There are many guides available for activities in the area including water sports, climbing, skiing, hiking, artist tours, events, geology, mining, mushrooms, cannabis and plant medicines, garden tours, native history and lots more. There is a particularly valued native storyteller here that can also provide a walking history tour to a nearby aboriginal village site with a full scale replica of a kekuli (earth house). Please call ahead for recommendations on experiences. You don't need one to get here, but its good to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle for driving on logging roads. Roof and/or bike racks can also come in handy. The Vallican Whole Community Center has events nearby. Here is a video showing what the area looks like
