This was such a great experience! Cruising thru bushland and getting a sense of what the first explorers of this area had to deal with as they opened up this bushland. This is a must do tourist spot in the Derwent Valley.

Good fun, great way to see the area and the native Chris knows the track well and will give you a helping hand just when it's needed. Bucket list worthy.
