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.

All Riders must be 16 years of age but anyone 5 years and up can be a passenger. We have limited passenger bikes and these get sold out quickly.
