A fantastic run tour of shepherds hill conservation park at night. Led by Ian from escapegoats and Sean a national parks ranger. Ian's expertise and enthusiasm made for a fantastic experience. Highly recommend.

This was a great way to see some of the wineries in the McLaren... Definitely recommend this if you like wine tasting but want something different from being driven in a van all day.

No, sorry, none of our tours would be suitable for having a toddler on the back, they are too tough trails. I would not ride with my daughter on the back on our tours.
