Dove Canyon is Tassie adventure at its best. We walk through pristine rain forest to this stunning canyon. After abseiling in, we spend the day walking and floating through the canyon and doing what we have to do to navigate the obstacles we find along the way. The main obstacles are six waterfalls which we abseil, jump or slide off!

One of the highlights is the Laundry Chute – a ten metre high natural slide that shoots you out of a large cave (which we call The Pit) into a big open pool. Very unique and highly exhilarating. 

This is a committing trip – once you’re in, there’s only one way out and there is no way to walk around any of the waterfalls. Having said that, most of our clients have no canyoning experience, and it doesn’t require any particular skills as such – just an ability to swim and a sense of adventure.

You do need a descent level of fitness. The hardest part of the day physically is the hike out of the canyon. It is 20 minutes, up a steep hill, in a wetsuit, to get back to where our dry clothes are waiting for us.


What To Bring

  • Something to go under your wetsuit (bathers or undies will suffice. A rash-vest or thermal top if you have them are good).
  • Light clothes in which to walk into the canyon. Shorts and t-shirt, or something similar. We walk in in our canyoning shoes, so don’t worry about bringing walking shoes.
  • A towel.
  • If you require the aid of glasses, you will need to bring a strap to secure them.
  • Don’t bring anything valuable with you. The river gods have a taste for jewellery and Swiss watches.
