Requirements: Strong bushwalking skills and is happy to walk off tracks. Any abseiling or rope skills would be very beneficial. Being able to swim short distances. You will need to bring a wetsuit as the water in the canyons can get a bit cold.

 

I plan on going up to the blue mountains (near Sydney) for the easter break. Canyoning involves following a watercourse through very narrow canyons and often involve short swims and abseiling (sometimes down waterfalls). The environment inside canyons can be very different to surrounding areas, and helps add to the adventure of the sport.

I plan on going up Thursday and staying somewhere along the way. The canyons will be day trips, we will either hire a house for accomidation, stay in a cabin of camp somewhere.

I plan on joinging up with Shannons caving trip in the same area after canyoning, it may be possible for you to do the same.
