New commercial canyon trip in Tassie -- Phoenix Gorge

Post by T2 » 30 Oct 2019, 11:45

Cradle Mountain Canyons have announced that this season they're adding a new canyon to their commercial operations, Phoenix Gorge.

It looks like a pretty sporty canyon, with the main feature being a 30m waterfall which can be turned into a slide for the lower 15m (see video below).

Otherwise it's a mix of abseils, jumps, slides and what the company calls a zipline (although I think it's probably just a guided abseil).

Has anyone got track notes or access details? Looks like a worthwhile canyon to explore next time I'm in Tassie.

Cool slide!
Doesn't look very canyoniferous though.
Might be going to Tassie in Jan, if so I'll try and get away from the wife and kids for a trip.

I'm almost certain I've tracked down the location of this one. It's on my (ever growing) list of Tassie canyons / exploratory creek descents, so I will try to get through it at some point. In the meantime, PM me if you're interested in checking it out and I'll privately point you in the (hopefully) right direction.
