We take you as deep as you can go into the wild heart of Karijini :)

The Joffre Journey will only be available to clients that have done a tour with us in Perth and/or have done a canyon with us before.

If we can't be reached, please email us at info@spacechameleon.com.au with a return phone number to make your inquiry. Please be aware due to the nature of phone service in the area, calling our number may give you a message that our phone no longer works. This is NOT the case, but a technical error by the server. We also do not get missed calls when we are in the canyons. An email is always the best way to contact us or call us after 1700 each day. We do not take online bookings and need to speak to all clients to assess suitability before booking a tour.

Once there we will give you a briefing on how to use your via ferrata lanyards and then make our way onto the ledge via a rope overlooking Reagan's Pool. We descend down to Reagan's Pool, and make our way to the top of the Chute. Via a handline (unless the flow of water requires a belay line), we make our way even deeper into the heart of Karijini to the Centre of the Earth. Once there we take a look out into Junction Pool, and then begin to make our way back the same way we came, all the way back to the carpark at the top.

 

This day typically runs for approximately 4 hours, 0900 - 1300. This is an introduction to class 6 canyoning suitable for most people including children. We do not have an age restriction for this canyoning experience as long as the harness and helmet fit, and children attending can follow instructions given by our guides. Parents are required to participate as a duty of care. 

This canyoning adventure is also perfect for larger groups and team building adventures for corporate groups, as we can accomodate numbers up to 25 and the day is shorter running around 4 hours. Our full day tours run at a 15 person maximum and around 6.5 hours. Get in touch to discuss your teams needs and group discounts.
