Horse Riding Tours In Australia

Previously the most common way to get around this vast country, horseback riding tours in Australia remain a favourite among tourists who want to see the diverse landscapes at a relaxed pace. It is possible to take tours that pass through the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast or through the many cattle farms and rainforests of South Australia.

The Snowy Mountains, the highest peaks in the country, are also great for riding in summer, as are the Blue Mountains on the edge of Sydney and Bogong peak in Victoria. All of these mountain areas can be traversed on horseback.

For gentler horseback riding tours in Australia, many travellers hit the beaches for which the country is famous, particularly those on the east coast close to the Great Barrier Reef. One of the good things about horseback riding tours in Australia is that the climate is perfect for most of the year. In many areas there are also very few roads, making it easy to get off the beaten track.

In South Australia, there are huge cattle farms where horses are the mainstay of the many homesteads. Some Australian horseback riding tours here offer travellers the chance to become part of the cattle drive, helping herd hundreds of cows along long desert trails in the outback. Many tours on horseback can last a few days and cover huge distances, meaning sleep is taken under the stars.
