We selected the quad bike and flying fox combo and had a beat time. My wife and I have no quad biking experience, but not an issue for our guide. After a briefing and a few laps of the practice track, we were off on an adventure. On farm and forestry tracks we climbed up a hill and had amazing... More

Due to rain I could only do the quad and not the skywire. Staff was nice however I found the track too easy. If you are a little bIt experienced this track might be boring. Biggest fun were the waterholes...

We had a wonderful time Quad Biking and on the Flying Fox. My highlight was biking through the farm, along the stream then through some large puddles to the adventure track. The other two loved the Flying Fox the most. It was an easy drive out from Nelson. Our guild was great fun.

Great views and we recommend to everyone! We will be back again, and we... More

Thanks for an exhilarating experience! Even tho it was a low cloud low visibility day. The skywire was a very fun experience. The host was really informative and shared knowledge of the special features on the farm. We thought it was good value fun and would recommend to anyone looking for some safe yet challenging adventures.

This is a must-do in Nelson. Great value for money and an exciting and thrilling attraction. The owners are SO lovely and the drive up to the flying fox was great and informative. The flying fox itself was AMAZING. 10/10
