We went for a 1.5 hours Quad bike ride and it was awesome. First I wanna say that I was upset when I did the booking online for 4 people and when you see a price of $120 you expect a flat price but when you pay, separate you have to pay helmet hire and administration fee. It was more than $50 extra and it is a lot for me. It is better if you offer a flat price that include the helmet hire and no way that any bank charge 10% for a transaction no even in international transactions. If you said $130 - $140 flat price I am happy to pay.Second and most important Gen was our guide and he made us forget the price. He really make sure we were safe, we had fun and enjoy the scenic ride and the track time.Also I would say the staff in general were absolutely friendly and willing to give the best service.Thank you for the experience.

Abseiling was a great and wonderful experience.Sarah would be the best instructor to have. She was clear and crisp on the instructions. Also a very friendly and energetic person. The facility is very safe and carefully built. All harnesses, helmets and ropes are very well maintained. Great choice for beginners. I would recommend this experience to anyone visiting the Valley.Date of experience- June 2023

We love Glenworth Valley for camping, have been twice, this year and last for camping and have had the best time. The staff are very kind and the environment is beautiful! The only issue we had is the amenities, both years. This time we had no hot water and no lights in bathroom (blue gum paddock) the entire time we were there. We asked twice and were told if not enough people then the generator is not turned on. This is kinda disappointing as we paid $300 for 5 nights and expected a wee splash of hot water and maybe a light at night. Apart from that it's is a totally amazing place!!

We did the quad bike trail and it was amazing. Jordy our guide was incredibly thorough taking us through the safety drills, giving us confidence to take on the track. We wanted more of a scenic tour and he was happy to take us separately on an extended tour rather than to just go mindlessly around the race course. The drive was exhilarating and the bush tracks were so pretty. It was a fabulous bucket list experience. Totally recommend it !
