Thanks for a beautiful afternoon that was made so easy. Like so many say, Trent is a star and shares so much fantastic information and lots of great stories. The Gold Coast is so much more than the beaches and coastline. To see this area just after recent rains when it is lush and green, plus all the views is magical. Don't miss this spectacular area and if you're a Queensland local, jump on to see it for yourself without having to navigate and drive. So good!

A fun night tour with sighting of glow worms and other wild lives. My child enjoy the 4WD ride in a comfortable vehicle a lot. The trap-door spider shut its door upon our torch shone on it as if saying “hey you’re not invited to my house” was very interesting. Tour guide has been professional, caring and funny. Highly recommend.

Trent was an excellent tour guide wth a tonne of knowledge about Springbook and surrounds, as well as Indigenous culture and lots of information about the plants and animals native to the area. He grew up here and it was evident how much he loves his own backyard, adding lots of personal stories about growing up exploring, hiking, swimming and camping in this beautiful part of the world. Our tour was small, which made asking questions easy. A snack and a drink was provided about halfway through the trip, the walks were easy (suitable for all ages and abilities), the views to the coast and Bryon Bay and even a wee glimpse of Brisbane were spectacular. A great trip away from the high rise of the Gold Coast and into the Australian bush. Highly recommended and very enjoyable.
