with pickup from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation. Your group of 12 people maximum and 2 adventure guides (who carry all the heavy equipment required for canyoning) will be provided with all necessary safety gear including canyoning harness, helmet, shoes, long-sleeve thermal top for sun protection, neoprene shorts and a low-profile life jacket all padded to provide extra protection from the rocks. The adventure starts at the viewing platform at Devil’s Drop in Crystal Cascades where you leave the public access areas, for the higher reaches of the tropical watercourse. After a detailed safety talk and short walk up the track, your first abseil of the day is an 11 meter controlled descent down a huge granite rock beside the first waterfall in this section.
Cool off at the bottom in the slippery dip slide, which will lead you to the next challenge and the biggest drop of the day - a 30 meter abseil down the Big Cheese! The course continues with a total of 8 rappels, 3 jumps, 2 slides and a very cool zip line! Along the way you will also have the use of hand lines to ensure ultimate safety. Keep your eyes open for wildlife including monitor lizards, birds and an array of colorful butterflies and dragonflies which can often be seen in the area.
Upon completion of the course you'll enjoy a light lunch and comfort stop before being transported back to your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation.
