    My 6 year old grandson was so excited to dig for thunder eggs. The owner shared his knowledge of stones and listened patiently as my "expert" grandson discussed all types of gemstones and fossils with...  more »

    Had a good 1:30hr horse ride on Bert. He's an amazing horse and did what I asked of him when directed. The guide was very nice. It's good when you meet one that's not afraid to talk. The only letdown was the track. I feel there could be less rocks. An have a look out point also a ride beside a river. An make it more scenic. Money well spent I'm sure the tracks will get better with time

    Perfect place for the whole family. For our family of 6, our childrens ages ranging from 1 to 7 all thoroughly enjoyed a pony ride and were amazed with the mining of the eggs! We managed to find a huge egg and were so happy to have it cut opened to reveal the beauty of the inside! Highly recommend anyone to spend the day or camp for the weekend as the activities are suitable for all ages 😊 we will be going back in the near future

    Lovely bush setting, creek is really nice. Campsites are quite small if you are a larger group or used to spreading out. Facilities were maintained well and the staff are friendly and responsive.

    Was a great experience. We were thinking it would only take an hour or so but time flew by as we were having so much fun 3 hours later we had finished all courses. Would recommend taking a water bottle with you. 👍
