The tour was fantastic. The scenery is stunning and the cliff jumps, slides and scrambles were a blast. The guides were friendly, encouraging and professional, plus they were good for a laugh and bit of chocolate when we needed it. :p It was a great day of adventure and fun. I'll will be back to try another tour next season.... More

Our Cradle Mountain Canyons adventure was a highlight of our trip to Tassie. The guides were fun and very knowledgable about the area, they taught us the techniques in a clear way, and they prepared this wonderful lunch with hot chocolate too. We enjoyed every minute of it, and we have the photos to show our friends since they gave... More

We were all disappointed at first but we were all highly impressed at the end of the tour! Our guides Benny & Leon were great! We... More

The guys were fantastic at accommodating us as we had someone in our group who couldn't swim. They were more than happy to change our day to machinery creek as no one else had booked. We had a small group of three which was very lucky for us. Our guides, Anthony and Leon were friendly and very experienced. They explained... More

We were 2 guys and 1 girl of 23 years old. We had lots of fun during the canyoning. The weather wasn't the best but it didn't matter. However it was expensive 190 dollars for concession price. If you have the money you will have a great day, we laugh a lot and the team was really nice. We don't... More

Thanks Arnaud G for the review. Glad to hear you had fun. I'll take that feedback about the price on board, but we think it is great value and most of our customers agree. We have a maximum group size of 12 and two guides accompany every trip. The amount we charge is the minimum we can get away with... More

What a phenomenal natural playground us Tasmanian's have access to, in our very own backyard. The operations of the Dove canyon tour ran so smoothly from start to finish. The tour guides are complete professionals; every word ensured trust and safety. However; they are the most laid back professionals I've had the pleasure of meeting. Canyoning needs to be experienced... More

The Machinery Creek involves 6 abseiling, about 2 jumps and 1 small sliding. My friend and I had great fun although I almost dropped dead at the end of the tour. My friend said she... More
