What You Can Expect
Take a break from the gentle ride to get up close and personal with Australia’s native creatures that live in the conservation area. Greet gentle wallabies, feed emus and maybe even pat a koala. Wander through the park, admiring other wildlife rarely found outside Australia, before relaxing for early morning tea. Hop back on your bike to traverse trails and spot more of the creatures that call the conservation park home.
The downhill ride continues through Chambers Gully, an offshoot of Waterfall Gully that houses old ruins, springs and many koalas snoozing high in the trees. Experience more of the breathtaking views during your descent through beautiful natural surroundings, taking in the sight of the city from high above it. Finish your journey through the bushland on a path that leads you into Adelaide’s quiet roads and suburbs. After experiencing a different view of the city pedaling through South Australia’s capital, you’re transported back to your hotel.
Absolutely perfect! It was a lovely day with a lovely view. Our guide, Matt, was in no hurry to get us down the 'mountain'. We took our time feeding the kangaroos and admiring the teeth of the Tasmanian devil. Matt also gave us lots of warning on the 'tricky' bits of the trail which, mostly, weren't all that tricky. The bikes were in excellent shape, with good braking and a lot of traction. If you're after a challenging ride, this isn't for you. But for the traveler just wanting to get out and enjoy the scenery, it's perfect!
It was a highlight to my trip.
The guide is really good, stopping at critical points to guide you to the way and even though I've never done mountain bike before it was good fun. Hard enough to challenge myself.
There is a walk in the park. We have some breakfast and bike again. Highly recommended
Excellent, Great fun...and very well guided by Ian.
We opted not to visit the actual wildlife park, except for coffee and muffins before heading down the mountain, spotting and photographing Koalas in the trees and then through the back roads and cycle tracks to the city.
Great half day trip, picked up from hotel, top guide, good bikes, and great value. Highly recommended, even if you haven't been mountain biking before.
Brilliant but quite scary at the start if, like me, you haven't been on a bike for many years. Ian was fantastic, very patient and helpful. The stop at the wildlife park was great, petting a koala and feeding the Kangaroos. Also coffee and cake which was very welcome. Thoroughly enjoyable and great value.
This tour was one of the highlights to our trip to Australia. Ian, our guide, was well organized and guided us down the trail expertly. It is a great way to see Cleland Park and the views on the descent were spectacular. Ian stopped several times to point out Koalas in the trees and the Magpies were racing us down the hill. It was nice to have a tour that involved exercise as well as seeing some beautiful scenery. Thanks Ian for making our trip to Australia really special.
Great tour! Guide was friendly and knowledgeable and very helpful with using the bikes. Trail through the bush of the park was easy to ride and we saw koalas and other animals in the wild.
Great way to spend a morning in Adelaide. Really enjoyed it. Our guide was really good and looked after us fantastically
Good, outdoor and enjoyable experience. Not a lot of things for active teenagers to do in Adelaide but this was a good one - my son enjoyed it. Tour operator is a great guy.
A good way to see a part of Adelaide you wouldn't normally see. Biking on the trails was good fun and you don't need to be a pro mountain biker to do it. Cleland Park was good but seeing koala's in the wild was a bit special. Overall we were very pleased to have done the tour.
