From three wheels to two!
Just back from holidays on the Sunshine Coast and the place we stayed now has 'Segway Safaris'! These are all-terrain Segways that go through the bush tracks and around the resort's lagoon beaches. Unfortunately they are not allowed on the surf beach as yet due to issues with Council regulations. You start off in 'turtle' mode where they are speed limited to about 9km an hour for use around the shared paths of the resort. At the end of the tour once you have mastered them they are taken off turtle mode in a large park and you can really fly - video below! An awesome way to get around but a bit hard on the lower calf muscles if you are not used to standing (and leaning!) for long periods.
