Innovative quad bike tours

We like the new eco-friendly tour concept at Eco Adventures in Margaret River, where you can ride quiet, comfy, non-emission (and non-smelly!) electric quad bikes while exploring the forest and coastal trails surrounding Margaret River. Unlike noisier fuel bikes, these are less likely to scare away the wildlife.

The tour guides will look after you plus there’s an iPad mini on board each vehicle with customised information about your tour. What a great way to experience Boranup Forest and the trails around Hamelin Bay!

The bikes are said to be the only ones of their kind, having been purpose built for this local business. The wide, low inflation tyres are load-spreading and there’s said to be a clever design innovation that limits damaging “wheel spin” yet boosts traction.

You don’t need a bike licence to drive one, just a driver’s licence, and passengers can be as young as six years of age.
