Well run, great condition equipment and safety lead to fun experiences for us as a couple and 2 x teen boys.

      Great service, great ride
      With a few hours to spare I turned up here unannounced and within minutes was off on a 2 hour bike ride with a map, great advice and directions to the best downhill trails in the forest to suit my ability. The bikes were new and in great condition, and I had a great time riding the intermediate single tracks around Conical Hill. If you’re not into climbing mountains and navigating narrow trails and jumps, the gentler forest trails are simply gorgeous, mostly flat and wide, and well worth exploring for an hour or two. For $49 for 2 hours this was a fantastic experience.

      ATV tour is amazing!
      Hunter and Josh were amazing guides on the 2 hour ATV tour. They took us to some amazing viewpoints and through creeks and took lots of photos of the fun we had. They were very helpful and nice. I highly recommend this tour and can’t wait to come back for more.

      Exciting
      Brilliant quadbike experience! The mountain track takes you through mud puddles, creeks and fields, heading to the top where you have stunning views! Our instructor, Hunter, was fab! Explained each section of the track to us and explained how we would need to adjust our bikes accordingly. They also take pictures of you as you go round and email them to you at the end at no extra charge which we thought was really good! Thanks again for a great morning! 👍

      Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. Ross was able to shuttle us by special request, and we only booked the night before. Recommended! Great service at a great price. Call them for your Hanmer shuttle needs

      BEST QUAD BIKING EXPERIENCE IN HANMER SPRINGS!!!
      This is one of the best quad biking experience we had with great mountain track with muddle pools and crossing creeks and reaching to the top of mountain with spectacular views. This quad biking is not for the faint hearted and thanks to Pete to provide a great tour and taking pics along the route and providing that to their customers at no extra cost. Remember this is hanmer adventure quad bike and a MUST TRY activity.

      Awesome adventure
      We went as a family group of adults, young adults and two 9 year olds. Our group had a blast! It was so much fun. Pete and Mat were awesome, teaching us how to use the Quad bikes, giving us tips on certain parts of the track and also general knowledge and history of the area. The 2 younger kids went in the buggy and had heaps of fun. Highly recommend and would love to do it again.

      Poor bike maintenance and rude staff
      We rented a bike from here. The bike was in very bad condition and while we were on a trail the chain broke. The components of the bike were very poorly maintained with heaps of muck and dirt just stuck to it. When we returned the bike the staff (an old man) was extremely rude and blaming us for the problem. He raised his voice and refused to give us a refund. Personally, I wouldn't rent a bike from them again!!!

    This was a fantastic experience for kids, pre-teen and the adult! The 7&10 year olds loved the ATV
    and the 12 year old had her first experience on a quad bike and thrived, doing the whole track in the wet. Even managed to cover the boss in mud (head to toe) as he helped her out of a bog. It was a great experience for all, company was really flexible and the guide Matt was super engaging. Highly recommend. Thanks HT!

    Totally awesome 2.5 hrs with our guide Peter, through swollen rivers,fabulous farm trails, big hill climbs and amazing views of the valley. I'm sure the rain made the trails even more fun..
    Loved that Hanmer Adventure Centre provided all the wet weather gear and paid attention to safety with good quality helmets and the chance to practice how to use a guad bike before heading on to such mixed terrain. Thanks team, you made our experience better than we could have imagined.

    We took our 12 year old and 9 year old quad biking for the first time. Peter was amazing and incredibly patient with our 9 year old son who definitely didn’t want to go but not long into the ride was laughing and smiling and asking when we could go again. It was a great family adventure! Thanks Peter

    Absolutely brilliant. We all loved it. Being a family of mostly first time riders, Peter was a fantastic guide, giving the perfect amount of instruction. Our 10 year old loved being on the back of Peter's bike and he took the time to include him in everything. Our 13 year old took to it like a pro despite a few nerves, which were quickly allayed by Peter. Would 100 % recommend.

    We went out with Peter with our 12yr old and 9 yr old and had a brilliant time. He pitched the experience at exactly the right level and our 9 yr old (who didn’t really want to go because she couldn’t drive) came back with the biggest grin on her face. Both kids rated it 11/10. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much.

    We had the amazing experience of quad biking with Peter as a tour guide. He was very professional, provided detailed and simple instructions and safety guidelines. As a first time quad biker for recreation it was an engaging and thrilling ride. 1.5 hours was enough time I believed but the extra further time did push our limits in a good way and made it more fun too! Ask for Peter as a guide as he made the quad biking really interesting, with quick facts about the nature, history and landscape. Thank you so much Peter and Mindy (I believe), who were so lovely and friendly and all round great people to meet today.

    We highly recommend this activity. We are a family of 4, 2 adults, 16 year old, 12 year old and all rode the bikes. Pete was an amazing guide and made the whole thing so much fun. It had rained the day before so that added to the fun.
    We were given waders, and two waterproof coats which meant we came away completely dry with our shoes in tact..
    Honestly can't believe we've never done this experience in all our years of visiting Hanmer!!

    Thanks guys for a great morning!
