Back Creek Gorge - Abseil

The bushies arrive at the bottom of Back Creek Gorge.

On 21 February 2009, Ron Farmer took a group of enthusiastic YHA bushies to Canungra. Back Creek Gorge was just a short drive and a short walk away.
A little rain made the rocks slippery and we had to watch our step negotiating the creek.
The first descent was beside waterfall with a overhang.
The self-belay system used was very safe - I survived tipping upside down.
Lunch was in the creek and
Recent rain had changed conditions down stream so we turned upstream. It was a tough walk along the sides of the canyon.
The next descent was also at a waterfall and had an overhang - I didn't tip upside down this time.
I'm looking forward to the next abseil adventure.
