Cowboy Up Trail Riding

Multiple Locations

Cowboy Up Trail Riding offers you the experience to ride the 'Cowboy Way' on their friendly, good natured, Quarter Horses. In comfortable western saddles, you will have a relaxing ride through a working cattle property. Trails will take you through picturesque country where wallabies, wild deer and native birdlife thrive. From rolling hills you will witness magnificent views of surrounding mountains and farmland.

All rides are fully guided and you can choose from a one hour ride, two hour ride (includes coffee and cake), half day cattle muster or half day ride (includes light lunch).

Cowboy Up Trail Riding also hires horses for movies and television productions. So you could be riding one of our movie horses on the trail.

Your hosts, Peter and Gill Gould have over 30 years experience with horses and are great teachers - particularly if you haven't ridden before or if you haven't ridden for a long time.

Bookings are essential.

Millstream Falls National Park

Ravenshoe, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
Plunging over the edge of a columnar basalt lava flow, Big Millstream Falls is reputedly the widest single-drop waterfall in Australia. Lying in the rain shadow of the eastern dividing ranges, the dry open woodland here is in stark contrast with the rainforest which is only kilometres away.

Mount Hypipamee National Park

Atherton, Tablelands Area

Yungaburra, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
This park protects a small area of an endangered type of forest, called mabi forest, the local Aborignal (Ngadjon) word for the Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo. The large fig tree found in this park is unique because the extensive aerial roots, that drop 15 metres to the forest floor, have formed a 'curtain'.

Frankland Group National Park

Deeral, Cairns Area
Free Entry
Surrounded by extensive fringing reefs, the five islands of Frankland Group National Park feature rocky outcrops, dense rainforest, mangroves and coastal vegetation, making them a haven for wildlife. A colony of spectacled flying-foxes roosts on Russell Island, while manta rays and sea turtles have been spotted in nearby waters, part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Lake Barrine, Crater Lakes National Park

Yungaburra, Tablelands Area
