We have two paintball fields, one set in a gully of native bush and the other on a flat field. We also have a paintball alley for those that would prefer target practice.
Paintball is a sport in which players eliminate opponents by hitting them with pellets containing paint (paintballs), propelled from CO2 or compressed-gas powered paintball gun. It is fun, fast paced action.
The game that we usually play is capture the flag were two opposing teams are seeking to capture their opponents flag and return it to their starting position (base).
Paintball is $40 per person, for this you get 200 paintballs. A game lasts till all ammo runs out; extra ammo is $10 per 50 paintballs. You need suitable footwear and overalls are supplied at $5 each if needed. There is a maximum of 10 people per game.

Our off-road karts are excellent for a different type of karting thrill, leaving you with an adrenaline rush and wanting more. Off-road Karts are build much more sturdier than regular karts, so its a completely different experience that everyone will love young to old.
The karts are $45 per person and include 2 warm up laps and 1 farm tour, the ultimate bush track adventure maneuvering through our beautiful native bush track.
Drivers license is essential.Overalls are supplied at $5 each if needed.Our karts have a cc rating of 150; the farm tour is approximately 15 minutes long.
