What a fabulous day tour! We were met promptly by our tour guide, Andy, who is very knowledgeable and caring about wildlife and the environment. Magnificent views from a lookout, wild bird feeding and a delicious lunch and bubbles at a vineyard, life doesn’t get much better! Book this tour!!!

Hiking time was not enough

Unfortunate rainy day. Hiking in the National Park was too short, for only 20 or 30 minutes. Missed ladder climbing. We spend a couple of hours in O'Reilly's Farm restaurant. Bird feeding was interesting.

Dear Naoko, Thank you for your review. The walk through the rainforest is a short (30min) and easy walk. Can you please provide us with more details about the ladder climbing at [email protected] and the reason why you missed it? Sorry to read the tour did not meet your expectation and I am looking forward to hearing from you very soon to discuss your experience further. Kind regards, Vaih Pater | Reservation Manager
