Blue Mountains Wild Adventures Canyoning and Abseiling

17 Nov

Canyoning Abseiling Blue Mountains

Love to get wild in the Blue Mountains?! Then jump on an awesome canyoning or abseiling day or half day trip with Blue Mountains Wild Adventures to experience the best spots the World Heritage listed National Park has to offer. James and his guides are fantastic and go to heaps of great sites like Claustral Canyon, Juggler Canyon, Tigersnake Canyon and Empress Canyon, as well as Malatia Wall for abseiling and run tours of the iconic Six Foot Track. I’ve done Juggler and it was SO MUCH FUN! Check out this little video of a Blue Mountains Wild Adventures group in Butterbox Canyon.

Head over to the website (brand spanking new one)  or call James on 02 9389 0535 to book. They’ll pick up from Sydney or Katoomba and all gear is provided.

When you travel it’s an amazing opportunity to give back to the community you travel through. There are so many ways to do this so I wrote this piece for the Herald Sun travel section to explore a few of them. Photo by my favourite photographer and travel buddy James Marten-Coney.

Canyoning in the Blue Mountains

30 May

That’s me. Tied onto a rope, wrapped around a tree, lowering myself down a rocky overhang into some cold, cold water. It’s called canyoning and it’s SO MUCH FUN! It never used to be my natural compulsion to involve myself in adventure activities, but the more I am exposed to, the more I love. It’s amazing how many people have asked me if I was scared and, truth be told, I wasn’t one bit. Weird.

The canyon we did was Jugglers Canyon in the Blue Mountains. Tim and Chey from Blue Mountains Adventure Company took us out and they were awesome. Five abseils, muddy wet shoes, and a big walk later, we got back to Katoomba with  not much left in our tanks.

Next stop is this
