What you can expect

The Empress Canyon experience in the Blue Mountains serves as the ideal introduction for those wanting to get started with the canyoning experience. This tour features a blend of lush rainforest, rock jumps and culminating in a final 30m abseil down the side of a waterfall! Join your friendly and professional guides as you head into this beautiful, untouched part of Australia and learn the key points of fundamental canyoning technique, climbing, jumping, swimming, rappelling and otherwise navigating your way from one challenge to the next.

Located in the Valley of the Waters Creek near Wentworth Falls, Empress Canyon offers easy access alongside a number of jumps and short swims that are ideal for getting your feet wet with canyoning as a whole - you'll likely love it so much you'll want to do a higher level in the future! Throughout the experience you'll be donning top-notch equipment including a thick wetsuit, canyoning harness, backpack and helmet which will provide all the warmth and safety you'll need to focus on the adventure.

The tour was just brilliant

The tour was just brilliant. The scenery was incredible, the tour guides were super nice and the experience we had was just great. Whether experienced or not experienced, the tour should be suitable for everyone. The guides really knew every stone and every drop of water and brought us down safely. Only the shoes are a little dirty at the End. Anyway, not the last time we did it.
