Thank you for the 10/10 recommendation for Axe Throwing at Glenworth Valley. Axe Throwing is the newest of our adventures and we are so glad to hear you had an axe-ellent time with Andre (sorry, couldn't help that play on words 😀). Andre will be axe-static (there I go again) to hear he contributed so much to the enjoyment factor of your experience. Can't wait to see you again. 🪓🎯

I would give 0 stars if I could!!
Worst Reception Staff!!
Worst Customer service.
1) We went there for the first time. So we were not sure where the bookings were done. We stayed in the long queue patiently and when it was our turn, the lady with curly pink/purple hair just yelled at us “move aside”. So, we were a bit confused and before we could even ask “where can we book the tickets?”, she yelled again “move aside”. She was very rude and did not give any proper information. If you guys don’t need customers, that lady is the perfect receptionist for you!!!
2) After the activity, we were told that we would get our photos in 1-2 weeks. It has been more than 3 weeks, we haven’t received our photos yet!! I contacted them twice for the photos but no response from them!!
Worst service. Will never go again or recommend this place to anyone!

Hi Lauren, I am very disappointed to read this review. It is certainly not the experience we hope for our guests. Could I please encourage that you give me a call on 4375 1222. My name is Michelle and I am the Business Support Coordinator for Glenworth Valley. I would love to speak to you further about your experience and, with a bit of luck, turn it around for you. I am available from Monday to Friday during the hours of 9am and 4:30pm. I really look forward to speaking with you when you get a moment.

Had an amazing experience, the staff were all friendly and really helpful. the way they treat the Horses with such care is always great to see, the way the staff pair you up with horses based on simple question they ask is really something else can never go wrong when giving horses out to guest to ride. I would highly recommend this place because of the staff here. The camps grounds are amazing as well, open fields to camp in worked really well.

If you go on a guided tour for horseback riding then I recommend none other then Georgia, her love for the tour is truly something else the amount of fun and interesting history and bush talk she gave throughout the tour was amazing and she is calm when having to handle sudden outburst of the horse personality.

Thank you for this lovely feedback. Jorja has been a part of the Glenworth Valley family for a long time. Like most staff, we come to Glenworth Valley and never leave 😄. For a lot of the guiding staff, Glenworth Valley is a 'passion' job and this shows in their enthusiasm for the horses, our guests and the valley in general. It is important that each and every guests needs are catered to. We are proud of the school we have built where we can offer experiences for complete beginners through to very experienced riders. There is a horse for everyone. We can't wait to welcome you back to Glenworth Valley to enjoy more of what we enjoy every day.

I did the 2 hour horse ride with Georgia on Todrick and it was absolutely superb. The organisation is outstanding and all riders were matched with suitable horses for their experience and size. All of the horses (200) are thoroughly schooled and reliable/ safe. Georgia was outstanding in leading the group and providing tips/ building confidence so that everyone had a great ride and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. Glenworth Valley is absolutely stunning - it really is an amazing place to experience the Australian Bush and wildlife. We were lucky enough to see an Echidna, as well as many other lizards and birds. I totally recommend this for all ages and levels of experience. I will definitely be returning. Thank you to the team!

Thank you for this amazing review. We love what we do and it is reflected in the enthusiasm of our guides. Jorja is fantastic and would have been thrilled to know she contributed to you enjoying your ride so much. We are so blessed with the abundance of wildlife on the property and work hard to maintain the natural bush habitat to ensure the preservation of what we get to enjoy every day. We can't wait to see you back at the valley again soon.

It was totally fantastic. Our guide Lauren was amazing, as I was tentative at first. I had never quad biked before, but got the hang of it and had the time of my life. Quad biking was the highlight of our holiday!.

This is the first time my son and I have tried Quad Biking. We all encountered some problems in controlling the accelerator and direction. Andre helped us gradually master the skills. It took us 30 minutes to drive to the biking site and only 15 minutes to get back. The adventure was well organized and friendly for the novices. Thank you, Andre!

As an experienced rider, I really enjoyed my recent horse riding experience at Glenworth Valley. I was paired with a beautiful mare called Pepper and the guide Jordan and volunteer Nakita was superb. I felt safe and relaxed at all times. We were able to go ahead and have a few canters which made the ride perfect for my level. Thanks to all the staff for ensuring safety and good communication so we all knew what to do. I will be back!!!

The horse riding was okay I wish that the groups were split based on rider skill as an experienced rider being put at the back of a group behind children that won’t go any faster than a walk and then being yelled at by a guide from another group that I’m kicking the horse which is what you’re meant to do to make them go? And then when you look at them they mouth words at you. The guide I had was super nice but the guide from the other group was so rude and unprofessional making me feel bad and ruined the rest of my ride as I felt like I was unable to do anything without being called out when I was doing nothing wrong.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We take all feedback seriously and always take onboard to ensure we meet the expectations of our visitors. We are very sorry to hear that you didn't have the best possible experience whilst on a trail ride with us recently. We do make every effort to group riders by experience and ability levels as well as ensuring all friends and family are able to enjoy the experience together. It is not always possible to group riders purely based on ability alone. Saying that, we encourage more experienced riders to talk to the guides hosting their tour to arrange opportunities for a canter or even free range riding where the riders ability levels meet the requirements to do so. We are sorry to hear that you felt poorly treated by a guide with another group. To give some context, our guides are very passionate about what they do and always have our horses' best interest at heart, sometimes they are required to speak quickly and loudly in order for instructions to be clear. We apologise if this came of in a negative light. I you would like to talk about your experience in more detail with a horse manager we would certainly welcome the call. Again, your feedback and quality of experience is important to us and the more we can understand about your unique situation the better we can assist to make the next time more enjoyable for you.

It was a lovely weekend. The family went for a horse ride and a kayak. The horse riding instructor was superb. She helped anyone who needed help, but also pushed us to get our horses to trot. For the one experienced rider, she facilitated her being able to canter with her horse. The scenery is beautiful and it was such a pleasant time.

The kayaking was equally enjoyable. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The kayaking itself was quite unlike any other kayaking I've done before (mostly on lakes), as the river is narrow and you feel totally embraced by nature.

My daughter also took part in laser skirmish and enjoyed it.

The cafe was handy for quick breakfasts and lunches.

The only negative of our stay was that the campground road became very muddy to the point where becoming bogged seemed a genuine risk. However, we happened to camp on a crazy wet weekend, so I'm not sure many dirt roads could have survived the weather unscathed.

Thank you so much for this lovely feedback from your recent visit to Glenworth Valley. By the sounds of it, your visit was jam packed with outdoor adventure fun. It was so great to see the valley full of smiling faces, children exploring and families connecting with nature over the weekend. We have a great team of guides, admin staff and food & beverage staff who love nothing more than to make your experience memorable. They will be thrilled to know they ticked the boxes for your visit. It does look like we are in for a wet summer and our maintenance team have been out and about early this week touching up the roads ready for our next guests. Again, it was great to see all of the smiling faces over the weekend, despite the weather. There is nothing a good sense of adventure (and barista coffee) can't fix right 😉. Thanks again for visiting, for sharing this feedback and we look forward to seeing you again. 🌳🐴😀
