*** 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.

This is a fun one to do and introduce others to the sport of canyoning. It is an open gorge, with some creek walking in between each drop. Finding the start is easy. Just enter the creek as you cross it, heading downstream, or walk along the trail for a few minutes until a fire trail appears on the right. Your car will be parked here: -28.113244, 153.190360

Exit is a well worn track on true left of the creek, and there are multiple tracks now that can be followed. With private property and the creek funnelling you back to your car, you'll make it either way, it shouldn't be too hard to find your way back. A bit of scrambling can be involved.
