Tips for koala spotting…on horseback

There’s nothing like taking a break from city life, and what better way to “go bush” than on horseback?

But the latest offering from Nash Horse Trekking adds another element into the mix… koala spotting!

Carolyn Nash leads the gentle two-hour ride through the bushlands of Coominya. The vicinity is a protected koala habitat.

And she has quite the track record, spotting up to 13 koalas in one ride.

Her tip when on koala lookout is to simply look for a lump, usually in the fork of the tree, but sometimes towards the edges of the branches if it’s late afternoon and the animals start to get hungry.

Carolyn’s passion for the koalas can only be matched by the love for her horses and for showing people what horse riding is really about.

“Horses–they’re quite magical, actually,” she said. “They have this therapeutic thing going on and they really bring people back to earth.”

Nash Horse Trekking welcomes everyone, from nervous beginners right through to the riding pros. They also welcome any age.

Aside from the Koala Spotting Ride, Nash offers a number of rides, varying from short trails to longer pub rides and even camp-outs.

Book your horseback adventure today at Nash Horse Trekking, located at 90 Willaura Dr, Coominya. You can reach them at 0413 248 898 or online here.
