Overview

The one and only way to experience Hogsback - Guided Mountain Bike Tours, Abseiling and Archery. Mountain Biking: Our scenic bike tour takes you past numerous waterfalls to hidden viewpoints off the beaten track. The guide's local knowledge will entertain you with interesting facts about the area while you take in the breathtaking views. Enjoy a refreshing swim in a natural jacuzzi and a picnic at Robinson Dam. Meander through pine plantations along the old jeep tracks, then enter the indigenous forests where you'll face some single track madness. Abseiling: Abseil down a 35m waterfall into the indigenous forests below - an exhilarating alternative to reaching the bottom of the famous Madonna & Child Waterfall. Archery: Looking for something safe, easy and fun for the whole family, then try your hand at the age old tradition of Archery.

It certainly does get the adrenalin going. Thanks for the review. Next time, be sure to book the combo tour which will highlight the history, fauna and flora of Hogsback by bicycle and include the adrenalin packed abseil. All the best Candy and Neels

Thanks for your review, Shan. Next time you visit us, be sure to join us on the combo tour for a shorter bike tour, a thrilling abseil down the waterfall and an enchanting hike through the ancient forests of Hogsback. Candy and Neels

Great experience, guide inspired confidence, and we never felt unsafe. Would have liked to be able to "bounce", however, but the spray from the fall made it too slippery for that.More
