Behana Gorge Day Tour Info
Behana Gorge Adventure
We’ll walk, swim and abseil over rocky gorges and through tropical rainforest. Leap off rocks into deep pools and generally have a wonderful time. Reasonable fitness level essential.
We pick you up from your accomodation in the Cairns City Area at 08:00am. Easy! Only a 45 minute drive from Cairns until we reach Behana Gorge. Once we get to the gorge and soak in the beautiful sights, we’ll instruct each of you on abseiling techniques.
Behana Gorge has a public walking track but is closed to vehicles. A 3.2 kilometre steep walk will get you to the top of the gorge where the best waterfalls are located. Don’t feel like the walk? We’ll drive you all the way to the top.
Once we get to the gorge and soak in the beautiful sights, we’ll instruct each of you on abseiling techniques on the safety of flat ground.
A guide will be with you the entire time to make sure everything is entirely safe. We’ll start our adventure near the top of the gorge and abseil into the fresh water. From here, we’ll swim, walk over rocky gorges and through the tropical rainforest, leap off rocks into the deep pools below and abseil our way through Behana. Don’t worry, it’s not a long distance and anyone of a reasonable fitness level will love this adventure.
Hungry yet? We’ll provide a fresh lunch and why not chill out for a while and enjoy this beautiful area that nature provides us. After this, we’ll head back to Cairns and drop you at your accommodation at approximately 4:00pm.
