WHAT TO EXPECT

Enjoy a half-day of canyoning in Cairns! Choose between two locations — Behana Canyon (perfect for kids and first-time canyoneers) or Crystal Canyon (perfect for adventure seekers and the big kid in all of us)! On this adventure tour, you'll canyon your way down the gorge by abseiling, cliff jumping, sliding, swimming, floating, and exploring.

 

Behana Canyon:

 

Surrounded by lush green rainforest, granite formations, and stunning views of the gorge, Behana is a wide-open space with its main feature being a series of waterfalls coming together into a bowl. From the main waterfall, you'll canyon your way down a variety of water features (abseiling, cliff jumping, sliding, swimming, and exploring) with your qualified guide.

 

The best thing about Behana Canyon experience is that everything on this course is optional and you can make the choice of what you'd like to do without it affecting the other people in the group (meaning you can bail if you're not into it and it won't affect the rest of the tour). This makes it ideal for families or those a little nervous or first-time canyoners whilst still catering to those more intermediate/advanced levels in a fun, safe way.

 

This tour has exclusive vehicle use of the 3.2km track to Behana Gorge situated in Wooroonooran World Heritage National Park (40-minute drive from Cairns). Upon arrival, your guides will instruct each of you on abseiling techniques and the correct use of gear. Taking up a canyoning experience in the warm tropics offers a refreshing way to cool down, enjoy nature that will make your friends and family wish they’d have done it with you!

Ages 8 years or older – due to every activity on course being optional
Abseils – up to 2
Rock Jumps – up to 3 (largest being 12m)

Crystal Canyon:

 

One of the most popular Waterfalls in the Cairns region is the beautiful Crystal Cascades, surrounded by tropical rainforest, with a 2km track passing through many water pools. Cairns Canyoning offers a whole other level of experience to explore these waterfalls through our water courses. Enjoy a 30-metre zip line into the refreshing pool, an abseil down and through one of the waterfalls itself, jumps, slides, abseils, a chance to appreciate nature in a different style of adventure!
