Go canyoning in a secluded section of the Cairns rainforest on an active 7-hour small-group tour. Your guide leads you through Crystal Canyon in the Crystal Cascades, where you have the opportunity to abseil, zipline, scramble over boulders, and jump into freshwater pools. Travel with a small group that is limited to 12 people for a more personalized experience.
  • Small-group 7-hour canyoning tour from Cairns or the Northern Beaches
  • Abseil down eight thrilling descents in Crystal Canyon
  • Experience the pristine rain forest of Cairns up close
  • Includes lunch, all necessary equipment, and hotel pickup and drop-off
Start your day with early morning pickup from your accommodation in Cairns or the Northern Beaches.
Head to the viewing platform at Devil’s Drop in the Crystal Cascades, then walk a short distance to the higher reaches of the tropical watercourse. Your guide provides a detailed safety talk and the necessary gear, including helmet, canyoning harness, shoes, long-sleeve thermal top, neoprene shorts, and a low-profile padded life jacket that provides extra protection from the rocks.
Your first abseil of the day takes on a 37-foot (11-meter) descent down a huge granite rock next to a waterfall. At the bottom, cool off on the slippery slide, then continue to the biggest drop of the day: a 99-foot (30-meter) abseil down the Big Cheese.
The watercourse contains a total of eight rappels, three jumps, two slides, and one zipline, with a hand line along the way for safety. Keep your eyes open for wildlife including monitor lizards, birds, and colorful butterflies and dragonflies.
Upon completion of the course, stop for a light lunch before returning to your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation.

My wife and I just spent our 6th anniversary with Rob, Spencer and Masio on a canyoning adventure. What a group of sarcastic, fun loving and whimsical guides. Needless to say, this was about one of the best tours we have ever been on. Not only did we have get a great experience rappelling, jumping, sliding and swinging our way down a rainforest river, we got to do it with a group of guides that left no doubt in my mind they loved their jobs. Let me not gloss over the fact that when it came to safety the crew was very professional and I felt comfortable with the equipment and safety the entire time.
We had a great time and this was an anniversary trip we are not likely to forget anytime soon.

This was one of my daughters' favorite things that we did. A little challenging with the rappelling, especially for me, but Fuji and Baaz were helpful and patient and made it fun! We had a great time!

A must do in Cairns! Great guides and very personable. We truly enjoyed the trek, jump, swim, zip line and much more. This tour inspired my family to do more of these types of activities in the future.
