WHAT WE DO
Waitpinga Farm is the home of Kev and Mary Pearce and their family. The Pearce family have lived on the 400 acre property since 1856 and are currently 6th generation farmers. The property is mainly used for sheep and wool production and has a heritage listed shearing shed.
What we have to offer
We strive to give everyone a chance to do something they have never done before and to enjoy themselves as much as they can in a safe environment.
We offer a guided quadbike farm tour with a qualified tour guide through 400 acres of beautiful farming country with views of the ocean, local farm animals and possible sightings of native animals. Ride our provided quadbikes through grassy hills and plains and creek crossings.
Feel at ease riding to your own ability with the helping hand of our guides.
All our guides are experienced and qualified and are willing to help you where ever possible.
The Practice Track is the first stop on the tour to make sure you understand how to control your quad bike. Once riders and guides are confident with the progress, its out to explore the farm!
No experience is necessary and we encourage everyone to have a go!
All we recommend you to bring is a camera!
