We had our daughter’s wedding ceremony at Yarrabin and it was magical. With all of our friends and family gathered around this bush setting it created a peaceful and spiritual ambience. Annie was a delight to deal with during our preparations and was very accommodating.

I spent a couple of days on the Yarrabin ranch and enjoyed both the stay and the riding very much. Coming from Finland, it was just amazing to see kangaroos and wallabies from horseback! Annie is the most welcoming host you could have and takes very good care of her guests, with her family and team. Everything from riding to cooking was just beautiful. Thank you all ever so much, I would love to come back some day.

Relax and unwind, ride a horse in the beautiful Australian bush, enjoy country comforts, food and hospitality. Have a swim and spa, sit around a cosy fireplace at night after a hearty country dinner, and enjoy the company of new and old friends and maybe a wine or two the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. We keep returning to Yarrabin, for the simple fact that we always leave in much higher spirits than when we arrived thanks to our wonderful hosts.

Day trip ride with family: horses were fit & obedient, easy to ride suitable for all riders & not too dobbinny/trekky -had enough go for a few fast canters. Well guided ride with charming hosts, spotted plenty of wildlife inc wallabies & wombats amongst bush & fantastic vistas from top of the property. Can't wait to visit again. Fantastic place to visit for a taste of Australian country life

Yarrabin. Where to start? I could tell you about the wonderful, healthy, happy horses that live in big open wide spaces on the property. I could tell you about the breathtaking thousands of acres of trails. The exquisite eucalyptus forests and luscious fields where you can ride for hours, with kangaroos hopping around. I could tell you about the warm, welcoming Phillips who instantly treat you like you've been part of the family for years. I'll tell you this: Yarrabin is a hidden paradise that offers something for everyone and it's the place you've been searching for. I visited Yarrabin 3 years ago and I am still dreaming of the time I'll be able to go back! - Adri, from Montreal, QC.

I have been going to Yarrabin for 20 years. I started going when I was very little, went through Kids Camps as a young teenager and now as an adult, I continue to go back! My family and I love this place, the facilities are great, the food amazing and the horse riding even better!

Can't stop going back, owners and staff are amazing make you feel like you are coming home like you are important, scrumptious food and plenty of it, just relax by the fireplace or in the spa, go for a ride on one of the amazing Yarrabin horses on trails winding through the beautiful Australian bush lots of native animals to see on the way. Help with the ranch work or just totally chill out all up to you.

Yarrabin is a 3-4 hr drive from Sydney or Canberra. The attraction is horse-riding in a rural environment. The property has sheep & cattle not to mention countless kangaroos. Accommodation is cabin style with en-suite, most have a balcony. Wholesome (plentiful) meals are provided. BYO drinks. There's a pub at nearby O'Connell about 6km by road for those who need to stock up. But its horse-riding that most come for. At the A.O. (Adults Only) weekends there are 2 rides per day of approximately 1-1/2 to 2-1/2hr duration. Each ride is different - thru' the forest, out to old mines, open paddocks, lookouts, even a bit of sheep/cattle mustering. There are around 24 horses in the Yarrabin mob of different breeds. All rides are accompanied by several experienced wranglers who assist & advise on the riders techniques etc. All riding abilities are catered for. An enjoyable weekend alternative for people who need their horsey fix or others wanting to try. Will come back again.
