Horse riding is a very popular pursuit in Australia which has riding centres
all over the country. A number of specialist tours are available on horseback as well as the opportunity to simply go for an hour's ride across terrain that you've never before experienced.
For an experience of a lifetime, join in on a canter across the firm, white sands of one of Australia's many beaches and enjoy a picnic lunch, or take a tour of the Snowy Mountains and view the scene of 'that' incredible, daring jump in the 'Man from Snowy River' movie!
In Australia, you can go trail riding, beach trekking, tropical rainforest exploring
, escaping to the outback, discovering the bush, winery touring, or even go on a five-day ‘bushranger pub crawl', all from the sturdy back of one of the world's most loved creatures – the horse!
You can undertake an hour's ride, book a full course in horse-riding, hire a pony for the day, or enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of Australia in a one or more day riding experience. If the idea of sitting aside one of these superb beasts does not appeal to you, try a delicious meal on board an elegant, horse-drawn restaurant carriage as you clip clop your way through part of country Victoria or a simple tour of many of Australia's cities in an open-air sulky.
