This a great family location for the adventurous kids that love to bike ride. For me the best event is for the girls with a fun obstacle course in the aid of raising funds for Cancer that takes place twice a year.

You don’t want to cycle? Then don’t. Beautiful walks or just pack a picnic and a book and spend the day chillaxing whilst the kids work off some energy whilst having good safe fun. Get away from electronics for a day.

If you are into Cycling, Trail Running, or just a wall in the bush. This is the spot, well maintained trials in shady stunning surroundings. Great restaurant with huge lawns, perfect for a picnic. Not to mention a 1st class BMX track.
