After a morning spent practicing your abseiling techniques, you’ll stop for lunch before a 20-minute bushwalk to the start of Empress Canyon. Here you’ll don your wetsuit and helmet before swimming, jumping and sliding your way through the stunning mossy, fern-lined narrow canyon, finishing with another 30 metre abseil down Empress Falls. This tour is available from September to April.
