Trip Reports of Canyons in the Katoomba Area
A good canyon for a cold and drizzly day.
We'd originally intended to do Butterbox Canyon but when we arrived there were two commercial groups and a private party ahead of us and we really didn't feel like waiting at the small abseils, so we decided to bail and head off for Juggler.
What a great little canyon! I can't believe that I haven't done this before. It's just perfect for beginners.
With a short walk in and out, some jumps, a nice swim through a constricted canyon and an absolutely stunning view of the Grose Valley at the end this canyon is must do.
A not so secret, secret canyon?
This seemed like a great canyon to do. It was listed in the "other canyons to do" section of the canyoning guide as a superb canyon and there was stuff all info on the web. Sounded perfect.
As the canyon required a car shuffle we met at 9:00am at the exit so that we could do a car swap and not soon after a convoy of cars turned up to do the same thing! So we got moving so that we could be in the canyon first. As we arrived at the start there were a daunting array of "private property" and "keep out" signs, but we figured that the firetrail was public access as we could see a National Parks sign. Of course not far down the track we had to traverse private property that had "Warning - Electric Fence" signs everywhere, so we quietly snuck through to the start of the Canyon. So perhaps a better entry point would be via Tableland Rd.
