The Far South Coast is known for its Adventure tourism and adrenalin-pumping adventures – that’s because this natural playground is filled from north to south coast with untamable wilderness and hundreds opportunities for heart-pumping fun.
Roaring streams gush past sheer cliffs that are perfect for rock climbing and abseiling, as tour groups hurtle down nature’s waterslide underneath.
