Gold Coast Horse Riding

Even if you've never been on a horse before, trail riding through the Australian bush is something you will never forget. The gentle motion of the horse, the steady clip clop of their sure feet on the land and the sense of comradeship with your fellow riders are all things you will remember long after the experience is over.

When they think of the Gold Coast, most people picture golden beaches and exciting nightlife, however tucked in behind all this is a veritable treasure trove of gorgeous mountain scenery and amazing landmarks. Experience the Gold Coast hinterland by horseback and you will never forget it. Mount Tamborine offers some great horse riding experiences though spectacular rainforest and mountain trails, at Thunderbird Park through Tamborine Mountain Trail rides.

Friendly and experienced guides lead groups of between 2-10 people on rides ranging from half an hour to one and a half hours at reasonable prices, with special group discounts for families. For more Gold Coast horse riding ideas, check out the great options below.

While it's not technically horse riding, we had to include this incredible tour of the Scenic Rim because there's nothing else like it on the Gold Coast! Taking you to a number of the region's best breweries and wineries by horse-drawn carriage, you'll get to travel in style and enjoy some wine and beer tasting, cheese platter, a la carte lunch and afternoon tea at the various stops along the way. 4.5 hour tour in total that's not to be missed!
