Unique activities hosted by local experts vetted for quality

  • Meet and Draw a llama
    Learn to draw a llama. This activity suits all drawing levels. We will be drawing together step by step, at your level. You will meet Cadbury the amazing llama. Practise your observational skills to notice what makes llamas unique. See you he moves, how he eats. Meet his best friends as we take a tour of his paddock and learn about llamas. We will then start drawing. You will learn some conventions of animation, that allow your llama to show different emotions. Use your imagination, to draw your llama doing activities you may never have thought possible! You will learn easy ways to draw complex poses. Other things to note You will need to hold your work up to the camera on your device, for me to see it. Drawing with a texta or soft lead pencil (2B) works best for this reason.

  • Lucia Light — immerse in your light
    This is a unique, solo experience where you get to lie back in a quiet sanctuary space and experience the Lucia Light. The Lucia Light creates a profound inner journeying experience, a mystical state of consciousness – the kind that monks experience after years of meditation practice. With closed eyes, this 20-minute experience lets you see the movie of your mind - beautiful colours and patterns and shapes, all a creation of your own being. The light gently entrains brainwaves into a deep meditative state as lush landscapes of colour float by. Immersed in this kaleidoscopic world, you’re presented with the profound beauty of your very own quantum consciousness. The Lucia Light was developed by Austrian neurologist Dr Dirk Proeckl and clinical psychologist Dr Engelbert Winkler. Its reported benefits include: · Reduced anxiety, stress, fear and depression · Increased creativity · More restful sleep · Sense of oneness · Access astral travel and inner journeys · Increased sense of peace · Increased intuition · Improved physical healing · Release of beneficial hormones Other things to note - If you're sensitive to flickering light, this experience isn't for you. - The confirmation time above may say 'Melbourne' alongside it. Please ignore that - it's an AirBnB flaw - I'm definitely in Western Australia! (Melbourne is where I first set up this experience)

  • Walking with Alpacas
    After you come in the gate, turn right and park opposite the orchard. Then walk up to the barn to meet the alpacas. In the barn, we’ll meet some Alpacas and put their halters on while talking about the history of these sweet animals. Before we set off, you’ll have the opportunity to ask any burning questions, but of course you can ask questions at any time. We’ll walk the Alpacas around the farm which usually takes about an hour. After the walk, if you’d like, you can see the free ranging chickens in the orchard and check out our permaculture vegetable garden. If the dates or times open for an experience do not suit you please contact brigitte through contact host page and I will arrange for you to come at a time of your choice Our birthing season starts in December Other things to note If you would like a different time or day, please ring Brigitte on 0427 201192 between hours of 7 am and 7 pm to book a time and day which is convenient for you.

  • Self-drive Speed Boat Adventure
    The Sydney Harbour Bridge towers above like a cathedral of steel. The sun shimmers on the water. Breathe the fresh, salty air and gaze at the curved seashell shape of the Opera House and the glassy downtown skyscrapers reflecting the sky. You’re exploring the world famous Sydney Harbour on a boat. Even better, you’re the one behind the wheel. Yup, that’s right. You’re the captain on this unforgettable adventure. This is a fantastic way to see the main highlights of the harbour in a short amount of time - without having to share a boat with hundreds of others or listen to pre-recorded commentary. It’s an authentic, small-group experience with a knowledgeable local guide - giving you an up-close-and-personal glimpse of Sydney’s coolest spots. If you’ve never driven a boat before - don’t panic. The speedboat is safe and easy to operate and I’ll be right there to help you! No experience or licence is required. This two hour self-drive boat tour is perfect if you are short on time. However, if you have time for our three hour journey (https://www.airbnb.com.au/experiences/693197) - the upgrade is definitely worth it. When you factor in time for the safety briefing and preparation, the three hour trip actually gives you nearly twice as much time on the water! It’s a great value way to explore even more of the legendary Sydney Harbour. Other things to note Please wear casual clothes and shoes and bring sunscreen and a hat/cap. I will provide you with a life vest, and a waterproof bag for all your valuables. There are ponchos available if required.

  • Air Bee N Bee, Honey & Hive
    Honey is a remarkable food and ingredient. The taste, viscosity, colour and aromas are linked directly to the floral sources available to the bees. In this gourmet food tour you will join a local food and wine enthusiast, beekeeper and bon vivant on a honey tasting, overview of the lifecycle of a colony and then suit up and visit a beehive! The honey tasting provides a unique insight into the different tastes and textures created by Hamish’s bees and a diverse range of floral sources. Hamish harvests his honey using the Flow Hive system which allows you to take small amounts of honey at a time without disturbing the bees. We get to taste honeys collected weeks and sometimes days apart and compare them. All of this alongside leaf tea or plunger coffee, freshly baked scones and award winning jam. By building our knowledge of these important pollinators we are helping build a sustainable future for the bees and for all of us. You will need fully enclosed shoes to be able to do this. During winter (April - September) we don't open the hives but get up close to observe the bees coming and going and view them through specially designed glass hive windows. Although the group size is limited it is possible to host a larger group; I simply bring along another beekeeper and they will open another hive. Likewise you can request a date. @bowralbeekeeping
