Amazing half day trip!
This was an amazing trip! My partner and I got a buggy and both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Going off-road the views were amazing and the stops were beautiful locations that we probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise. The BBQ lunch was excellent and the whole trip was a lot of fun. As other people have recommended, a mask and sunglasses/goggles would definitely be handy as it does get very dusty, so wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty! Great day out, would thoroughly recommend.
