Thank you for taking the time review (with 5 stars!!) and giving us your feedback. The the Crabs and Yabbies tour is great fun for the whole family to get involved in, and with Kahli as your guide for the day, she definitely is a gem and she does know a lot about the marine life that inhabit our river! We also appreciate your feed back on the salad, your review was one of the topics we cover in our team meeting, and your suggestion has been taken on board and we have changed it, so thank you for your input! Enjoy the rest of your holiday!
