A Ride To Remember

Imagine clip clopping along the winding trails through the cool green rainforest. There’s nothing to disturb the peace except the gentle sound of hooves and the birds. Trace the banks along the tumbling creek and climb upwards through majestic ancient gum trees. Reach the top and be captivated by breathtaking views of the valley below.
Thunderbird Park Trail Rides offers a range of options for adults and children. Everyone can enjoy this simple pleasure. It doesn’t matter if you have never been on a horse before or if you are an experienced rider, this will be a new, safe and thrilling experience. 

Take the Trail Ride priced at $50 for half an hour and amble alongside picturesque Cedar Creek. This ride is suitable for anyone aged more than seven years.
The Bush Ride at $75 for about an hour takes riders on a scenic trek to Thunderbird Park’s woodland mountain ridge. Be prepared to meet the natives; wallabies, kangaroos, koalas and goannas come out of hiding to see the horses pass by.
The Hill Top Ride at $95 for around an hour and a half) follows the forest tracks to the highlands. A breathtaking view to the Great Dividing Range is the halfway reward and a moment to remember as you ride down through sun-dappled rainforest.
