We were a group of two dads and two boys 9 years old. This was one of the best experiences for the kids to learn all about quad bikes and safety. The business owner guided us on the introductory tour and honestly it felt like we cover 20k's through lots of different terrains. We stopped regularly to check out the... More

The 1.5 hour tour was fantastic! The two that were guiding us were really friendly, really helpful and totally forgiving when you drive off the track and into a bush! (As long as you don't. damage the bike) Got to see some wildlife too which was cool, and you drive at your own pace whether that be fast or slow... More

We took our 6 grandchildren to KI for an activity week in the July school holidays. The 2 hour quad bike tour with Tim was the highlight of the trip. The 5 boys ranging in age from 12 to 17 years and our 1 grand-daughter aged 13 all thoroughly enjoyed it; the older boys naturally wanting more. Sand-boarding was also... More

We tried all three activities advertised: quad bike, sandboarding, kayaking. Best out of the three was definitely the quad bike tour where we spot some KI kangaroos, koalas and wallabies. I would say go for the more extreme tours if you are adventurous as the introductory tour usually included children and are very slow in pace. We did sandboarding just... More

Had a great family intro tour with Tim. 2 adults, and two boys, 8 and 11. All enjoyed the bikes, scenery and animals. Great emphasis on safety, felt paramount, not like at some places we have been. Thoroughly recommend!

We had an enjoyable experience and our guide Brodie was professional and informative. Children really enjoyed it, and even thought quite on the trip could not stop talking about it when we left. Great way to see the island off the road.

We were visiting Kangaroo Island for the weekend and purchased the couples extreme pack at KI Outdoor Action, it was definitely the best decision we made! The quad biking was amazing, not only did we get the tour to ourselves but we got to see kangaroos and koalas as well as covering a variety of terrain. Our guide Brodie was... More

It was the first quad bike experience for my family including my 8 year old son and 65+ father. We signed up for the 1.5h package which consisted of 0.5h of safety briefing and practice runs, and 1h of biking across different types of terrains. Although we arrived 1h late, we didn't have any issues. On the ride, Acacia was... More

All four of us enjoyed this private upgrade tour, although wet at a times it was a fun day having never ridden a quad bike we all enjoyed the 2 hour tour. Will certainly be back to do it again when we visit KI next time.

My husband and son rented sand boards, while I chose to follow along and watch. You pay for the first hour, and the second hour is free. I can't imagine who has the fortitude to use the second hour, though. It's a bit of a hike to get to the dunes, and climbing to the top of the dune in... More
