Don't bother booking here even when you do they will cancel your booking if people just walk in before you! Called us 15min before the booked time to tell us. Absolutely disgraceful. Disappointed beyond words when your away for a weekend you don't have time for people's bad management. I couldn't care less if 5 extra people turned up with... More

We overall had a good experience renting bikes from the Adventure Centre. The trails around the area were pretty well maintained. The easy rider track was perfect for my wife and I kept the bike for an extra 2 hours and did some more intermediate and advanced trails. The prices were a little expensive in comparison with Franz Joseph area,... More

Highly reccommend these guys. They are professional, knowledgeable and cater for the group! We had a number of friends come up for a birthday who didn't know one another and this was a great way to ice break the day! We had a beautiful day with beautiful sights but I imagine that this adventure would be great rain, hail or... More

Went quad biking today and was so much fun!!The tour guide Eugene was fantastic. Started with a safety briefing (standard) was very good with making sure we knew what the hand signals meant and telling us what we were in for throughout the ride. The scenery was amazing I had never seen Hanmer from this view even though I have... More

Having never shot a shotgun, myself and 13 year old son decided to have a go and shop to the very helpful assistant in the shop. We were given all the information including what we could expect and how long it expect, which would be about 90 minutes.We decided to go and shoot straight away and was taken directly to... More

Awesome service, good value. Bike worth over 7g and only cost 30 Bucks hour to hire. I ran the batterie flat and they happily swapped it for another half way thru my ride. Bikes were turbo levos and great to ride.

We did the 2 1/2 hr Quad Bike tour, takes about 10 mins drive to get to quad bikes, then another 10 mins with safety briefing and being kitted out with jacket, pants, gumboots and helmets. The bikes are a lot of fun and the scenery is second to none, just stunning. Everyone of all ages (12 yrs and above)... More

Hired mountain bikes to go for a quick family ride. We followed their recommendation to go for the easy rider path (as we had a 6 year old using a bike without gears). The path was about an hour long so it fitted our needs perfectly. A must do activity when in Hanmer
