This trip is seriously good fun and suitable for family groups!

We start our expedition in Twister Canyon (Often referred to as “Sheep Dip”) where we encounter lots of slides, water jumps and interesting scrambles. When the water stops, we walk a short distance to the start of Rocky Creek Canyon- One of the most impressive slot canyons in the Blue Mountains. The formations in this canyon can not be beat- seriously breathtaking!

At the end of our canyon experience, we do a 1 hour bushwalk which takes us through beautiful rainforest sections before the final uphill push to get back to the carpark.
