Crystal Canyon - Departs at 6:30am

Crystal Cascades is one of the most beautiful places to swim near Cairns! This natural water hole and waterfall is popular for day trippers from the city, but canyoning allows you to take your experience to the next level! 

Enjoy 5 abseils with the largest being 32m (104ft), a rock slide, and up to 2 rock jumps at either 4m or 10m. There is also a 30m zipline that whisks you through the forest and drops you into a freshwater pool! 

This canyoning experience is only for people ages 12 or over, as it is slightly challenging and there is only one way down. So once you embark on this journey, you have to take part in all the fun activities!

Behana Gorge - Departs at 12pm

The afternoon canyoning option visits Behana Gorge. Located in Wooroonooran World Heritage National Parks, Behana Gorge is a massive pool with multiple waterfalls streaming in. There are unique granite rock formations and magical tropical rainforests surrounding the gorge. 

This tour is more suitable for beginner canyoners and can take guests ages 8 or older. Every activity in the gorge is optional, so it's great for families and travelers who want a mellow introduction to canyoning. You can choose which activities you'd like to try without affecting the rest of the group. If you're more experienced and daring, you can try it all!

Activities include up to 2 abseils, up to 3 rock jumps with the largest being 12m high, up to 2 rockslides, a water chute, and up to 2 plunge pools. There are no ziplines at this site.

The Service Operator reserves the right to alter prices and extra costs. Extra costs may include EMC fees, Stingersuit/Wetsuit Hire, Luggage Storage, Insurance, Linen Hire, National Park Fees, Fuel Levies, Dietary Fees, etc. Bonds may also apply.

We will also endeavour to communicate these extra costs with you at the time of booking, and on your ticket. However, it is your responsibility to confirm which (if any) additional costs apply with each Service Operator upon reconfirming your trip.


Travel Risk/Insurance:

It should be noted that adventure travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard clients, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or loss due to the actions of our clients which are beyond our control. We highly recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on the confirmed date of departure. You should also ensure your travel insurance will cover special circumstances including weather events preventing guests from travelling to their tour departure destination and cancelled flights due to unforeseen circumstances.

Failure to meet at the specified pick-up location may be treated as “No Show”, for which the Client Cancellation Policy applies.

All departures and itineraries are subject to weather. Tours may be changed or cancelled for any reason at the discretion of the Service Operator. If the Service Operator has to cancel the trip or activity (prior to departure) and we cannot offer a suitable alternative, then a refund will be given minus a 20% administration fee and any associated card fees. We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance, especially during the wet season.

In the unlikely event of your trip being cancelled or stood down, all guest communication is required to go through our Online Store via telephone or email. While there is a Sailing Whitsundays retail outlet located Airlie Beach, please be aware that they operate as a separate entity and are unable to access reservations made by the Mr Travel online department.

All refunds are in Australian Dollars and must be made to the card of payment. Cairns Tours/Mr Travel is not liable for exchange rate fluctuations or fees, or any other merchant/bank fees associated with domestic and/or international transactions.

Where a full refund is applicable, there is the option to transfer the whole cost of the tour to another tour or “Credit” to avoid the administration fee. A transfer fee of $20 will apply.

You will be emailed confirmation once the refund has been processed. Once the refund has been processed, it may still take time for the banks to clear the amount. Please allow 7-10 business days for the funds to clear into Australian accounts and up to 21 business days for international accounts.


Accountability/Misconduct:

All Service Operators have the right to provide client feedback and to cancel bookings based off of feedback from other Service Operators. 

Please enjoy your travel experience in a kind and responsible manner.

Cairns Tours/Mr Travel will treat this as any normal client cancellation and therefore the cancellation fees stated in the Client Cancellation Policy will apply.

Ethan Carerra, 07 Jun 24
Paige and Spencer were super awesome! Got lucky and had a small group of 5 of us. We did the 8, 10, and 12 meter jumps and all the slides and abseiling. I’ve never cliff jumped in my life and they made me feel very safe and confident. My favorite tour in my month of traveling on the east coast!
Beth Chambers, 24 May 24
We did the half day canyoning tour at Behana Falls, we had such a fantastic time. All the instructors were so funny and lovely, did a great job at making sure everyone was happy and comfortable whilst also pushing you to try things at your pace. It was an action packed day and we had so much fun and a good laugh! Nice size of group, everyone encouraging each other and helping out. Would absolutely recommend to any thrill seekers
Jess, 23 Mar 23
If you're keen for an adventurous half day trip, then you can't go past these guys! Pete and Marcio were great guides! Always made everyone feel safe and ensured we had options, if something was a little challenging. and they are such funny characters! Behana Gorge is a stunning place of natural beauty. The waterfall and rapids were flowing with all the recent rain we had so made for quite the adventure! From cliff jumping, rock climbing, rappelling and river rapid cruising, it was so much fun. Highly recommend it for a half day trip!
