What Will I Be Doing?

Firstly, we were hoping you enjoy the ride through the National park in our Air Conditioned 4 X 4 Troop Carrier, a great way to start your adventure day. On arrival at the cliffs, you will start your training in preparation for your first abseil. When you are comfortable and feeling ready, we will start abseiling the three drops highlighted below. Finally, you will be enjoying both morning tea and lunch while looking out over the spectacular views. 

Training on 20 meters

20m Warm Up

After some training on sloping ground you will be ready for our first cliff of the day. Its a shear wall of approx 20 meters. Just enough to get your heart racing but not enough to terrify you, that will come later in the day.

With a comfortable launch area, our first cliff will allow you to build confidence and develop the skills required to tackle the Mega Drop. 

Long Way Down

Mega Drop

After a enjoying a short morning tea break it’s time to tackle the Mega drop, 60 meters of adrenaline-pumping action. The memories of achieving a challenge like the mega wall are both life-changing and lifelong.

The opportunity to explore some caves and study the intricate formations wind has carved into the rock will present itself.

Into the dark Cave

The Dark Cave

A quirk of nature has created a miniature canyon in the landscape that’s just crying out for abseilers to investigate. In the event, you decide to join us, you will experience something that is indeed spectacular, unique and rare.

That is to say, we don’t often get to abseil down & then climb an almost vertical slot out of between rock that is not cliff based.

Abseiling is suitable for a wide range of people of varying levels of fitness and ability. We ask everyone to complete a short training session before taking that first step over a cliff edge.

Valuable Information

You will receive comprehensive training, so no previous experience is necessary.  

Being moderately fit is all that is required. Walking along the track back to the top of the cliff can be demanding for some people.

We have had children as young as ten and adults as old as seventy-two complete all three cliffs. 

 Lake Macquarie Abseiling Adventure departs from the Freemans Waterholes Cafe at 8 am and returns at approx 5.00 pm. 

Furthermore, our vehicle may be able to pick people up directly from their accommodation or home, but this is before the 8.00 am start and at a small extra cost. Contact us to arrange.
