AdventureAid is a big ol’ weekend of getting out in the Blue Mountains, while helping restore the land that’s been damaged by the fires this summer.

Have you been itching to spend an adventure weekend in the Blue Mountains? Well pack your bags and fill up the car, because next weekend is the perfect time to book another adventure. 

As part of AdventureAid, a tonne of local Blue Mountain adventure companies have pledged to donate every cent spent on a trip next weekend, to organisations helping to restore the damage done to crags and canyons around the Blueys. 

There’s an adventure for everyone, from climbing, mountain biking, abseiling and even a nighttime hike. Take a geez at the list below and see if anything takes your fancy. 


Saturday 29th Feb

Book one (or two or three) of these trips for next weekend and all of your money will be donated straight to one of the following organisations;

NSW Canyoning Association & Canyoncare

They aim to promote a code of ethics for canyoners and care for the environment, whilst working alongside National Parks. 


A volunteer run organisation that run projects to install infrastructure and upgrade tracks to climbing areas. They also promote the conservation of these areas and care for the local environment. 

Mount Wilson/Irvine RFS

The Mount Wilson RFS need donations to rebuild and prepare for the future after the fire devastated their community. The team will also be assessing tracks to canyons in Mt Wilson and Wollangambe, to ensure they’re safe for exploring in the future. 


Now’s the perfect time to get back out there and to help those communities still trying to get back on their feet. What better reason for an adventure?
