If you have a bucket list or some such thing, make sure this trip is on it. The experience, the owners & guides are all 1st class, & the Dove Canyon itself is awesome. On Monday 16th January we, wife & self (51 & 55 y/o) went on our 1st canyoning trip & had just THE BEST time thanks to Anthony & Nick, our guides, who appeared to have as much fun as the rest of us. The initial jump was a little daunting, however that didn't last long & the thrill of making that & subsequent jumps & slides, particularly the "Laundry Shute" gave us all just the biggest grins. Lunch was delicious, & gave everyone (we had a great crew on the day) a bit of time to compare experiences before continuing on. After the final photo 'op' at the conclusion of the canyoning trip, it was the 20 minute very, very steep climb in full wet suits (reasonable fitness required here) back to the jump off point & dry clothes for the final walk out. Final comment: Have a go you won't regret it!

My first time ever canyoning. Took the Dove Canyon tour and had an absolute blast. Six waterfalls, each to be tackled in a different, fun and challenging way (though safe too!). The tour guides were superb. Can hardly wait for the next tour to come out.

My husband and I did the Lost World trip and absolutely loved it! Our canyoning guides were fun and interactive, and made the trip a thousand times more enjoyable. You get to completely submerge yourself in the beauty that is Cradle Mountain. The jumps and slides you get to do are very fun and the surroundings are just stunning. We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Cradle Mountain. We can't wait to come back and do the other canyoning tour!

Having seen the great video online, and having canyoned elsewhere, i had high expectations for this having convinced family and friends to do it with me...all 11 of us! We have all canyoned before and my kids and wife have undertaken canyoning courses in New South Wales. Put simply it met and exceeded our expectations. Dove Canyon is pretty special...perfect for canyoning. We had a wonderful shared experience. Anthony and Nic were very professional and safety conscious, while also letting us loose. Most importantly, they were great fun to be around. You can really feel it when someone loves what they do and want to share it with others. JUST GO DO IT!
