If you arrive at the crossroads of one of Australia’s best beach spots and a true Australian horse and cattle adventure you must be on your way from Gympie to Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island. If you are a horse rider visiting from overseas this means you can tick-off two items which are on your bucket list – Fraser Island and Australia’s best horse adventure! You are about ready to get right into the thrill of chasing some cattle and at the same time take your horse and ride on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
This must be Australian’s absolute best horseriding adventure, not only because of its location and beauty but because it ideally combines action packed days with a touch of beach and luxury and hospitality, all delivered by the great horse people who have been living in this area for generations.
Once you arrive up on Goomboorian mountain, you will be able to enjoy fabulous views across the Sunshine Coast landscape, the ocean sparkling in the distance with a view of Fraser Island. And be warned, the view from the deck is nothing short of spectacular and it will take your breath away.
This is the place where you will not just be horse riding, you will enjoy a learning experience which can easily get you prepared for your second career as a jackaroo or jillaroo should you be tempted to never leave this place which you might be, I assure you. Throughout the week, guided by Andrew, you will get involved in all facets of working with cattle and learn what it takes to train and ride high performance stock horses with whom you will enjoy a true working partnership. You will love these horses!
And then let’s not forget what your own local chef and his brigade will prepare for you. It’s a far cry from what you would expect on a camping trip and you will just be amazed about the culinary Aussie delights which will be served up from the camp ovens or prepared over an open fire. It will include everything what the local waters and paddock have on offer.
If you are looking for more experiences of which dreams are made of, the absolute highlight of the week will be a full day trip to the most famous Rainbow Beach, where you will spend a day riding your horse along this beautiful long stretch of sandy beach!
Is there anything else to say about this experience? You just have to come and see to believe!
