To the extreme: Canyoning in Canungra
Six friends, five waterfalls, four lagoons, three huge jumps, two ropes, one river. This was my first trip canyoning down in Canungra, a little town west of the Gold Coast.
There is a little place called Back Creek, a river containing six waterfalls. We abseiled and swam through gorges and jumped off waterfalls into lagoons. It was awesome.
All of us were good mates through work, and all experienced in the outdoor guiding industry.
The main reason this was one of the best outdoor trips I have done is purely because despite the minimal number of abseils, the river still took the whole day to get down.
A day of hiking down river in the heat of Queensland, talking with friends, enjoying the water, swimming at every opportunity, enjoying the company of small frogs and snakes along the way.
I would go back to Queensland purely to do this trip again.
