Wow Wow Wow

Fantastic experience. The team at Goldfields jet were awesome from start to finish. The jet boating was fantastic with the driver telling us a lot about the history of the area and river. We were out for more than 25 mins so that was real value for money. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a fantastic jet boat experience. Marion

Great Staff! Fun ride!

We were running a tad late due to road construction and gave them a call to wait for us and they were so polite! We arrived and were greeted by the friendliest dog, who we even snagged a photo with! The ride was a blast, the photos were fun!
