We did the skywire and loved it. The best part is definitely going backwards as it doesn't feel very fast on the way out. It's lovely just to be swinging out across the valley. Loved the woollen animal hats provided to help keep warm (it...More

We did the Skywire and horsetrek activities. Definitely want to come back and do them again and more. Staff were friendly and chatty along the way. Recommend this to everyone.

15 minute steep drive up. Wonderful views from the cabin. Sky wire ride itself was good, you are given coats and beanies as it does get really cold! Once at the end there is a pause and you get zipped backwards - which seems faster....More

Go early - so much to do! Only had time for the flying fox but would have loved some of the other adventures that are on offer in such spectacular surroundings. Staff very helpful!

Thanks for your review. The skywire is fantastic to join in with other activities that we offer but be sure to book ahead to secure your spot.

All of us has great fun on the quad bikes and "zip" line. Food is excellent too. Price very reasonable.

Really enjoyed this. Took about an hour in all, and we all loved it. It's a big thrill, but I can't see why anyone couldn't do it, young and old. Think 'out of control chair lift' but with better seats and straps and you've got...More
