Watch for the potoroos (mini kangaroos) scurrying by your pathway, or the platypus and waterbirds swimming in the wetland ponds. Then take up the option to hop on to an electric bike for a gentle 5km glide along the quiet park road past the roos or hop back into the vehicle to drive to grassy fields encircled by the mountain scenery to say g’day to the kangaroos and their joeys.

Along the way your guide will reveal the secret lives of the animals and the rich history of the area. Call in to the nearby NASA deep space communication station searching for life out there in the universe.
