What to Expect

Come and experience the outdoor nature playground of Cairns with this exciting half-day canyoning adventure. Located in the lush green World Heritage Wet Tropics Rainforest, you’ll be treated to abseils, rock jumps, rock slides and more at your choice of either of the stunning Behana Canyon or Crystal Canyon locations. Our enthusiastic and passionate tour guides will be with you every step of the way to ensure you have the best experience possible in the safest way possible.


Behana Canyon 

Behana Gorge, situated in Wooroonooran World Heritage National Park, is surrounded by lush green rainforest & unique granite formations. Enjoy exclusive vehicle use of the 3.2km track to the wide open space of the canyon, with its main feature being a series of waterfalls coming together into a bowl. From the main waterfall you can expect to see a variety of water features that your qualified tour guide will take you through on your canyoning adventure.


The best thing about the Behana Canyon is that everything on this course is optional & each of our guests can make the choices of what they would like to do without it affecting the other people in their groups – this makes it ideal for first time canyoners or families whilst still catering to those at an intermediate/advanced level. The adventurous course involves up to two abseils, up to three rock jumps (the largest being 12 metres), up to two rockslides (weather dependant), one waterchute and up to two plunge pools or similar (weather dependant) for the most fun you can have in half a day. Behana Canyon has a minimum age of 8 years.


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. This canyoning experience offers a whole new level of adventure while exploring these waterfalls through our water course. 


Enjoy a 30 metre zipline into the refreshing rock pool, up to five abseils, including through one of the waterfalls itself, up to two rock jumps plus the chance to appreciate nature in an entirely different way. Crystal Canyon has aminimum age of 12 years as the majority of this course is not optional.


Please allow up to five and a half hours for the entire half-day canyoning experience from start to finish; every day is a little different depending on the weather, road conditions and how much fun we are having!
