Highest drop 25m
A relatively short canyon, with a more open upper section with pools, jumps and swims. Then the canyon closes in for several drops, including a very impressive pitch into a giant cavern.
This canyon is fully described in the Canyoning in NZ guidebook.

Work has begun on upgrading the highway bridge over Robinson creek. There are likely to be construction vehicles working in/around the “Carpark” area. Make sure you park well clear of any potential operations, even considering parking at a different location.
Also, the earthworks will make the water reference picture irrelevant, with changes to the stream bed and bridge structure. Take care evaluating the water levels for yourself!

The logjam at R8 has been demolished by a rockfall. The rockfall appears to be more stable than the previous logjam.The anchors are still in place, and able to be reached if needed.
The new rockfall can be down-climbed, however there are some quite scary ‘holes’ between boulders where you would not want to slip. Take extra care when traversing this rockfall.
