Dione Dell

Tim, Scott, Louise, John, Autal, Craig B, Peter and I

Canyoning out near Kanangra Walls generally means epic full or multi-day adventures in big terrain.

Dion Dell is a little more sedate trip than most out this way. That said the waterfalls are very pretty and the terrain is just as aweinpiring.

I always though the 60m absiel down the slot of Wallarra falls was a sure way to get wet. Tim proves otherwise

The first half is the easy bit.  Now to stay dry it’s across  the slot and down the side

The bottom of Wallarra falls. I’d set up the usual shorter drop (red rope) while others choose to have a got at the direct route (Blue rope)

On a clear day with a set of binoculars you can see Sydneys Center point tower. But it’s not all about the view

To those devoid of imagination a blank place on the map is a useless waste; to others, it’s the most valuable part: Aldo Leopold
