Lots of fun. Great opportunities to learn about the local area. Fun for kids with mini stops along the rail track. Well worth a visit.

Self Drive was fun. Kids enjoyed the bush walk and feeding the Ducks and chickens. Paul (Guide) is a great personality. Highly recommend.

What a fun way to spend an afternoon. The self drive tour along these previously disused rail track was enjoyed by the whole family with interesting walk in the bush and ‘cup of tea’ stop too.

Great trip and interesting things to see along the way. Scenic bush walk special and Pauls knowledge of the area adds to the trip.
