*** WARNING *** Canyons can be dangerous places. Always ensure you have the required skills and experience before setting out. Never go alone and always let someone know where you are going. Using these notes is done at your own risk. You are responsible for checking for and obeying any closures relevant to this canyon.

Similar to Watsons Creek Canyon, Kinnanes Falls is open and exposed. The abseils are high, with two 50m drops. The walk in and out are relatively short so for a bigger day, combine this and Watsons Creek Canyon together as they are not too far apart with a drive. This canyon can dry up in dryer months, so the best time to go is in the new year after some rain. As usual, if the water level looks high, don’t do it. Be aware that some of the pull-downs can be tricky if you don’t plan properly.
