Activity Inclusions


  • Experience the thrill of abseiling in the You yangs regional park, located only 45 minutes from Melbourne!
  • You'll be equipped with harnesses and helmets and taken through a safety demonstration
  • Guided by your instructor you will be tied in securely via two ropes; your abseil line, which you will control and also a safety line, which is controlled by an instructor
  • You can enjoy as many abseils as you can fit into the session while taking in the breathtaking scenery of the You Yangs regional park and the surrounding areas
  • Meet in the Big Rock car park, You Yangs Regional Park, Vic (follow the signs for Big Rock once you have entered the park)

Rock Climbing (You Yangs)

  • You will have the opportunity to climb multiple routes, learn climbing techniques and enjoy an action packed few hours
  • Learn from qualified and experienced climbing instructors who will give you tips to improve your technique throughout the session
  • All equipment is included as well as climbing shoes, which enable you to gain more traction on the rock and make learning to climb much easier!
  • The cliff face is surrounded by beautiful 360 degree views and the park is rich in aboriginal heritage, so there is plenty to explore before and after your rock climbing adventure!
  • Meeting point is at Turntable car park in the You Yangs Regional Park, located just outside of Little River (around 45 minutes from Melbourne) ​


  • Formed over thousands of years of water erosion, these huge granite boulders jumbled on top of each other house a unique eco-system of glow worms, cave crickets and fungi, amongst others
  • Wade through subterranean rivers, crawl through some tight squeezes, negotiate your way over chasms and view the beautiful glow worms
  • There are multiple exits and entries to the cave system, which enables even the most claustrophobic of people to have an enjoyable time
  • Remember this is not your average guided walk-around caving experience - this is adventure caving or Spelunking as it is otherwise called! You will be crawling on your hands and knees, scrambling over rocks, sliding, navigating some tight spaces, exploring hidden caverns and getting wet and muddy
  • Meet in the car park adjacent to Park Road in Yarra Junction (at the footy oval). Please do not drive to the caves

Whitewater Kayaking

  • Paddle down Melbourne’s very own Yarra River from the seat of a two-man inflatable kayak!
  • Experience grade 2 whitewater kayaking from the seat of a two-man inflatable kayak. Tackle Bobs rock and pinball rapid!
  • Challenge yourself as you paddle down the rapids whilst negotiating the twists and turns of the mighty Yarra!
  • The experienced team will demonstrate how to paddle and steer the kayak, then it’s two adrenaline-packed hours on grade 2 rapids
  • Be prepared for more than a little splashing as you paddle through the rapids and breaking waves carving their way through gorges and valleys full of native bush land. The kayaks we use are very stable and forgiving so it is suitable for total beginners to navigate their way down the rapids
  • *The water level is lower in summer months which make the rapids more technical. For a wild ride we recommend coming along during winter months when the water level is generally much higher with large waves and furious rapids!
  • Meet at the car park at the very end of Lower homestead road, Wonga park, Melbourne
