What we will do
To view our Covid-19 Update - please review the Terms and Conditions Page.
You approach the edge of the cliff, nervous but excited. The rope takes your weight, its strength reassuring. Below you, the proud ramparts of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs plunge some 20 metres to the banks of the Brisbane River. The sun dips low in the west, the sky darkens, and the lights of the city twinkle into existence one by one. Your pulse quickens as you step over the edge, descending with the help and encouragement of your Pinnacle Sports guide.
This is the Kangaroo Point Sunset Abseil a unique and unforgettable experience. Join us for a challenging and atmospheric evening in one of Brisbane's most iconic locations.
Our awesome guides are highly trained, fully accredited, and heaps of fun! They'll teach you everything you need to know, as well as take care of the safety procedures and provide all the gear, including harness, helmet and all other equipment. All youll need is a water bottle, appropriate clothing, and enclosed shoes for getting around the cliffs (and a camera couldnt hurt!)
