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.
