I'm James 'Cas' Castrission!
My claim to fame is as an adventurer who hit the headlines for completing two world-first expeditions; first paddling from Australia to New Zealand and then walking unsupported to the South Pole.
My passion these days is to share the magic of adventure with as many people as possible via my one-of-a-kind adventure programs.
As a parent of two awesome kids, I would like you to join me in the Blue Mountains to invest in your relationship with your kids.
This is an unforgettable getaway, unlike anything else you will ever experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
Although a moderate level of fitness is recommended to participate, attendees will be split into groups based on their medical history and prior experience, with activities tailored to the fitness levels of each group. You could be in store for things like abseiling, canyoning, bushwalking, and/or yoga!
If you have any concerns about your health and wellbeing during the activities, please consult a health care professional for advice before beginning the program and follow the advice given during the program.
Although we encourage everyone to take part in all activities, participation is completely voluntary and at your discretion. Our guides have been carefully selected and are some of the most highly qualified guides in Australia. Safety is our number one priority and we recognise the difference between apprehension and genuine fear.
All activities are 100% seasonal and weather dependent. Our guides’ number one priority is keeping you safe and, as such, will adapt itineraries and activities based on local conditions and time in the outdoors.
We put safety first. It is what drives every decision of all our experienced guides and a responsibility that Cas takes incredibly seriously. Although statistically, more injuries occur in horse and bike riding than in doing the activities we conduct, there is a high perceived risk in the activities we undertake (i.e. looks scary). Through staff training and extensive risk assessments, we can ensure you and your team are in the best possible hands.
Yes. In the pre-brief information that each participant completes, we can cater for all food allergies and intolerances both in Base Camp and in the field.
Anytime! What changes are the activities that we conduct at different times of the year. In the middle of summer, we have had numerous groups over January/ February (the hottest time of the year) and enjoyed swimming in lush, shaded canyons. On the other side of the spectrum, we have had corporate groups in the middle of winter who have enjoyed mulled wine and hot water bottles in their sleeping bags.
Having said this, if you have flexibility, our recommendation would be October/ November and March/ April.
Yes. However, we do try and encourage all participants to be fully present and only use devices if they must.
From Sydney CBD to Base Camp, the drive is approximately 1hr 45mins.
Your child needs to be between 9yrs and 16yrs of age.
