The little pedal cars hold two adults + two kids in the back (complete with seat belts). If you get tired the 4-wheel track car (guide driven) will give you a push. That was great because I'm primarily a photographer and could film and photograph...More

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.

We went to mt.field for a picnic and noticed that Railtrack riders had an adventure here. It was lots of fun: the quad bike was there to keep you going, pushing enough to keep it challenging but still enjoyable.

What a fantastic use of old railroad tracks. While it is hard going pedaling for the kids they had a great time, and the bike following us helped out when our legs got tired from pedaling. The walk halfway through was a nice short break....More
