Horse Riding Adventure

Horse riding on the 1,660 acre property is the most popular attraction. The Resort has over 50 gentle mannered horses to choose from, so all ages and levels of experience are well catered for. The rides are over pasture and bush land where you can enjoy the cattle and perhaps also the wildlife. The friendly staff endeavour to make it a ride you will not forget, by helping you with your skills along the way.

Each month as close to the full moon we enjoy a night ride and dinner. An evening spent around the fire with friends and family is an adventure that will stay in your memories for a long time.

The afternoon kicks off about 4.30pm with the ride out to the Susan River where a bowl of hot pumpkin soup and bread is waiting for you. Enjoy a billy tea or coffee before climbing back on the horses for a night trek back to the homestead. By then the stars or the moon is out and brightening the way for you. A full barbecue smorgasbord is waiting for the riders & friends to devour in the recently renovated restaurant.
