The Bush & Beach takes you on tropical rainforest trails and into the Australian bush, with the final ride on Noosa’s North Shore surf beach. There is often an opportunity to muster cattle while the ride passes through large beef farms inland.

You ride in the morning leaving the afternoon free to relax, explore the local towns or go for a swim. There is a variety of scenery and wildlife and you are likely to see kangaroos and perhaps koala, as well as many native Australian birds.

The Bush & Beach itinerary is for riders who are confident and comfortable at all paces across open country on a well mannered, forward going horse.

The horses are Australian stock horses, famous for their all round ability and temperament. There is quite a variation within the breed, with some being more Thoroughbred types, through to other more Arabian types, with just about everything in between.

Most horses are ridden in Australian Stock saddles or similar but some can go in English saddles. Hard hats are mandatory.


The accommodation varies from authentic Bed and Breakfasts in the picturesque Mary River valley, to resort hotels in Noosa. Most rooms are en suite but on some nights, two rooms share a bathroom.

Two nights are spent in semi-permanent tents, each en-suite and on their own decking.

Guest Review

I have just had yet another fantastic holiday at Equathon and will continue to keep going back, as I don’t think there is anywhere else in Australia that can compare.

Rebecca says

The climate means this is a wonderful ride at any time of year and finishing with the ride on the beach splashing in the surf on horseback is great fun.

My Top Tip

Don't forget to "Slip-Slap-Slop" when out in the sun. Slip on a shirt slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat.
