  • We encountered it by chance and have informed us in advance also not great. When we arrived (without 4 x 4 by the way, well done) we were surprised then about the many flying foxes :-) The two have told much to the animals, but also to the plants that we have encountered (including wild cherries, ginger, chilli and berries). The two flights through the rain forest was a unique experience and we would immediately make! Thank you very much for this awesome experience guys!

  • 10/10 would recommend to everyone! Breathtaking views and the lovely couple that runs the place are so nice and friendly. Went above and beyond to make our visit memorable! Definitely something you have to do if you're ever going out there.
  • Well organised venue, interesting tourist attraction. Could provide more value for your money but it is what you make of it.
  • great experience for myself and my daughter. knowledgeable owners and felt safe at all time.. Really should have more signs on how to get there from the highway
  • We went to Forest Flying for the experience of taking the zip line through the rainforest. We both loved it. There is a practice line and then two lines through different scenes. Also, the owners are very much in touch with the area and the land, pointing out different plants and even gave us some fresh tumeric that they grow, which we have really enjoyed. The first line goes through the rainforest and has a stream running below. The second line goes through more forest and you can see a colony of flying foxes up close. We were encouraged to take our time, which we did, using the brake to slow down or stop and look at different things. All in all, a great experience, and we also appreciated information on Finch Hatton Gorge, where we went afterwards for a lovely walk and swim at Araluen Cascade.
  • A lot of fun
