Gloucester Abseiling Tours

Ever wondered why adventurers of all ages love to go abseiling? The thrill of going over a rocky cliff and defying gravity is one of the great lures and we offer abseiling sessions at two scenic locations: The Steps cliff (10 metres): This smooth flat rock face is located at The Steps Campground above the beautiful Barrington River near Gloucester New South Wales. The site almost looks like it's been purpose-built for beginners, young kids or adults afraid of heights. Here you'll learn about anchoring, safe use of descenders and how not to slip out of your safety harness. Buccan Buccans (The Bucketts Mountains) cliff (22 metres): For the best views in Gloucester! This craggy rock face is situated on the Buccan Buccans overlooking Gloucester and the surrounding scenic valley and ranges. After a short walk up from the base of the range to the cliff you will learn about anchoring, safe use of descenders and how not to slip out of your safety harness. This cliff is suitable for braver kids, teenagers and adults.
