This was the perfect Christmas present for my 5 year old niece and her family. So much so that I wasn't the only one that bought it, another aunty did too. Not to worry, she will share her other guide with a friend and the two families can have adventure together

Monica J.

I bought this guide as a birthday present after my son loved out Melbourne's West Guide. Such a lovely way for little friends to explore the great outdoors together!

We had such a great time following all the clues! Such a lovey thing to do as a family.

Kate M.

My family had such a great time exploring with Gumnut Trail's (adults too)! My daughter loved the illustrations and adventures - she hasn't stopped asking when we're going on another adventure. Definitely soon!

This is such a fantastic concept and just SO well executed! The guide is truly made for both kids and adults. The links make it so easy to follow along and my boys love the pictures and the exploring the trails like real explorers.�We purchased the North guide as it is local to us and it is so well thought out, I couldn't recommend highly enough!
