What will be happening…..

In the first place, the Newcastle Abseiling Adventure requires us to have a fun drive over to the western side of the Watagans National Park in our 4×4 Troop carrier. Suddenly you will be parked on top of a massive cliff line with spectacular views out across the Hunter Valley floor. Everyone who abseils with us starts with training and the information needed to stay safe as they descend the first cliff. In due time when you feel ready, will you be guided to the edge and clipped onto your abseiling lines. Notably, will be morning tea during our training session, so no one is abseiling on an empty stomach.

Training can be fun

Warm up

Experience has taught us thats its best for everyone to spend some time getting comfortable with the equipment and the idea of stepping of a cliff before actually doing it.No one finds abseiling natural

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

20 meter

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.

Keep your eyes peeled as you return to the clifftop for another go. We often see Goannas climbing around the cliffs as well as in the trees.

Preparing for 60 meters

Mega Drop

After a enjoying a lunch 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.

Walking back to the top allows you explore some caves and study the intricate formations the wind has carved into the rock.
