Alternatively, head out to the Empress Canyon that’s loved for its low grade of difficulty. The canyon is located within Jamison Valley and is a short distance from Katoomba. With sculpted rocks, natural pools and a waterfall, there is no better way to end this adventure than by taking a dip in the cool waters.
Serendipity Canyon lives up to its name and is a favourite for those who are well-versed with techniques required for canyoning. Look out for the diverse flora that dots the gorges alongside majestic rock formations that have stood for years.
Take the adventure on to Tigersnake Canyon. This canyon stands out for two reasons: it is a dry canyon that is ideal for visiting during winter, and it is home to many wallabies and kangaroos. The canyon is located in Wollemi National Park and is a lovely spot for abseiling thanks to its stunning cliffs.
One of the best places for canyoning is the Hole-in-the-wall Canyon. This hidden gem is tucked away in the Blue Mountains, and its exploration involves abseiling, swimming, long water jumps all topped up with the sheer exhilaration of the wild. The bonus is an underground tunnel that’s lit by glow worms, undoubtedly a perfect reward for a job well done.
The Claustral Canyon is also worth checking out for people with advanced crayoning skills. It is a challenging yet incredibly rewarding experience. It is also found in the Blue Mountains, and its changing scenery makes it one of the most beautiful places to explore.
