A rugged outdoor adventure - muddy good fun!

Plow through rivers, mud, forest, and rocks on a 2-hour quad biking & buggy adventure through the scenic alpine backyard of Hanmer Springs.

Our experienced guides will lead you on a fun and safe quad biking and buggy trip suitable for ages 6 and above. Our fleet of 4-wheel drive vehicles are easy to get the hang of, and after training on our dedicated practice track you’ll be away in no time. Choose to navigate the trail on a single-seat quad bike (a minimum age of 16 years applies) or opt for our 2-seat buggies which are perfect for families and groups, accommodating an adult driver and passengers from 6 years.

Grab your gumboots and enjoy a muddy 4-wheel outdoor adventure!
