Canyoning is a traverse through a river canyon, basic canyoning can be “walk-in, walk-out “ with more advanced canyons involving swimming, abseiling or climbing.

Who Can Do It?

Venturers , Rovers and Leaders

The Canyoning Team head off several times a year on a weekend away in the Blue Mountains and teaches people the skills and knowledge required for safe canyoning. And for those that are already Canvoners, the Canyoning Team also set aside a weekend for a more advanced Canyoning trip. All you have to do is come along!

When Can I do This?
