Perfect day trip for those who really want a challenge! This day includes two action packed adventures that will have you coming back for more. Melbourne Adventure Hub is the only company in Victoria to offer these two action packed adventures in 1 day.
- Two fantastic adventures in a full day, Caving and River Sledding
- All equipment provided
- No experience required
- Lunch included
Depending on the day, you may do Caving first or River Sledding.
You’ll strap on a helmet and a head torch and climb, slither, push and navigate your way through an exciting cave system. Inside this brand new world you’ll get to see phosphorous glow worms, cave crickets and other amazing cave-dwelling critters. Some spots are tight where you will need to wriggle like a worm, other spots you will be able to stand up and walk around.
This activity is a huge amount of fun! River Sleds are purpose built craft that are designed specifically to allow beginners to journey down the grade 1 & 2 rapids of the Yarra River, within the stunning Warburton region. Laying down on your sled you will at times drift down the river in a relaxed state whilst taking in the lush green scenery of the tall mountain ash, red gums and ferns, and at other times you will be adventuring and negotiating your way down the rapids, holding onto the handles of your sled as you dip over some small rapid drops.
The 2 locations for this activity are both suitable for beginners & intermediate adventurers. A day of fun & excitement awaits you!
This adventure uses two locations. Caving is at Yarra Junction (approx 1 hour from Melbourne) and the River Sledding is at Warburton just another 10 minutes further down the road. We will send you confirmation details upon booking so you will have a map and directions.
