Horse Riding Cairns and Green Island

This tremendous two-day package of Green Island and Horseriding from Cairns has you snorkelling and swimming on one day, and then Horseriding through the rainforest the next day!  A great package for the whole family!

Green Island

Green Island is a beautiful coral cay within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, 45 minutes ferry trip from Cairns.

This tropical island is covered in rainforests and is also surrounded by sandy beaches and coral reefs. So see Green Island your way with a choice between a glass-bottom boat tour or the use of snorkelling equipment.

The friendly crew will help you to organise your day on the journey out to maximise your time on Green Island. Once on the island, you can relax on the beach, take a walk through the rainforest or experience the reef with your snorkel gear or glass-bottom boat. There are no designated snorkel sessions, so you will have the freedom to spend as much or as little time in the water as you like.

There are multiple options for lunch – visit one of the restaurants on the island or pack your own picnic.

Horseriding Cairns 

Our Horseriding Cairns Tour is our most popular tour and is perfect for people of all ages and abilities. This tour is available in the morning, afternoon, or twilight and includes everything you’ll need for an exciting day. So be prepared for stunning vies as we take a ride through the paddocks, rainforest, and river.

Our unique horse rides will take you all around our gorgeous 150-acre property and give you an experience you’ll never forget. Surrounded by world heritage mountains and the planet’s oldest rainforests. So sit back and enjoy the view from the best seat in the house, your horse. Our professional tour guides take you across hilltops to headlands, and then you will be awestruck by the stunning scenery. Ride down into the rainforest, and then finally to the crystal clear Little Mulgrave river (season permitting).

When you arrive at our lovely farm, you will be greeted by friendly personnel and farm animals who will make you feel right at home. Before assisting you adjust your helmet and get ready to go, staff will explain the mandatory Acknowledgement of Risk form and review the plan for your tour.

Before we go, we’ll all watch a short safety video together on the TV. This briefing will cover everything you need to know to stay safe and have fun while on your Horseriding Cairns tour, from how to sit in your saddle to what to do if your horse needs to go to the bathroom!

It’s time to explore!

Your tour guide will select the most appropriate horse for your size and skill, and you will be escorted to your new buddy for the day once the horses have been prepared. After that, we’ll head out into the magnificent environs for around 1.5 hours of horseriding through mountains, forests, paddocks, and rivers (be prepared to get a little wet!).

You will be safely helped off your horse when you return to the farm. You will then take a seat in our restaurant area and assist yourself to a range of refreshments and beverages while viewing the wonderful photographs of your Horseriding Cairns tour. These will be available for purchase.

This truly is a day out for everyone interested in experiencing the wonders of horseriding through nature’s majesty. With horses and tours to suit all abilities from toddlers to adults as well as novices to more experienced riders.
