Get keen for an adrenalin-filled,stunningly gorgeous weekend exploring the Blue Mountains' best canyons!

Subject to work and uni commitments, the vague plan is to head off from the gearshed around 5pm, arriving at the campsite about 8:30, but carpooling and travel arrangements can be sorted closer to the time.

We will be camping at Cathedral Reserve near Mount Wilson Friday and Saturday night before heading back to Newcastle on Sunday evening.

Weather dependent, Saturday will be a day of rockhopping and abseiling down some of the best and most beautiful canyons the Blue Mountains has to offer, including Grand, Serendipity, and Waterdragon. It will be a big day including swimming, several kilometers of hiking, and some steep terrain, so a reasonable level of fitness and confident swimming ability are both essential!

Sunday will be similar, where we roll out of our tents to go canyoning again before heading back to Newy.

All camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats etc.) can be hired from the gearstore, in addition to wetsuits, backpacks and drybags. The club will also provide helmets, harnesses and everything you need to stay safe in a canyon!

We will be stopping for dinner on the road Friday night on the way to the Bluies, and a delicious, hearty club meal will be provided Saturday night. You will be responsible for providing your own breakfast, lunch, and snacks for Saturday and Sunday (ideally things which are individually wrapped and/or you won't mind eating after they've gone soggy courtesy of a swim in a canyon!)

Please keep in mind you will need to make it to the shed on the Tuesday or Wednesday night prior to this trip to organise a wetsuit, and get on those tickets fast! It's first in best dressed and they will go quick!

Get keen for an incredible weekend! If you have any questions feel free to direct them here :)
