Happy Valley Adventures seem to be able to offer a wide range of adventures for folk with everything from Flying Foxes to horse riding. They certainly provide thrill seekers with a bit of a buzz that is for sure. Three of us went along and were kitted out with the safety kit, boots, coveralls helmets and were then given a... More

From the moment you drive into Happy Valley Adventures the good times start. The reception area and cafe are spotlessly clean and the the entire area has a really nice farm stay feel about it. All the staff are friendly and welcoming. We all did the quad bike and Skywire tour which was just brilliant with the Skywire being the... More

The flying fox was such a thrill! We reached 99kms! On the way up the staff stopped to show us some sights and inform us how to use the native plants. The view at the top was beautiful. Would do this ride again.

Amazing.. Scenery beautiful, Quads are quality and extremely comfortable with a lot of power. The two seater Quads are perfect for passengers with the most comfortable seating. Our 5 year old had the time of his life. The Sky Wire is worth every penny.. We have traveled all over the world and the experience is definitely in our top 5.... More

We had a great time doing this trip. Our guide Sam was fantastic and the track was easy enough for some of our group's first timers. The views are spectacular! Remember to take your sunnies as its very dusty and definitely do the sky wire!

Had a great morning out on the Bayview circuit Quadbike tour. Bikes are very easy to ride and extremely comfortable for both drivers and passengers. Trails are good fun with a variety of terrains and I found them to be a lot of fun and not too challenging for a new rider. Guides were great, down-to-earth, easy to talk to... More
