*** 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.

Unlike the name suggests, this is not a canyon but rather an open gorge with 3 abseils. I would not recommend this trip unless you enjoy lots of uphill and downhill along the QLD/NSW border track.

If you are still hell bent on checking this place out, park at the border crossing along Lions Road. Head uphill along the border and follow that for 4-5 hours. You will be close to death at this point, so summon just a little more energy to do the 3 abseils, then look forward to the entire trip back along the border from where you came.

TIP 01: Take mountain bikes.
TIP 02: Don't do the trip.
