Ride with the true cattle(wo)men of the Kimberley in Western Australia who have been preserving the experience and history of the stockmen, the cattle musters and the pioneering years of one of Australia’s most beautiful regions.
You will be joining a 5 days / 6 nights horse riding adventure in the magnificent Kimberley region, exploring breathtaking landscapes on horseback and moving cattle on one of Australia’s historic cattle stations spanning over 700,000 acres.
When you saddle up for your ride in the morning you will feel transported back in time, into the scenes from Baz Luhrmann’s movie AUSTRALIA. Yes, you are not mistaken, this is where some of the filming took place. So, giddy up, enjoy the view and check on these cattle!
Limited to a maximum of eight riders, this is an authentic Australian cattle station experience – not just an experience prepared for the visitors – so be prepared for some early starts and a few long days in the saddle as we will be riding for about 4 – 6 hours every day. It is a station-based program which means you will be returning to the station each night.
The week includes morning rides with smoko (tea break), lunches at remote waterholes on certain days and lunches in the shade of the homestead veranda on others, afternoon rides, sunset rides, and evening camp fires at the homestead. After a hearty dinner, your comfortable bed with a view of the star filled sky will be calling.
As with all of Horses & Cattle Australia experiences, this is the real deal and to get the most out of the experience as a guest, you will be supported by experienced stock(wo)men guiding you. If you are an experienced rider this will be an experience of a lifetime.
