Brendan provided a great team building activity. Our activity included mineral spring tasting and a geocaching element to find the safe after locating marker posts and solving clues. Brendan was also very flexible in tailoring the activity to suit the needs and objective as well as factors and conditions on the day i.e the sun and heat! Brendan was also knowledgeable about the history of the area and provided great insights. Overall I would highly recommend Brendan's activity offerings!

Did the GPS Treasure Hunt in December 2017 with a group of about 20 and loved it! Had people of ages from 6 - 55 and everybody had a great time. The kids got to learn about the lake and had lots of fun. Brendan was super friendly and helpful and we would love to come back. Definitely recommend for a lovely day out at Lake Daylesford!

Brendan introduced us with great confidence to the treasure hunt and we had a ball.
Dalesford is so pretty and the lake is its crown.

Well organised, well prepared, and just perfect. Brendan is a gem, and I couldn’t fault anything. Want to come back to do one in winter!

Thank you for your kind comments Ingrid.
I'm always glad to see solo walkers enjoy and feel confident in the forest.
The Bullarto Walk under blue skys is truly lovely.

My partner and I stayed in Daylesford for a night and we wanted to do something a bit different. Our hotel had a leaflet of things to do. We saw secret forest walks and called Brendan straight away, he helped us with our questions and booked us in for the next morning. He was lovely and very helpful and explained everything to us perfectly so we'd be ready for our walk. We did the Bullarto Walk, amazing walk, beautiful scenery, peaceful and relaxing. We stopped and had lunch at the reservoir, layed out the picnic rug and enjoyed every minute. We did the short walk but perfect for us before travelling back to the mornington peninsula. I would highly recommend doing one of the secret walks, its great for everyone. Will definitely be doing it again. Thank you so much Brendan.
