Trip reports for all canyons that are accessed via Newnes Plateau.
This is a great canyon to do if all you want is easy day out in a beautiful part of the world or you've been climbing at the Awesome Sahara Point and want to chill at the end of your day of climbing.
Of course it takes just as long to drive there as it does to do the canyon, so maybe do Pleasant View or Zorro as well. Or just go climbing at what IMHO is probably the best cliffline in the Wolgan - Sahara Point.
Day 2 of the annual Sydney North Region Canyoning Course and yet another canyon I hadn't done before. Awesome!
The track to Deathtrap Canyon used to be an old logging road but it was now well and truly overgrown so the walk in was not straight forward.
Day 1 of of the annual Sydney North Region Canyoning Course. My group had been allocated Closet Canyon, which was great as I'd never done it before and being slightly remote it promised a good bit of off track walking and navigation.
We set off just after 9:30am and followed the well defined track to Rocky Creek, which then petered out to a faint and difficult to follow track along the ridge line. We completely lost the "track" where the ridgeline did a bit of a dogleg and resorted to some good old fashioned bush bashing for a hundred metres or so until we got to the next section of ridgeline which was a bit more open but still required bush bashing.
An epic canyoning weekend to a few remote and rarely visited canyons in the Bungleboori wilderness.
The very original plan I had in mind was to do the Three Peaks but that was scrapped once Greg and I realised how hot it was going to be - plus Greg had come down with a bad case of ManFlu so we decided to do Wheengee Whungee in the Kanangra region instead.
Yet another annual Twister and Rocky Creek Canyon expedition with a cast of thousands!
Yep Thousands! By the time we arrived the car park was chockers - I have never seen so many cars here. We had 15 in our group and then with everyone else there would have been about 50 people all up.
Day 2 of the bi-annual Sydney North Region Canyoning Course and one of my favourite canyons. It's a dry canyon, which means you only get your feet wet - it's a shame that it's not longer. If you want to make a day of it, then you can follow up with Penrose Gully.
This was day 1 of the bi-annual Sydney North Region Canyoning Course - coordinated by Chris Stanley.
On previous courses we've started from the Bell Heavy Vehicle Checking Station and then spread out all over the Bluies to do various Canyons - unfortunately due to the recent October bushfires, our choice was somewhat limited so Chris made a
Yet another Twister and Rocky Creek Canyon trip. The second this summer!!!
I can't remember how many times I've done this canyon, but I'm always finding something new. This time, it was Tyler who found a new HIGH spot to jump into the big pool. Check out the video for the awesome jumps.
This is the inaugural Tambo Canyoning Trip. The twelve of us set off from the Rocky Creek Car park at 10:30am and after a leisurely stroll arrived at the start of Twister Canyon around 11:00am when Adrian discovered that he'd had a bit of a Senior moment as he'd left his camera in car - Doh!. Good news though - Kim was in training for his marathon, so he offered to run back up the hill to
This trip started as the result of strange coincidences. When we did Twister and Rocky Creek the weekend before, Ian mentioned that a leader from Sailor's Bay was going to do Wollangambe on the Sunday - which was cancelled due to water levels.
As it turns out, the coincidental part was that the other Adrian sent
