Everyone will find something to suit. If you want an adrenaline rush go Bungy Jumping, Jet boating or take a ride in a Helicopter Flight or an Argo (an eight wheel drive, all terrain amphibious craft). Go Mountain Biking, Heliskiing, or 4 wheel motorbiking.

Golf is another option on a beautiful but challenging course located near to the village, or chose from one of the Mini Golf courses in the town. Visit a local pottery, craft shop or the museum. Take a drive into the forest, or explore the Clarence Valley and Lake Tennyson.
