Horseback Riding in Australia

Horseback riding in Australia has some wonderful advantages for a vacation. The land of “The Man from Snowy River” has strong riding traditions, friendly people, a vibrant cultural life, excellent food, miles of unpopulated beach and ideal terrain for riding in the hinterland. The exotic wildlife which includes kangaroos, wombats and koala bears is interesting to see. There are over 800 species of bird in Australia and many, like the huge, flightless emu, the cockatoo and the saucy kookaburra, are fascinating to watch. Colorful birds can be seen everywhere in the majestic trees while riding through the rain forests.

Though nearly as large as the US, Australia has less than a tenth of our population which leaves plenty of space for riding and there are many rights-of-way for horses in scenic areas. Without a doubt, Australia has some of the finest horses in the world for equestrian tours and riding is very popular with the Aussies. We have several options from which to choose, both a point-to-point ride and a stationary farm based stay. Both horseback adventures here are a wonderful way to get to know the country and its people.
