Australia's Bustling Capital
In and around Canberra are several available rock climbing and abseiling locations, mostly located on the sheer cliffs and gorges of the nearby Black Mountain - a popular site for amateurs and experts alike. Outstanding opportunities to abseil, rock climb and explore secluded gorges can be found at other popular sites such as Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura. Cotter Rocks, only 20 minutes from the city centre, also offers numerous beginners’ courses for those looking for an affordable and friendly introduction to the sport as well as more challenging abseiling opportunities for those looking for a challenge. An abseil usually lasts between 2 to 2.5 hours and costs around $70 for adults.
