This is a one day canyoning adventure with a plan to visit River Caves Canyon in the Morning and if time premits, we do Wolgan View Canyon in the afternoon, the first which involves a walk through a creek where you will get wet to your waist. In the afternoon we will go through the easy Wolgan View Canyon (Dry Canyon).
All canyons are suitable for scouts. As we will be doing 2 canyons this will be a reasonably long day so please ensure you are fit enough for the adventure.
River Caves canyon involves a wad through cold water, so participants must bring a well fitting wetsuit (2nd hand ones are easily obtained from CashConverters, however keep your eyes out for a sale at ALDI).
