They were so friendly and accomodating. Helped me out with my hot spring passes and upgraded me to a beach ride when I wanted to change to the morning session. Was absolutely amazing experience!

The bush trail was not exciting compared to the one we went to in Perth. Route of the trail is so narrow and not on the farm which we had thought. Should expand this area to make it more interesting and fun.

A great lunch, interesting little tapas and great wine. Sitting outdoors in the sun and grazing is a great experience. Will be back.
