Mount Buffalo Beginners Abseiling
We have ceased all group abseiling adventures until the Covid 19 crisis is over and governments advise us that it is safe to run this type of adventure again - Can be purchased as a gift certificate to use at a later date
Abseiling is a safe and enjoyable adventure that is suitable for a wide range of ages and fitness levels. With the beginners abseil experience, we first learn how easy abseiling is on one of our 10 metre abseil sites and once we are confident we move on to a 25 metre abseil cliff for some more abseils. Finally we challenge ourselves on a 35 Metre beginners abseil site to complete the activity. All these abseil sites have a great view of the gorge and are suitable for photography.
The location is close to the Mt Buffalo Gorge visitors car park and toilets plus other facilities (The visitors Car park is near the historical Mt Buffalo Chalet and adjacent to the main gorge lookouts and public toilets).
This adventure is suitable for a wide range of ages and fitness levels. Just bring your sense of Adventure!
