“Would not recommend for small children”
Reviewed December 7, 2011

Tonimbuk website stated that horses would be appropriate for our size. Children were placed on large horses. There were two guides, one at front and one at back of group. Children in the middle of the group were left without any guidance. Scenery was attractive, but a some parts hilly not flat, could not relax and enjoy it. When the group commenced trotting, which we were not expecting, my 8 year old daughter fell from her large horse. Overall not a relaxing experience and would not recommend to families with small children.

“Great Australian experience!”
Reviewed March 9, 2011

This is exactly what we were looking for. An experience where we could enjoy the Australian bushland and see beautiful views. We aren't very experienced riders, but the guides were very patient with us and in no time we felt safe and comfortable on our friendly horses. We really enjoyed our ride - even though we wish it could have gone for longer! Highly recommend this place. Bit far, but definitely worth the trip.
