  • Soak up the beauty of a pristine rain forest, visited by very few people and containing 1000 year old trees
  • Launch yourself off waterfalls into deep pools

Description

An action packed day in an amazing place. After abseiling into the canyon, you'll soon come to Freestyle Falls and jump the seven meters into the deep pool below. You'll continue through the canyon, encountering five more waterfalls. A highlight is the Laundry Shoot – a massive natural water-slide in the heart of the canyon. Finding yourself in a large cave-like area, you bob towards the light at the end of the tunnel that seems to be sucking you toward it with more force the closer you get. Guides won’t spoil the surprise of what happens next...but it’s damn cool. After sliding off the last waterfall, you'll climb up out of the canyon, back to where our dry clothes are. You'll get changed here and walk back to the bus. The climb up out of the canyon is definitely the hardest part of the day physically. It takes about 20 minutes and is all up hill. This amazing part of Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area can be seen by no way other than canyoning. There’s plenty of time to soak in the grandeur of the place in between the heart-pumping waterfalls. Dove Canyon is our most action packed adventure, but participants do not need previous experience – just a sense of adventure and ability to swim.
