Think big

Turning 30 is a milestone moment, so it's nice to give a gift worthy of the occasion. You could always go in with friends and help the birthday boy or girl tick an experience off their bucket list. Think a cruise or flight over the Great Barrier Reef or maybe a hot air balloon experience?

Turbo rally drive 17 laps 

"I bought this experience for my boyfriend for his 30th birthday. The team on the day were awesome, informative and instructive. My boyfriend said the instructors inside the car were awesome. The cars were great. There were complimentary snacks and drinks for everyone. It was an awesome morning activity. As a guest I also go to do a hot lap on the day for an extra cost which was cool. I would recommend this experience for sure.” Kirsty, 22/07/18.

Rottnest Island scenic flight for two

“Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The weather was amazing, and very clear to be up in the air. The flight was a short one to Rotto, and was a smooth flight. We had a great time riding around and exploring the island. Our pilot was amazing, and super informative as we flew over to Rotto. Would hands down recommend this to anyone who wants a new way to get to the Island. Perfect 30th birthday gift for my partner.” Kahlie. 28/04/18.
