We have taken 30 to 50 twenty yr old students every year for the past 10 years with High n Wild - it is capacity building and a lesson in self-preservation and courage for all of them. The staff are 100% reliable, the climbs always thoughtfully selected to group and weather conditions and the experience ALWAYS positive. Highly highly recommended.... More

I did what I think was a trifecta of awesome: the Boars head abseiling and Empress Canyon in one day, and the Sweet Dreams rock climbing. Going with a private guide meant I didn't have to wait for groups of other people to do the each individual pitch and I thoroughly recommend it. Both the guides were legends, clearly knew... More

I just took my corporate team of 18 people offsite and we did the half day abseiling adventure with High 'N Wild as our team building activity.

My friends and I did the Empress Canyon which involved a morning of abseiling followed by an afternoon canyoning which ended in an abseil down a waterfall. We had not originally planned on doing this canyon as we wanted to do a full day canyoning however we were advised a few days before hand that the water was too cold... More

Paid $450 for 2 people to abseil down 5/6 15 metre slopes and walk close to 10km on a dangerously slippery downhill slope, only to have to walk all the way back up in the boiling sun. 'Lunch provided' consisted of 2 ham sandwiches you made yourself in the morning and carried with you for the trip. The two instructors... More

Hi Albert, I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy the canyon. All of our previous reviews of this canyon have been very positive. Our lunch is always fresh salad and rolls with cheese, ham or tuna and has to be pre-made so you can take it into the bush. I've never received a negative response about the guides working that day,... More

My wife and I thought we'd try abseiling during a weekend in the Blue Mountains. Tim and Gemma were excellent - starting us on a small rock, then progressing up to an amazing 30m drop. Felt safe and exhilarated at the same time. Give it a go!

I did a full day of abseiling with Stu as my guide. It was incredible! Reading the description, I thought doing only four jumps wouldn't be a lot. However, we were able to do all of the jumps multiple times. Stu did a great job making sure everyone felt safe and comfortable. He knew the right amount to talk to... More
