We got a deal through Grabone to try and do something different. I had to overcome my fear of heights - but it was exhilarating as it was scary! Ben was an excellent guide and even took some photos for us on the Sky Wire. The views from the top were awesome! Overall, this was a totally amazing experience. Next... More

What a great afternoon at "Happy Valley" adventures. $135 for a 2 n half hour trip around the hillside was a steal! Plus $50 for the sky wire ride across the valley which was outstanding fun. Highly recommended & would not hesitate to use again if we are that way again. Great staff & very professional. 10/10 all day long.

Went on the Zipwire with hubby and 72yr old mum. It was fabulous! We were taken up to the zipwire, strapped in and let go.....such a rush. It was especially good because we could all experience it together. Highly recommend. Also thanks to Ben for the lunch-time recommendations!

My husband and I visited today and had so much fun! Our guide was so welcoming and friendly. The sky wire was exhilarating and the quad biking was very fun! Would definitely return.

Exciting.......well once you get up there and actually get on. Large group went up and we waited for our turn. Watching the reactions of the other groups was entertaining in itself. You actually get padlocked in......no escaping. Backwards was best, awesome view from above, seeing the natural forest underneath. Just enjoy the view.

Started out just with the Bayview quad bike tour with Tony, he then talked us into doing the Skywire and we were not disappointed! Had a really great day and we feel it was well worth the money especially since we were the only ones in the group. Tony was instructive, and explained a lot about the operation they have... More

Friendly staff and good vibes. Unhurried and relaxed atmosphere. The Skywire was a real adrenalin rush. Initially hesitant to do it (fear of heights) but encouraged to do so by the staff I did it and was glad I did. Highly recommended.
