Overview
More
The one and only way to experience Hogsback - Bicycle Rental, Abseiling and Archery. Mountain Biking: Our scenic bike tour takes you past numerous waterfalls to hidden viewpoints off the beaten track. The guide's local knowledge will entertain you with interesting facts about the area while you take in the breathtaking views. Enjoy a refreshing swim in a natural jacuzzi and a picnic at Robinson Dam. Meander through pine plantations along the old jeep tracks, then enter the indigenous forests where you'll face some single track madness. Abseiling: Abseil down a 35m waterfall into the indigenous forests below - an exhilarating alternative to reaching the bottom of the famous Madonna & Child Waterfall. Archery: Looking for something safe, easy and fun for the whole family, then try your hand at the age old tradition of Archery.

An amazing experience well worth doing. There are no words to describe every emotion and thought that goes through your mind standing at the edge of the waterfall. Can't wait to get back there and do it again.More

We went abseiling with Hogsback Adventures and it was a great experience. The guy in charge is very professional and friendly, and abseiling down the waterfall was a great way of taking in the beauty of the landscape. We highly recommend it.
