Hi Caitlin. Thanks for your wonderful review. And good on you for going solo. I personally find walking solo in the forest a very rich experience. For me, there is no better time or space for thinking and imagining. It would be great to see...More

Thankyou Shane and Gay. It was great that you christened the 'Elements Trek'. A 15 km hike through the forest would normally tire anyone, yet looked as though you had just walked around the block! Well done.

Hi Erika and Daniel. Thank you very much for your great review. I'm working on developing a few more 'trek' walks (10km plus), so there will be some fresh challenges for you for your next visit. All the best. Brendan
