About Us

Adventure Base is a boutique outdoor retail business based in Katoomba, just minutes from the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. We are a small friendly team that love the outdoors.

In the Beginning - 

For years we had been guiding canyons and having fellow canyoners ask where we got our equipment from. Starting with the Bestard Canyon Guide we began sourcing the best canyoning equipment for friends and then friends of friends. At this point we could justify renovating the old Pine Furniture store on Katoomba St. This was our new home. Adventure Base was born.

Canyoning - 

Canyoning is our passion. We are the signature canyoning store of Australia. We have a huge selection of canyoning equipment including canyoning shoes, canyoning wetsuits, canyoning rope, canyoning descenders and canyoning packs. You can use the Çanyoning Essentials tab to get a good idea of what should be in your 'Personal Kit', 'Harness Kit', 'Pack Kit' and 'Rigging Kit'. 

Climbing - 

We also stock a huge range of climbing equipment including climbing ropes, climbing harnesses, climbing shoes, climbing helmets, climbing chalk, climbing guidebooks and climbing hardware. 

Hiking - 

As well as our Canyoning and Climbing range we stock a full range of hiking equipment including sleeping bags, sleeping mats clothing, hiking boots, stoves, cooking equipment, hats, guidebooks and maps. 

Hyperlite Mountain Gear -

We are huge fans of Hyperlite Mountain Gear. Our team use their packs all the time.
