Horse Riding

There are loads of places to ride your horse throughout the region.  Or, if you don't have a horse to bring, there are horse riding schools that will lead you to a horse, show you the ropes and take you on a trail ride through some of the most beautiful countryside in Australia.

Designated trails and tracks through the lush rainforest are available, and several beaches along the coast are horse-friendly.  There are also the off-road rail trails that make an easy and scenic ride.

 

Highlights

You Yangs

Rising from the flat, volcanic plains between Geelong and Melbourne, the granite peaks of the You Yangs are a terrific destination for many outdoor activities. Walk to Flinders Peak for panoramic views of Geelong, Corio Bay, the Western Districts and beyond. There are several walking tracks within the park catering for varying abilities. The You Yangs are popular for mountain biking; the two designated mountain bike areas offer 50km of track. The park is also popular for rock climbing, abseiling and horse riding and there are BBQ and picnic areas available, as well as toilets.
