The Portaledge Pic­nic is a unique ex­pe­ri­ence that you won’t do any­where else in Aus­tralia. Sus­pended 300 me­tres above the val­ley floor off the Mt Buf­falo Gorge, Ab­so­lute Out­doors Aus­tralia lo­cated in Pore­punkah, of­fers an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence of breath­tak­ing views ac­com­pa­nied by a pic­nic bas­ket full of good­ies to in­dulge in. While it might be more suited to a spring day there is no rea­son not to take the plunge if the sun is out and it isn’t snow­ing. The ad­ven­ture be­gins by meet­ing at the Gorge where you will tackle the 25m and 45m ab­seil that will guar­an­tee an el­e­vated heart rate. The next stage is be­ing low­ered onto your own pri­vate portaledge for a se­lec­tion of lo­cal pro­duce that will top off the whole ex­pe­ri­ence. A must do if you don’t mind hang­ing off a ledge.
