Carrabeanga is one of the hardest, if not the hardest, of the canyons flowing into Kanangra Creek. It is a remote wilderness trip requiring advanced navigational and ropework skills. All of the party should have previous experience in Kanangra canyons. Travel light and fast.
Carrabeanga is not recommended as a winter trip, despite what you may see elsewhere.
It is sensible to drop water on the way in for the return trip.
Park at the King Pin Firetrail on the Kanangra Walls road. Follow the King Pin Firetrail to Mount Thurat. Follow the ridge along Thurat Tops (difficult routefinding) to the intersection of Thurat Ridge and Burra Gunama Ridge at 32454 40633. Drop water here for the return trip. Follow Burra Gunama Ridge to Burra Gunama Hill. Walk down to Carrabeanga Brook, aiming to strike the river at 34840 41423. Walk downstream to the first anchor at 34918 41382. Allow 2h30m for the walk in.
Follow the attached abseil summary list, and topo of the Carrabeanga Falls. Pay particular attention to the comments for abseils 5, 6 and 7.
After an overnight camp on Kanangra Creek, exit via the ridge to the south of Cyclops Gully.
