Gold Rush Trail and Beach Ride

Gold Rush Trail and Beach Ride
Queensland Australia

This is a complete seven day, six night riding tour in Queensland with five days of riding featuring the best beach and bush trails of Noosa, the Sunshine Coast hinterland and the Fraser Coast and South Burnett.

The rides will take you riding along the beach in Noosa, through a variety of the best rainforest and bush trails in the Mary Valley and into the Australian beef country to muster on selected private cattle properties. You will be amazed by the scenery and wildlife - kangaroos, koalas, hundreds of native Australian birds including many species of colorful parrots. Experience world-class riding on the back of beautiful Australian Stock Horses.

Join us on an all inclusive tour with horses, saddlery, local transport, quality accommodations, great guides and hosts and fine regional foods. The trips are led by triple Olympian Alex Watson and professional staff and guides. There are some great canters over the wide open beaches and an opportunity to muster cattle when the ride heads inland. You ride 3 to 5 hours on most days, leaving enough free time to relax, explore the local towns or go for a swim. At night you stay in comfortable B&Bs full of Aussie character and a luxury beach resort with spa, pools and in-room massage options. The climate in this region is reputed to be one to the best in the world. Winters are mild and during summer cooling sea breezes make for a good riding experience.
