Brendan arranged a 3-hr tour for a group of 28 friends in their 70's on a Sat morning He was so pleasant & easy to deal with, the itinerary was just right, with a stop at Lavendula for morning tea Our guide Beverly was excellent We hope he will use our tour as a template for extensions to his services
Many thanks, Brendan!

Thanks David.
A bus tour was a new venture, so I'm very glad that your companions enjoyed it and that the itinerary worked well.

Cheers.

Nice choice of walks available. 7km suited my partner and I perfectly. Brendan was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and thorough about his product which was great to see. Recommend highly.

Thanks for your warm review Jacinda. The Blowhole walk is one of the lesser used walk, but it is just the right season for it now.
Hope to see you both for another walk in the near future.

I recently participated in a group walk of 16 Ladies - (from 17 - 75 ), and it was the best day! Brendan is an expert guide who really knows a lot about the history of the area and to be around such local passion was really inspiring. Getting off the beaten track was stunningly beautiful, and the track we walked had something for everyone. I highly recommend it! Everyone had a great time.

We met Brendan who was a very friendly chap - he found a walk which included opportunities for seeing wildlife (this was what we wanted). We did the 11km Bullarto trail which has 4 different sections. It was an easy walk with a couple of uphill parts. The Wombat State forest was very quiet and we didn't come across another person the whole time. Saw plenty of kangaroos and a very tame wallaby. The GPS was easy and fun to follow but there were distinct paths anyway which meant you didn't have to look at the GPS the whole time. Brendan really cared about our safety and wanted us to have the best time possible. I would definitely recommend the secret forest walks if you are looking for a sense of (safe) adventure!
