Full-Day Canyoning Experience at Stunning Empress Canyon

32 reviews
The Blue Mountains is a beautiful area to explore but if you want to get up close and embark upon a real adventure, book this guided abseiling and canyon tour. The first half of the day is spent abseiling, beginning with small cliffs and building up to those more challenging ones. After an included lunch walk to the start of the canyon, wade into a creek, and jump into a rock pool. After some exhilarating water jumps and swims, abseil out of the canyon and into the rock pool below.

We drove all the way up/out there from Katoomba only to find the road into it was closed. Continued further on into Anvil Rock lookout, which itself was quite speccy.

This would be my favoutite of the 3 lookouts along this short stretch of road. The "Pulpit" is a nice foreground to a commanding view over the valley. Easy parking and access, well signposted

This is a little off the beaten path - and has a lot fewer visitors than other lookouts. However it was my favorite as it was one of the most spectacular due to the feeling of being so exposed. Im pretty unfit so found the stairs down/back up a little more toward the medium rather than the signposted easy grade - but it is quite a short walk in and definitely worthwhile. You can also walk round the cliffs - however i didnt do this. Very windy out on the lookouts so hold onto your valuables. The gravel road in was in good condition for 2wd as of oct 2019.

This lookout involves a few minutes descent from the parking area and rewards visitors with a great view. The wind can really pick up during the descent, so hold on tightly to hats and cameras!

Upon reaching the parking area, the walk towards the lookout is 400m walk. It’s descending so be prepared to walk upwards on return. It was very quiet and we were the only couple there after another couple passed us on our way there. Upon reaching the first lookout where the stone sign of the lookout is placed, you can almost a panaromic view of the mountains. It was windy and being a 60kg woman I had problem staying firmly on the ground 😄. I had wanted to descend to the final lookout place but the wind was making it difficult. So I abandoned the plan. But it was a great nevertheless
