Ondrea was an amazing guide. We spotted several platypus and was great way to spend a morning, freshly brewed coffee was a bonus.

It's an early start and a cautious, sometimes steep descent down to the beautiful water location, but Ondrea is a skillful and relaxed guide and we always knew we were in for a spectacular morning. The platypus are shy and elusive creatures, but we managed...More

Dear Ondrea, thanks so much for taking us up the lighthouse in Currie. The weather was wild (which only added to our enjoyment) and the view was amazing. Great building, great history, great place. Pam and Trevor, August 2016
