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 .

Had an awesome day in a spectacular place, doing some blood pumping, adrenaline inducing jumps, slides and abseiling. A must do for adventure seekers.

I attended the afternoon session with my partner and 13 yo son. We were the only ones so our time was cosy and cruisy. The whole time we did enjoyed ourselves thoroughly even though we were out of breath at some parts. Definitely something to attend and get your whole family involved. Thank you team!

I had great fun with my partner in Dove Canyon last week though I was so nervous to jump. The cold water in a showers day is still bearable with the wetsuit as you are keep moving. The guides are professional, nice and take good care for us which make you feel very safe. Must do it in Tas if... More

Anthony and Al made Machinery Canyon a fantastic experience. Had booked to do Dove Canyon but venue changed due to high rainfall day before. The abseiling was awesome and Anthony & Al were professional, patient and encouraging. We had a 'picture perfect' day weatherwise, the canyon was incredible to see and even more so to experience. Can't rate highly enough.
