Set amongst deep gorges and high mountain ranges with rugged rock formations and magnificent panoramas ‘Catninga’ is the perfect choice to give you a taste of the Flinders Ranges.
Catninga homestead was built in late 1800’s when it was run as a merino sheep/wool producing property. Once you drive through the gates, the homestead will come into view and as you get closer, just by looking at the beautiful veranda, it will be confirmed to you that you have come to the real Australia.
Catninga comes with a story which your hosts will happily share with you. There is a reason why Catninga has been featured in movies and was chosen for our Horses & Cattle promotional video. It’s a beautiful place with history. So what more can we say? Have a look at the video and it will say more than a thousand words.
This is the real deal because Catninga with its hosts ticks all of the boxes of a real authentic Australian horse and cattle station experience. When we say at Horses & Cattle Australia that you will be riding with the true horse people of Australia, then Heather and Brian are nothing less.
You will be able to experience and participate in authentic station work and life and enjoy a personalised outdoor experience in a unique setting, where you can disconnect from your busy urban life and reconnect with nature.
There is a cozy guest carriage with all of the amenities required after a day in the saddle and to ensure that you get a good night’s rest.
Horses and horse riding are central to a true cattle station experience and staying with Brian and Heather will ensure that you get as many hours in the saddle working cattle or exploring the beautiful Flinders Ranges landscape on horseback as you would like.
In addition, your stay at Catninga brings together the best of personal and homelike country hospitality, accommodation and good family style cooking with regionally sourced food – not forgetting a cold beer and glass of wine at the end of the day sitting on the beautiful veranda admiring these spectacular sunsets.
