*** Please note 4-WD will be required to reach the trial if the field road is still wet – we can provide a shuttle up the hill or it’s a refreshing walk! 

*** If you are not able to make the tour and are interested in viewing the plots at another date/time, please contact us to make arrangements to do so.  Field access is by permission only outside of tour times.
