Abseiling & Giant Swing

Abseiling, Leap of Faith and Rope Course Facilities

A certified Abseil Platform has been attached to a rock bluff and provides a free fall of 40 meters down into the Washpen Canyon, amongst spectacular scenery and onto a purpose built platform situated just above the Washpen Creek. 


A day out with family or friends, this abseiling course is the perfect activity. Up to six people can abseil at once, providing the ultimate challenge, personal self achievement and self confidence. We also have two Rope Course facilities that are available and provide a variety of challenges. 


Giant Swing 

Our Giant Swing is quite the attraction at Washpen Falls. Swing high across the sky line and see the stunning view of the Canterbury Plains, not a view you want to miss! 

This activity will get your heart racing and leave you with lasting memories of an adventure filled day in the High Country. 


Safety first: Qualified New Zealand instructors for reasons of safety and personal integrity will always operate and supervise these activities.
