Indulge your inner dare devil in this action-packed half-day tour. You’ll abseil, zip line, jump and slide your way through the rainforest. No experience necessary, just a sense of adventure. You will be provided with the necessary equipment.

This half-day Cairns canyoning tour will see you zip line, abseil, jump and slide your way through a rocky watercourse of the Cairns rainforest.

Then it’s off to the Crystal Cascades, a series of idyllic waterfalls and swimming holes only 25 minutes from Cairns and well-known by locals.

At this point you’ll change into your gear before your guides take you to a secluded section of this area, not accessible to the public.

With a thorough briefing and full demonstrations throughout, your qualified guides have your safety front of mind. And while they want you to experience as much as possible during the morning, they won’t pressure you into anything you aren’t comfortable doing.

As your adventure progresses, take a moment to appreciate the wildlife. The electric blue Ulysses butterfly, a species unique to Tropical North Queensland, will no doubt be one of the curious creatures who make an appearance.     

After wrapping up in the late morning you’ll refuel on a light lunch before returning to your accommodation.  

Water levels affects the running of this tour; if the water levels are not sufficient on day of travel your tour will run from Behana Gorge

Welcome to the Jungle

Once you’ve been sorted out with the necessary equipment it’s back on the bus for a short trip to the Crystal Cascades where you’ll have a chance to change into your gear once off the bus.

After a short 20-minute walk to the viewing platform at Devil’s Drop, an area not accessible to the general public, your guides will take you through the safety procedures before the real adventure begins. After a further short walk, you’ll embark on your first controlled descent into the canyon via an 11m abseil beside a tropical waterfall. 

Slipping and Sliding

Give yourself a high-five at the bottom. You’ve achieved your first canyoning feat! Next up is the biggest drop of the day of 30m. This course will push you out of your comfort zone but keep in mind you do not need any experience to do this and you are under the guidance of highly-experienced guides. Your safety is their top priority. Keep in mind you’ll have the use of hand lines along the way so you’ll have something else to hang on to.

The course will continue with a total of eight abseils, three jumps, two slides and an exhilarating zip line with a water landing.   

That’s a Wrap

After more than two hours of thrill-seeking you’ll most likely be ready for a snack and a change into dry clothes. For the morning crew a light meal is provided. There’ll be a light snack for those in the afternoon session.
