If you are inspired and looking to start canyoning I recommend doing a trip with a commercial guide company or joining a bush walking club.
Those that know me and have asked to come along, um I tend to plan these trips at the last minute and am terrible at remembering to invite people. I head out most weekends so if you get in contact the Wednesday or Thursday I let you know what I’m doing and whether it would be suitable.
Those more experienced and adventurous may pick up clues or get a bit of an idea of what to expect from my videos and photos but I don’t generally give directions or instruction. For that sort of thing I highly recommend Tom Brennan’s site at Ozultimates
The lotsafreshair youtube channel also posted this handy little video about canyon safety and ethics which is well worth the watch
And please remember to Think before you TREK
Think before you TREK promotes the benefits of planning ahead for your bushwalking trip by using an easy to remember acronym:
T – Take adequate supplies of food, water, navigation and first aid equipment.
R – Register your planned route and tell friends and family when you expect to return.
E – Emergency beacon (PLB’s) are available free of charge from NSW Police Force and NPWS.
K – Keep to your planned route and follow the map and walking trails
For further information about the TREK program please head to the following web sitehttps://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/…/think-before-you…Please also download and install the Emergency plus App on your smart phone.https://emergencyapp.triplezero.gov.auLet’s have a safe and enjoyable weekend.
