Bogong Horseback Adventures

Join Bogong Horseback Adventures three day Packhorse expedition and experience a truly Australian experience. Get a little saddle grease on your trouser seat this Australia day weekend.

Travelling back in time leaving the 21st century behind as you ride into the belly of the clouds to the 'mountain dreaming place' the High country. Packhorses carrying all the camping equipment for comfortable camping. The packhorse load will surprise you with the 'magic pudding' quality, delicious camp fire meals served one after the other. Bogong Horseback Adventures are proud to combine both living an old world heritage with modern comforts and cuisine.

This expedition takes in Mount Fainter and Bogong Jacks Hideout. An iconic short Australian break. It is made easy for the casual weekend rider or the beginner rider, by camping two nights at Bogong Jacks Hideout camp. On Sunday you ride out over Mount Fainter and unload the lunch pack at Tawonga huts.

After your billy boils and the cake washed down with billy tea it is out into Pretty Valley for a few good canters, let the wind blow out the cob webs and stresses of your busy lives.
