The Man From Kangaroo Valley Horse Riding – trail rides and farm style accommodation
The ‘Man from Kangaroo Valley’ is a 230 acre working horse property that includes Mt Moollootoo, lush rainforests, bushland as well as open grazing land.
Your hosts Gail and Geoff offer trail rides and farm style accommodation and they love to share their beautiful environment, peaceful lifestyle and love of horses with their guests. Is there any better way to experience the beauty of the paradise that is the Kangaroo Valley than on horseback?
There is something quite special about the smell of saddle leather and horseflesh and the relaxing motion of a trail ride. To be able to hear, see and smell the rainforest and drink in the clean mountain air atop one of Geoff and Gail’s steeds is truly an experience not to be missed, and the view from the top is spectacular.
Geoff’s herd consists of mainly Arabs, Standardbreds, Thoroughbreds and Quarter horses, all 38 mounts have been well schooled by the kind hand of natural horsemanship. Geoff describes his trail rides as ‘a bush walk on horseback’ where he takes the time to share his knowledge and passion for the history, geography and wildlife of his magical valley. Bushwalking is also an attraction as the property is flanked by Morton National Park offering 140,000 hectares of bushland, water falls, gorges and sandstone plateaus with walking trails that start at Geoff and Gail’s side gate. Come for a ride or stay a little longer in The Main Lodge or the Mini Lodge.
The Main Lodge, a loft style accommodation constructed of recycled timbers and granite, accommodates up to 14 people in an open plan configuration excellent for extended family or friend groups. The Mini Lodge is perfect for couples, built from recycled oregon it has a queen bed, double sofa bed, reverse cycle air conditioning and a self contained kitchen. Guests are invited to share in the experience of the camp fire by night, so don’t forget the marshmallows.
