If you love horses, the Scenic Rim has plenty of great options to get out exploring on horseback.
The Scenic Rim is about an hour outside of the Gold Coast and Brisbane and is famous for its delicious local produce and amazing scenery.
And both of those things are on offer at Yalbaroo Scenic Rim Retreat. There’s room for two guests in the revamped 150-year-old barn and there’s room for your horses in the renovated stable right next door!
Guests are welcomed with a hamper stocked with fresh local produce and the owner, Rachel, can supply trail maps of her giant property. Rachel can also meet riders out on the trails with a picnic for two.
At Beechmont, Scenic Rim Equine Group offers a range of tours for kids and adults, and for all levels of experience. Their hour-long horse rides take in views down to Surfers Paradise, and the stunning Canungra Valley. They also offer horse riding lessons.
