A Salty Breeze in the Bogongs Sep 2012
For those lucky enough to join us here at Spring Spur, you may notice a little salty air about the stables and yards, as the old timber Barwon Heads bridge stands renewed in the Bogongs.
The tidal marks have long since dried and the splinters removed, but all her charm remains as the main trusses in the new Riders Lounge firmly assembled with raw steel plates and bolts rusting to match the well seasoned timber.
The new Lounge will be the centre of activities at Bogong Horseback Adventures, she stands tall, almost five meters at her top, welcoming, strong, friendly and bright, as her windows frame the rugged sky line of the Bogongs with silvered timber of bushfires past and the promise of new adventures. The Lounge will be a keeping place for artifacts from the rich history of the high country horse, a place for the BHA community to share stories, relax and enjoy the goodies from the kitchen garden and wood fired oven, local wines and beers or a great coffee.
In the gardens and adjacent to the Riders Lounge, is the Accommodation building, featuring six, king sized en-suite rooms. With double glazing and north sun these rooms are designed as a home away from home, where you can relax and enjoy your own private garden with a glass of wine and a little of our local produce.
The Riders Lounge and Accommodation is due to open for the 2012-13 season.
