A great experience that was led by two very professional guides. The ravines were incredible, and to think that only a handful of people actually know they are there, it is a trip that more people should do. A great day had!

This experience was not for the faint-hearted (especially on the day that my partner and I did it). It rained quite a lot the night before, so the waterfalls were full and the water was deep. It was definitely a day of adrenaline - but the guides (Al and Ryan I believe - so sorry if I got it wrong!)... More

We had an awesome day in the canyon today. Such a fantastic and different way to experience the ancient wonders of the post Gondwanaland environment. The weather was inclement and the water levels were up, however the guides, Bec and Al were fantastic in keeping the group informed about the safety, pros and cons of the dove canyon in the... More

Such a great experience! Myself and my friend were lucky enough to get a private tour due to a miscommunication with our booking- so grateful to our excellent guides Ryan and Anthony who took us out on an impromptu Lost World tour. Anyone looking for a bit of adventure on Cradle Mountain should definitely go canyoning with Anthony and his... More

We did the Lost Canyon tour. We met our guides, Anthony and Kenna at the hut on a cold and windy afternoon. We did this tour as a family thing and it suited all of our differing abilities. The guides were professional, happy, engaging, encouraging. The gear provided kept us very warm inside the extremely cold water. Couldn't recommend this... More

Much more than expected, certainly got my adrenaline jumping. Very professional, friendly and funny guides. Be ready for a big hike carrying plenty of gear.

Met at the hut, while it was snowing! Bec and Leon informed us that the original canyon (the Dove) was not possible due to excessive water, (and the temperature I assume). But we would head to Machinery Canyon where the weather would be much better, and it was. Some blue sky, some drizzle, but with all the gear on I... More

Even on a cold, rainy, windy, and by all accounts: miserable day, this activity is still a must. I was incredibly reluctant to do this, especially due to the weather on the day, but I'm so happy that I did. The excitement and adrenaline felt during every jump builds off of the previous jumps, with the act of jumping off... More

Well organised, professional and tons of fun! (Just make sure you rock up with proper shoes as the beautiful hike to the gorge does not cater for havaianas!)

Have to try this once in a lifetime experience. Felt very safe and was not as cold as I thought. I am not a fan of heights but this is doable. Beautiful scenery along the way and the staff were also awesome .
