"Amazing experience, awesome people. I had the best time!! "
"It was incredible! Wallaby Ranch is a wonderful getaway with friendly, accommodating staff, and a perfect setting to experience hang gliding. A little more signage needed at the street entrance."
"It was an awesome experience! Great staff, very personable and experienced. They have been doing it since 1991. Beautiful property, over 500 acres. My daughter loved her hangliding experience. It was a birthday surprise and she had no clue she was going to hanglide that morning. I just drove her to the ranch, and as we drove in, she still had no idea what her gift was. Malcolm greeted us at our car, and I told him she has no clue why we are here. He laughed, and said, oh she is going to love this!"
