Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
We’ve had great customer feedback about the team at Riverside Adventures and what a fantastic time people have had with them. There are many ways to explore the area but we think a combination of walking, riding and kayaking will get the most of it all! Top Tip: The Rhubarb Cafe in Arapuni close to the trails and the Arapuni Swing Bridge is well worth seeking out before you head off on your bikes!
