Australia - Bush & Beach

The route takes you on tropical rainforest trails and into the Australian bush, with the final ride on Noosa's spectacular North Shore surf beach. Advanced_Ecotourism_Certified_lowhresThere is often an opportunity to muster cattle while the ride passes through large beef farms inland. Then there are some great canters over the wide open beach on your last riding day. You ride in the morning leaving the afternoon free to relax, explore the local towns or go for a swim. At night you stay in comfortable B&Bs, full of Aussie character, with many hilarious tales told around the dinner table.

The variety of scenery and wildlife is amazing and you are likely to see kangaroos and perhaps even lucky enough to see a koala as well as hundreds of native Australian birds including many species of colourful parrots.

After the ride you may wish to continue north along the coast to the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkelling or diving on the reef for a few days makes a great extension to this riding holiday.

Once a year there is a special itinerary which coincides with the Melbourne Cup, known as 'the race that stops a nation'. The Melbourne Cup Snowy River itinerary combines riding in the legendary Snowy River with time spent in Melbourne for the big race.

The wonderful 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.
