It has been designed to equip kids with the skills and technique they need to attempt their first ever abseil. The site is accessed via a short 300m bush walk, which opens up to a picturesque rocky outcrop downstream of the Britannia Creek Weir surrounded by a bubbling creek.
Your experienced guides will kit you out with a harness and helmet, run you through a safety briefing, and demonstrate correct abseiling techniques. Once you’ve got a handle on the basics’ we will commence the activity. Your guides will continue to offer plenty of useful tips and pointers to help build your confidence throughout the activity.
