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.

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!

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.
