After lunch we will take a fire break trail back to the carpark (avoiding scaling the mountains a second time) for a more relaxed afternoon. This walk has a good amount of challenge but is not beyond most beginners. Give us a call if you have any concerns.

What people have said

I have no complaints; only praise! The walk was wonderful. You obviously put a lot of effort into the organisation of these walks and that is why everything is so good. Morning tea especially!! I unreservedly recommend these outings to people who love to ‘escape’ to peace and beauty for a few hours.
