Spillway Canyoning – Advanced

Quick Details

Person Ages 12+

The Ultimate Rainforest Experience

Only available to the public through Cairns Canyoning is the rewarding full day canyoning section, otherwise known as Spillway Canyon. You’ll need to be adventurous, have swimming experience & a determination to overcome your fears…

In the morning you’ll see the beautiful Cairns City views on the way up to Lake Morris (Copperlode Dam), once at Lake Morris you’ll change to stunning views of the lake & surrounding World Heritage Wet Tropics rainforest… from here we will get ready for Canyoneering, show you the ropes, walk through the days plan before decending / abseiling over a 52 meter drop.

You’ll see parts of FNQ that very few will ever get to see, let alone experience… We have bigger drops, slides, water chute, waterfalls, abseils and more, on this full day Spillway Canyoning. The full day canyoning course finishes 4.2km downstream at Crystal Cascades (one of Cairns Most Popular Waterfalls)

Our canyoning course has been designed to have no environmental impact, it’s an unforgetable experience & we’d love to show this to you!
