Summary of The Day: Experience two thrilling and scenic trips into the natural world around Cairns with a combined horse riding and ATV tour! We'll pick you up right from your hotel in the morning and head out north of Cairns to Yorkeys Knob, where our adventure will begin.
We'll begin with our horseback riding tour into the local rainforest, but first we'll fit you for a helmet and introduce you to your horse. After a safety lesson - fit for any skill level and age - we'll head out on a scenic ride through rainforests, wetlands, sugarcane fields, and local Australian bushlands! Our horses have a friendly, mature nature and will be matched to each riders experience and ability. Draw up on horse-back alongside our 18 acre billabong for a billy tea over a camp fire and the chance to see a croc in the wild!
Then we'll return to Yorkeys Knob for a lunch break, complete with bottomless tea and coffee. There will be cafe style food available for purchase.
Next, we'll start our thrilling ATV tour. After a safety lesson to get you comfortable on your bike, we'll cruise out through the area for you to practice your new skills and enjoy a fun-filled trip. With a fleet of both 90cc and 250cc bikes, your guides will ensure the perfect balance between safety and fun! So easy to ride, our group sizes remain small, to guarantee your personalized experience. Anyone can do it!
Then we'll return to Yorkeys Knob for another coffee break before returning you to your accommodation.

Our horses are exceptionally well treated and maintained and all have a friendly nature (like our tour guides!) We will match each guest with a horse that compliments the riders experience and ability.
Generally we have a minimum of 1 guide for every 6 customers.
Groups are usually kept to a maximum of 12 people.
We have 30 fabulous healthy horses, mainly Australian Stock Horses but we also have a selection of Quarter Horses, Arabians and many others. All with individual characters and great temperaments.
We use Australian Stock Saddles. We are the only horseriding company to exclusively use “Saferider” stirrups with a quick release mechanism to prevent accidents.
Our Honda TRX250 ATV’s are very well maintained and are powerful enough to let you feel great acceleration and grunt. They are ultra manoevrable and as safe as possible. The ride itself which is on a trail separate from the horse rides is exciting and has great views. There are a few water traps and hill climbs to negotiate. You will be trained first and then examined to see if you can handle the power and then we let you loose on the trail (under guided supervision). There is a smaller bike option for people not comfortable with the larger quad bikes.
