Both our Half day Canyon options at Behana or Crystals are amazing, and you may be having a tough time trying to decide between the two below are the differences between each site but it doesn’t necessariliy make the decision any easier!


Crystal Canyon

One of the most popular Waterfalls in the Cairns Region is the beautiful Crystal Cascades, surrounded by tropical rainforest, with a 2km track passing through of many water pools. Cairns Canyoning offers a whole other level of experience to explore these waterfalls through our water courses… Enjoy a 30 metre zipline into the refreshing pool, an abseil down & through one of the waterfalls itself, jumps, slides, abseils, a chance to appreciate nature in a different style of adventure. 

  • Ages 12 years or older – only one way down
  • Abseils – up to 5 (largest being 32m / 104ft)
  • Rock Jumps – up to 2 (4m or optional 10m)
  • Rockslides – 1
  • Plunge pools or similar – none at this site
  • Ziplines – 1 (30m into the water)



Behana Canyon 

Surrounded by lush green rainforest, granite formations, & stunning views of the gorge. Behana is a wide open space with it’s main feature being a series of waterfalls coming together into a bowl… From the main waterfall  we canyon our way down a variety of water features (abseiling, cliff jumping, sliding, swimming & exploring) with your qualified guide. The best thing about Behana Canyon experience is that everything on this course is optional & each of our guests can make the choices of what they’d like to do without it affecting the other people in their group – this makes it ideal for families or those a little nervous or first time canyoners whilst still catering to those more intermediate/advanced levels in a fun, safe way.

Cairns Canyoning has exclusive vehicle use of the 3.2km track to Behana Gorge situated in Wooroonooran World Heritage National Parks QLD (40mins drive from Cairns). On arrival to location our guides will instruct each of you on abseiling techniques & correct use of gear. Taking up a Canyoning experience in the warm tropics offers a refreshing way to cool down, enjoy nature that will make your friends & family wish they’d have done it with you!

  • Ages 8 years or older – due to every activity on course being optional
  • Abseils – up to 2
  • Rock Jumps – up to 3 (largest being 12m)
  • Rockslides – up to 2 (weather dependant)
  • Plunge pools or similar – up to 2 (weather dependant)
  • Ziplines – none at this site


Spillway Canyon

Only available to the public through Cairns Canyoning is the rewarding full day canyoning section, otherwise known as Spillway Canyon. You’ll need to be adventurous, have swimming experience & a determination to overcome your fears…

In the morning you’ll see the beautiful Cairns City views on the way up to Lake Morris (Copperlode Dam), once at Lake Morris you’ll change to stunning views of the lake & surrounding World Heritage Wet Tropics rainforest… from here we will get ready for Canyoneering, show you the ropes, walk through the days plan before decending / abseiling over a 52 meter drop.

You’ll see parts of FNQ that very few will ever get to see, let alone experience… We have bigger drops, slides, water chute, waterfalls, abseils and more, on this full day Spillway Canyoning. The full day canyoning course finishes 4.2km downstream at Crystal Cascades (one of Cairns Most Popular Waterfalls)

Our canyoning course has been designed to have no environmental impact, it’s an unforgetable experience & we’d love to show this to you!
