Behana Gorge Adventure

Behana Gorge Adventure

Behana Gorge has a public walking track but is closed to vehicles. A 3.2 kilometre steep walk will get you to the top of the gorge where the best waterfalls are located. Don’t feel like the walk? Only our tour can drive you all the way to the top.

No prior abseiling experience required. Our qualified and experienced guides provide the utmost professionalism to ensure your safety whilst giving you a dose of crazy, fun adventure.

We pick you up and drop you off from your accomodation in the Cairns City Area. Easy! Only a 45 minute drive from Cairns until we reach Behana Gorge. Once we get to the gorge and soak in the beautiful sights, we’ll instruct each of you on abseiling techniques.

A guide will be with you the entire time to make sure everything is safe. We start at the top of the gorge where all the best waterfalls are located and then we canyon our way down the gorge by abseiling, cliff jumping, sliding and swimming.

Hungry yet? We’ll provide a snack lunch and why not chill out for a while and enjoy this beautiful area that nature provides us. After this, we’ll head back to Cairns and drop you at your accommodation 


  • Transfers to & from Cairns in an air-conditioned mini-bus
  • Safety equipment to wear for the canyoning adventure
  • Professional abseil instruction from a certified instructor

Behana Canyoning Reviews


Alison Jamieson

Awesome day out! Exceeded my expectations. Had never been canyoning before, but stoked that this was my first experience. The fellas are super friendly and will ensure that you get the most fun out of your day. Enjoyable to be out playing in a beautiful, untouched part of the world. This was a highlight of my Cairns trip and would highly recommend if you're into adventure.


Ian Fuller

Behana Canyoning is hands-down one of the best adventure tour companies I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. Sam and Dom did an amazing job guiding us all through the waterfalls/canyons/cliff jumps/abseils! The crew is outstanding, and the location itself is insanely beautiful and unique to all other canyons I've explored. If you find yourself in Cairns/Queensland, Australia, and love outdoor recreation/nature/adventure, this epic trip is an absolute MUST!!!!!!
