Field to Forest 4WD Foraging Tours

This special 4WD Foraging tour has been created for you in partnership with Oberon Visitors Information Centre for the very first F2F Oberon 2019.

It is a great experience for those wanting to get out and about in amongst the pine forests of Oberon. Departing from Oberon Visitors Information Centre, seats are strictly limited so please book early.

You’ll be treated to a great 4WD trip to some of the more remote areas of the forests, where identification and foraging are at its best. See and learn about the area, enjoy the comfort of a luxury 4WD and have fun. This 2 hour tour is fun for all.

Forage, collect or simply photograph mushrooms in the wild. Take in all the sensations of the pine forests; the sights, the rich pine smell and the atmosphere.

Join us on a 4WD adventure that you’ll talk about for years to come.
