Did the one day 'She Went Wild' navigation course and loved it. Our instructor Brian was extremely knowledgeable and he had us happily navigating off track for a good portion of the day.

We got the Abseiling Day experience. Wasn't expecting it to be this good. The experience builds up during the day and the final abseil was a 50 meter cliff! Wow. Would definitely recommend this. Nice and friendly staff.

As first timers from California, we were very impressed with Reese, our guide, and the views. Reese was a patient and encouraging teacher. This was the favorite activity of our trip and we hope to do it again very soon. Highly recommend!

We had a great time, our guides were really friendly and helpful The only downside we had was that we couldn't take any photos p Our guides told us not to take phones as we would not be returning to the office to drop them off before going canyoning but we ended up going back there to pick up lunch....

Hi Sally, Thanks for your review & suggestions. Typically, we don't return to the office until the end of the day- And the safest place for any of your valuables is in the lockers at our office. We never recommend taking anything into the field that you have a spiritual, emotional or financial attachment to- Canyons especially are a very... More

I am a relative newcomer to bush walking, but enthusiastic and keen to expand my skills. This course was fantastic. Our guide / instructor was patient and helpful - and willing to share his knowledge and experience. And the sandwiches at lunchtime were delicious!
