A wave of daring new adventurists now recognise Canberra as a place to call home. If you too have the call of the wild let us take you on a tour of the places these self-proclaimed “dirtbags” love nestling among the mountains
Red Rock Gorge
The glorious red stone nestled in the valley of Kambah Pools has a little something for everyone. Hard and easy, short and long, technique and strength, it’s a sports climber’s paradise. Take in the beautiful views of the Murrambidgee from the top of the rock and then treat yourself to a hard earned dip in the river after on those hot summer days.
Canberra’s premiere rock offers the most stunning views the capital has to offer with a full panoramic of Namadgi National Park. Pure granite slabs reaching up to 100m high make this rock a national treasure for traditional climbers of the region.
A boulderers playground nestled on the hills of Weston Creek is the perfect place to practice your technique outdoors. With a wide variety of difficulties, graceful granite and a picturesque hike on offer Cooleman ridge makes for a great day out with friends.
Canberra Indoor Rock Climbing
The new and improved Mitchell Indoor Rock Climbing Centre aims to improve the ability of all the dreamers out there who have ever looked at a wall and wanted to climb it. The support of all the coaches and experienced climbers around will help you achieve your goals in the outdoors no matter what they are.
Ever wanted to tap in to the unknown strength of your long lost ancestors? Well Blochaus will have you climbing like a monkey in no time. The best centre for bouldering is much more than a learning place for climbers, it is a community like-minded people sharing events and good times with their regular Haus Parties an absolute must!
