authentic local inspiring
We are a family owned, local business run by Andrew and Alison from our rural property in beautiful Gippsland. We began our business with a clear mission in mind. We wanted to provide our guests with an authentic, local and inspiring experience. We work with selected local businesses to bring you fresh Gippsland produce prepared by passionate local people doing amazing things in the local food and wine space. We try not to visit wildlife parks or souvenir shops on our tours, rather we try to let you seek to find wildlife in the wild and meet local people. We want to provide you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural environment adopting the pace of nature along the way.
