Tamborine Mountain Trail Rides is nestled in the foothills of the Gold Coast’s Tamborine Mountain, in historic Thunderbird Park, a sprawling 112 hectare mountain retreat bordered by State Forest and National Park.
Imagine riding trails that wind through cool, green rainforest next to a rushing creek, then climbing upwards to venture through majestic, tall gum trees with breathtaking views of the valley below! It's some of the best horse riding at Mt Tamborine and is one of the Gold Coast Hinterland's favourite attractions.
Tamborine Mountain is known world wide for its unique, mystical beauty. You will soon discover why it attracts people from all over the world!
All of the horses are fit, exceptionally well looked after and in very good condition. They vary in breed and type and all are experienced in negotiating the mountain trails. We will match you with a horse to suit your level of experience and your size. We use mainly Australian stock saddles, all of which are individually fitted to the horses, comfortable to ride in and well maintained.
