Firstly, after introductions, we have approximately forty-five minutes driving across the Watagans National in our 4 X 4 Troop carrier. Initially, on the Hunter Valley Abseiling Adventure, your priority activity will be training for that first step over the edge. When you are proficient at the exercises learned during training, you will start your first abseil. Additionally, as the morning progresses, you will be enjoying a yummy morning tea while looking out over the spectacular views.

Training

Safety for everyone participating in the Hunter Valley Abseiling Adventure is paramount at all times. From experience gained after teaching a large number of people, we always start on the sloping ground rather than a cliff this ensures you will have a good understanding of abseil equipment and procedures before stepping over the edge.

Your First Time

Remember we want you to have a good experience, not a terrifying one. So with training completed, its time to tackle the cliff and step backwards over the edge -twenty meters of a sheer vertical rock wall located deep in the spectacular Watagans National Park. Abseiling is an experience like no other-its guaranteed to get your heart racing and adrenaline pumping.

Relax with time

Multiple Goes

There is more than enough time for you to have multiple abseils. You will improve your skills every time you go down. As your nerves and fear subside, you will be able to practice jumping and then drop your way to the bottom rather than walking down. Eventually, we would like to see you up on the Mega drop on your next outing with Walking Rivers.
