Reynella Alpine Horse Riding Safaris into Kosciuszko National Park
Man From Snowy River country
Feel on top of the world – be on top of Australia with the original and most experienced trail rides in the Kosciuzsko National Park.
Roslyn and John Rudd (OAM) have over 50 years experience of mountain safaris plus many more years of local history behind them.
John or his staff, all experienced bush men and women, lead the safaris with the tales of the mountains they tell entertaining riders on the trail and around the campfire at night.
The safaris cater for a wide range of interests and capabilities.
Those who have done very little or no riding find that they are soon confident on horseback, largely due to the expertise and encouragement of John and his team. Experienced riders find that their skills are refined by the end of the week, also under the leaders’ watchful eyes.
All rides explore the breathtaking scenery of the Kosciuzsko National Park. You will be taken to a stream where trout fishing is at its best – or visit a gold mine where fortunes have been won and lost.
Treks through the northern part of the Park take you to places such as Tabletop Mountain, Currango Plain, Tantangara Creek and Mount Tantangara (well known for the wild brumbies that frequent the area).
A six day trek usually covers a distance of around 160 kms (100 miles).
John and Roslyn provide you with virtually everything you need for camping and riding, including mattresses, tents, hard hats and food. While you would normally bring your own clothing, wet weather gear, riding boots and sleeping bag, the Rudds can optionally supply you (at extra cost) with sleeping bags and oilskin coats.
While no prior riding experience is required a reasonable level of fitness is highly desirable.
At the end of the day our four-wheel drive vehicles will meet you with all the gear for the overnight stay.
Sitting pleasantly fatigued around the campfire you will share laughter and stories of the day’s ride with your co-travelers. A warm hearty three-course meal is cooked for you, accompanied by freshly-made damper and washed down with mugs of billy tea. Your tasks are to sit back and do nothing but enjoy the relaxation and sense of physical wellbeing from a great day’s ride in the magnificent Australian high country.
Guests need to arrive between 5pm- 7pm on the day of arrival, in time to prepare for their trip. The safari departs the following morning, returning to the homestead for the finale dinner on the last night and departing for breakfast the next morning. Guests also spend their first night at Reynella Homestead for dinner and a briefing.
Checkout is by 10am on the day of departure.
