What's included?


Our team are not simply qualified guides. They are outdoor instructors.

The Australian School Of Mountaineering has trained many guides currently working in the Outdoor Industry.

On an ASM Adventure or Course, you are not simply under the supervision of fully qualified guides- you are being lead & taught by the Industry Leaders in Outdoor Adventure.


Technical gear

All technical equipment is provided for all ASM Courses & Adventures.

Have your own harness or rock shoes? Feel free to bring them along. If not, we have a well stocked supply of all the gear you will need to experience a great Adventure. And there's no extra cost- it's all included within your course fees.


In-Store Discounts

The Australian School of Mountaineering maintains a partnership with Paddy Pallin Katoomba. On the day of your Adventure and for the duration of your course you are entitled to 15% off everything not already on sale.

Not sure what technical gear to buy? Your instructors can provide their professional opinion and you can then purchase the gear with your ASM discount.



All Full Day Adventures and courses include a delicious (& generously portioned) catered lunch.

Worried about your food allergy? We can work to all dietary requirements- Coeliac, Vegetarian, Lactose Intolerant, Vegan etc. Simply let us know at the time of your booking.



We recommend leaving your valuables behind- Trying to find a wedding ring in the bottom of a canyon pool is rarely going to end well.

We have locker storage available if required.



We provide Activity transport for all of our Full Day courses and Adventures. We recommend parking your car in the All Day Parking near Katoomba Police Station.

On rare occasions participants may be required to drive, but we'll always give you as much notice as possible.


National Parks Fees

There is no extra cost for your time spent in National Parks. All usage fees are included within your course fees.


Wilderness & Views

The Blue Mountains is an Ancient & beautiful area. It is also our office.

Expect to see some things which are simply amazing- Fantastic views and rugged Wilderness.

The stuff that memories are truly made from.


A real experience

All of these things (and so much more!) all work together towards you having the best Blue Mountains Adventure experience possible.

We work tirelessly to ensure your experience will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime!
