Abseiling the Kangaroo Point Cliffs

Similar to rock climbing, abseiling is a great activity that promotes trust and self-confidence in your students. They will develop great teamwork skills, encouraging and motivating each other to step over the edge of the cliffs to start their abseiling experience.

During the 20 metre descent offering stunning views of Brisbane and the river, they will explore the natural law of gravity, feeling their own body weight against the drop below. Slowly, trust will overcome the natural instinct of fear, allowing for an incredible sensation, students usually can’t get enough of.
