We did a climbing and abseiling trip with Leif and it was awesome. He really knew his stuff so we felt really safe and in good hands. He was a great laugh to spend the morning with too. Would definitely recommend this company. They also had some really great hiking recommendations!!!

Amazing time was spent with Laef, our guide for the morning. He made the morning really relaxed and chill... Before making us abseil of the edge of a cliff. Also managed to scale a 25m rock wall, which I'd never thought I would be able to do. But I managed to make it to the top, with a lot of advice and encouragement from Laef, as he made it such a safe environment to be in. Would happily do it again #Crocsforthewin

Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad Leif 'made you' abseil of the edge of a cliff! haha Awesome job making it to the top - not everyone does. We look forward to seeing you again soon! #crocshavetheirplace #inthecupboard

Fantastic little shop that stocks all the essentials for hikers of all levels, with a highly knowledgeable staff that offered us great insights and advice about the many trail systems around Halls Gap.

We took off shortly before sunrise for a hike to Boronia Peak lookout - a moderate 90 minute hike with an amazing and rewarding experience at the summit, as the sun rose over the valley and filled it with liquid gold below us. Unforgettable.

Leif was an absolutely fantastic guide for a canoeing excursion across Lake Bellfield!! He was so informative, energetic, educational and responsive to all of our requests & questions - he made the entire experience an absolute joy - we can't recommend him enough!

We bought some hiking/ walking poles from this shop today. The shop attendant, Jess, was very friendly, very helpful and knowledgeable. We got great service. Thank you, we are very happy with the purchase.
