As in previous years, I will have several leaders to take walks on each day so you can choose who you might like to walk with and the grades range from 2 to 5.

Mark G.
Canyon | A trip through a canyon (a gully surrounded by tall cliffs).Public Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.ALL INTENDING WALKERS MUST BE DOUBLE VACCINATED. Hat Hill Canyon is a spectacular canyon in the upper Blue Mountains which doesn't require abseiling. There are a few short swims so a wetsuit is required as the water is usually cold. A helmet is also a good idea and if you don't have one I have plenty I can lend out. This trip was cancelled previously due to the fires then floods in 2019/20 so I'm hoping, third time is lucky. A few short compulsory swims with rock scrambling and hopping along the creek.
