Kids (and Mum) really enjoyed the treasure hunt. A terrific way to enjoy the beautiful surrounds of Lake Daylesford with the added attraction of the hunt to keep the kids engaged.

It was a wonderful experience. Totally worth going with friends or family for long walks. There’s a lake halfway which is beautiful. Totally worth it. Brendan helped us with all the equipments and information required.
