A Segway is quite easy to use, you'll get the hang of it in no time. 

Segway Tours South Coastare available at Killalea State Park in Shellharbour or Coolangatta Estate in the Shoalhaven, both are located along the Grand Pacific Drive. You can zip along paths, past beaches and vineyards, twist and turn through tracks and cover so much ground without your feet even touching the ground. The operators can show you a number of courses they travel regularly, or put together something especially for you. Segway travel is great alone, better for two and often a real riot in a group.

As you're on top of the water you get a view into the crystal depths where you'll find fascinating sea life looking back at you.
