About The Adventure
Join Women Embrace Adventure for a fully catered day of fun and adventure! This amazing day is a women only event in the rainforest of Gap Creek. We start the day abseiling through the most beautiful natural arch deep inside the Watagans national park. It is a spectacular and serene part of the world and sharing this experience with a bunch of amazing women makes it even more special. After abseiling we hike a little and do some creek walking to search for yabbies and crayfish and even have a drink from the fresh water creek or waterfall. Then the canyoning part begins with an abseil into a beautiful clear water lagoon. We follow the creek walking, swimming and jumping in water holes, squeezing our way through a few tight spots and swim our way out across a beautiful lagoon to our sandy lunch spot on the edge of the water.
Some testimonials from our last abseiling / canyoning crew:
"Awesome adventure!! thank you all for your company, many smiles, guidance and expertise!! sleep well ladies!!"
"Thank you so much everyone for the laughs, comradery and the challenges. It was a fantastic day"

"Thank you so very much Katrina, Sharon, Peter and the rest of the beautiful woman I meet today. It was such a beautiful and amazing experience, love love loved it and you all. Can’t wait to catch up again"

How fit do I need to be?
As this is an all day event that includes walking, abseiling and canyoning we recommend a moderate to moderately high level of fitness for this adventure. However it is not an adventure that needs a super high level of fitness as we will be taking breaks throughout the day to catch our breath and take in the beautiful setting. As with any physical activity, always discuss anything new with your GP.
What if I don’t have anyone to go with?
No problem at all, there is always a Women Embrace Adventure host to make sure everyone meets before we set off. By the end of the day we're sure you will have found some new friends.
Do I need experience?
Definitely not! Our guide will give a comprehensive briefing before the tour on equipment use, safety and what to expect while on the adventure. We also offer tips to improve your technique to make things easier and more enjoyable for you.
How many Women will be on my adventure?
We like to keep things quite small and intimate at Women Embrace Adventure to offer you a supportive and friendly environment. Generally, there will be no more than 12 women on our adventures.
Will bad weather conditions affect my adventure?
It could. Wet weather will generally not cause the cancellation of an abseiling adventure. If the weather is inclement enough to be a potential safety risk, we will contact you in the days before the adventure to discuss your options. *See t&c below
What if I am petrified of heights and freak out?
It happens and we are here to provide a supportive environment for you to just give it a go. Our outdoor guide and WEA hosts are very adept at calming nerves and helping you to see exactly what you are capable of accomplishing. No judgement!
