We've just returned home from our stay in Halls Gap and wanted to give a shoutout to Glenn and the team at Absolute Outdoors. On Wednesday we went abseiling and it was the absolute highlight of our trip. Glenn was very knowledgable and relaxed and made us all feel at ease and the abseiling itself was fantastic. Would highly recommend... More

We were doing a 4 day hike with kids in the Grampians during Easter. Absolute Outdoors were incredible! They helped us with maps, suggestions, water drops and general advice. Nothing was too much trouble. From first contact via phone from Melbourne to face to face assistance and a pick up from a camp site they were exemplary. We are experienced... More

A friend and I drove up to the Grampians purely to go abseiling and rock climbing. And it was worth the long drive from the city. Our instructor was Billie and she was very informative and enthusiastic. She made the somewhat daunting task incredibly fun and enjoyable. She even put up with our obsession with taking photos and took some... More

We had a very good climbing and abseiling experience. Billy (Biljana) is a great, enthusiastic and very friendly Instructor. She did an awesome job! Great humour! Very professional introduction! We enjoyed the whole day and we will definitely recommend this great company! On top it is totally worth the money! Cheers Julia, Stefan and Kai!

We signed up to do a climbing and abseiling outing with the guys from Absolute Outdoors. Dom and Will were our guides, and they did a terrific job fitting everyone and getting them up some pretty good (short) climbs. Our children, who are 10 and 8, were keen on the activities, but both of them were a bit nervous doing... More

My brother in law and daughter went on a guided canoe tour on Lake Bellfield. They had a great experience; the guide, Dom, was sensitive to the age and ability ranges in the group and knew quite a bit about the Lake. The whole tour lasted two hours on the water which made the $60 seem reasonable. Described to me... More
