Sunnyside (Acoustic) Canyon
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.
Day 2 of the annual Sydney North Region Canyoning Course and yet another canyon I hadn’t done before, with an end of day speed run through Twister.
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.

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.
We originally planned this for the weekend prior but decided to postpone due to a forecast for rain. What a mistake - the Saturday ended up being OK and it rained pretty much continuously for the next week.
