Claustral canyon is an amazing piece of history. For over a million years it has remained locked in a time capsule away from outside interference. It boasts a rich environment, full of life and greenery. This canyon has been described as one of the most beautiful places in Australia.
You will be amazed at what this canyon has to offer. 4 Abseils will take you into the depths of the canyon. These abseils are relatively easy and involve abseiling through the ‘Black Holes of Calcutta’. There is also a lot of boulder hoping and maneuvering your way through the rugged terrain. Short swims are common throughout the tour with the longest being 50m.
This canyon is very long and difficult, the exit track alone taking on average 4 hours. People who are fit, keen and are looking for a big adventure will find this to be one of the most rewarding canyoning tours available.
