Ready for fun? This full day will challenge and excite! The bearer of this gift will get to explore caves in Yarra Junction & then River Sledding the stunning Warburton Yarra Valley region. This experience runs from November to May.
- Two fantastic adventures in a full day, Caving and River Sledding
- Located in the beautiful Yarra Valley
- Lunch included
They’ll strap on a helmet and a head torch and climb, slither, push and navigate their way through an exciting cave system. Inside this brand new world they’ll get to see phosphorous glow worms, cave crickets and other amazing cave-dwelling critters. Some spots are tight where they will need to wriggle like a worm, other spots they 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 the sled they 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. At other times they will be adventuring and negotiating their way down the rapids, holding onto the handles of the sled as they 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 them!
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 them confirmation details upon booking so they will have a map and directions.
