From these humble beginnings it has grown to be one of the premier guiding operations in Australia with the best teaching facility bar none. Namely a magnificent buidling made of earth, stone and wood and built on the banks of the Goulburn River with private lakes and accessible to numerous rivers in the immediate area.
