The landscape where you go riding is serene, tranquil and beautiful. You really are separated from the world, with our guide carrying a satellite phone because there is no mobile service, so you really get in touch with nature which is wonderful. We had a 2 hour private ride, so just the 2 of us and our guide. Unfortunately after... More

small grouo of 7 on an experienced ride. I wouldn't call everyone 'experienced' but they could all hang on at a canter. Great horses that actually were responsive and didn't get fixzy even after some really big forward canters up hills. The ride was long enough that we ended up being able to split for the canters, so half could... More

Amazing weekend away in nature. Beautiful property for (bush) camping with so few sites on the property your nearest neighbors are a 5 minute walk. Awesome place to go riding close to Sydney. Jess & Co were so friendly and helpful!

We had a fantastic weekend camping on the property and doing some horse riding on some lovely, well looked after horses. The scenery and ambience was perfect. Peter and Jess (and all the family and crew) were very helpful and so relaxed, we can't wait to get back!!

Stunning beautiful amazing scenery. Bush Camping at its finest, views and scenery provide life long memories. The ability to drive or walk around this gorgeous property allows for some fun times and the horse riding tours are outstanding. Staff are superb to deal with and a pleasure to be around. We will be back many times with more friends and... More

Beautiful location and stunning views on the property with no one around at our campsite located away from the homestead. Great morning horse riding and well organised for our younger children to be able to ride with instructor walking alongside.

Just back from a superb ride led by Emma who is always a delight to ride with. Being Good Friday the place was alive with campers, kids, dogs and visiting horses, a carnival atmosphere. Emma led us away from the crowds, we had lots of long canters and all kept commenting on the natural beauty of the property. The horses,... More

We really enjoyed our two hour private ride with a lovely guide, also called Laura. We hadn't been on a horse for a while so it was a great way to ease back in, the team were great at making sure we felt comfortable, and the horses were calm and sweet. As we rode around the beautiful patch of land... More

Stayed early April. We had a large clearing on the property to ourselves. Cleanest campsite we have been to with no obvious signs of previous campers. Our group went on a 2 hour horse ride on the Saturday morning which we thought was wonderful & very professionally run. We all decided that this has become a favourite campsite and we... More

I just finished the 3 day/2 night muster and it was brilliant. I ride regularly all over the country and this is my preferred place for the quality of the horses (quiet but very responsive, not regular nose-to-tail trail riding horses), the stunning scenery, variety of trails and lovely family and staff who run the business/property. The muster and rides... More
