From US$131.07
Low Price Guarantee
Leap off the Behana Gorge waterfalls with confidence, knowing that an experienced guide is there to provide expertise and supervision.

What to Expect
Begin your waterfall adventure with convenient pickup at your Cairns accommodation, and enjoy the scenery on the southern route along Bruce highway. Get to know your fellow thrill-seekers on the drive to Behana, and listen to background info from your guide.
Disembark and receive instruction on rappelling techniques. Your guide will be with you the entire time to make sure you are safe. Rappel from the top of the gorge, walk through the tropical rain forest, and leap off rocks into the deep canyon pools below.

Hang out on the side of the gorge and dig in to a provided lunch to fuel the rest of your day exploring.
