Description:
Dry-ish short abseiling canyon. Tiger snake. Beginners are welcome


I will be leading a small group through Tiger snake canyon, which is a dryish abseiling short canyon in the Newnes State Forest.

PLEASE NOTE YOU WILL NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN ABSEILING EQUIPMENT WHICH CONSISTS OF HARNESS HELMENT DESCENDER.

You must be fit to climb up a steep rocky beautiful mountain, from a very leafy dense bush, sub-tropical like. If you have some abseiling experience before it is preferable but we will train you on the day.

We will be meeting at 8am at Bell railway station.

From Bell, it is about 1 hour of bumpy dirt road driving. People with cars will be given preference So, anyone can catch a train to Bell station and get a lift from there.


You will get a bit wet due to: abseiling down a cliff, next to small waterfalls, and walking in cold water above ankle for a short time. We will be going down a series of abseils of varying heights, and the last abseil is deep and very dark. So, it is better that each of us should have a head-torch to enjoy that amazing very dark environment.


If catching the train, please make sure to stay in the last 2 carriage, and also you must remind to the train driver or train guard to stop at Bell.

The essential items to bring are: a harness, helmet, descender, gloves for the abseiling, backpack, food, water, head torch, decent hiking shoes.

Cold weather clothing and waterproof jacket & pants in case of unexpected showers. Also please carry at least one extra pair of clothing to be in your strong day back pack.


A car pool will be organised, and people can contribute money to the owner/driver.

Your name n telephone will be listed for the purpose of organising car pool. Any objection please let me know. People with cars who are willing to take others will be given preference to join the trip.
