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:
