Skip­pers swap sea for land

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A GROUP of skip­pers from Pro­sail and Man­taray, joined by Aqua Dive staff, swapped the wa­ter for the bush and spent Satur­day af­ter­noon get­ting muddy on a mini 4WD tour at the Wings Whit­sun­day Adventure Park.

The tour ex­plored the Whit­sun­day hin­ter­land near Kelsey Creek on twop­er­son 4WD side by side bug­gies, on scenic trails me­an­der­ing through grass­lands, creek beds and open for­est, and climb­ing to a look­out for mag­nif­i­cent views of Proser­pine and the Con­way Range.

Skills were tested en route at the man-made chal­lenge area, cross­ing see-saw bridges and ne­go­ti­at­ing tyre mounds.

There were smiles all around as the tour fin­ished with the mud pit chal­lenge, a one kilo­me­tre cir­cuit of sweep­ing berms and mud pud­dles.

Tours de­part Air­lie Beach week day morn­ings and af­ter­noons. A driver’s li­cence is re­quired to drive the bug­gies, bring closed-in shoes, a change of clothes and a sense of fun.
