Empress Falls Canyon Tour (Blue Mountains Canyoning) combines abseiling and canyoning to give you one of the Blue Mountains best canyoning experiences available. Empress is a fantastic canyon which can be as action packed as you wish, or there are options to make it a little more gentle. We’ll begin the day with some abseiling instruction – its fun and exciting. Then after a great outdoor lunch we’ll travel to the canyon entrance and begin the tour. The journey takes us deep inside the sandstone cliff and will find us wading, scrambling and jumping until we discover daylight again. From here we’ll need our abseiling skills for a spectacular 30 metre waterfall abseil to finish this awesome canyon adventure!

Empress Falls Canyon Tour Itinerary

We spend the first half of the day abseiling to hone your skills and prepare you for the abseils you'll do on the Empress Falls Canyon Tour. You'll start with a 5 metre high cliff and building up to 30 metre high cliffs during the morning.

After lunch, it's a scenic 20 minute walk to the start of the Empress Canyon Tour. You wade into the creek that descends into the narrow slot-like canyon and within a few seconds you are jumping into a rock pool, the first of several jumps and swims. This canyon is an exciting affair with water jumps, exhilarating swims, waterslides and fantastic scenery.

The final abseil out of the canyon is one of the best waterfall abseils in the mountains. Clip into the rope, step back and follow the 30 metre waterfall down to the deep rock pool below. This is not just a brilliant waterfall abseil but also a fantastic photo opportunity.
