Ride

Our family has deep ancestral connections to the Victorian High Country that date back to the gold rushes of the 1860s. With a wish to preserve our family history and connection to the Bogong High Plains, and to enable us to share this connection with others, we established Bogong Horseback Adventures in Tawonga in 1986. Our vision was to offer exceptional horseback expeditions in some of the best mountain terrain in Australia. Now long established, we continue to provide unparalleled mountain horseback experiences with comfortable camps and great fire-cooked meals in the pristine Alpine National Park. We’re proud to preserve the great Australian tradition of throwing a swag down under the stars and sharing stories over the campfire.

Day Rides

Bogong Horseback Adventures has been operating an award-winning riding experience since 1986. We breed and train all of our own horses here at Spring Spur using natural horsemanship methods, and we proudly use only the highest quality Australian-made equipment. We offer safe and enjoyable horseback tours with warm and experienced guides so that people of all riding abilities can enjoy discovering the Alpine Valleys on horseback. With a dynamic and colourful herd of mountain-bred horses, there’s sure to be one for you! Saddle up and explore.

Pack Tours

We take you on a journey into the highest points of the Victorian High Country, a journey into another time and world, on horses mountain-bred. Ascending the High Country on one of many rocky spurs, we arrive on the plains and peaks in a magical place above the clouds, where endless blue horizons fill the frame. Your horse’s ears are a guiding compass across the pretty plains of billy buttons, watched on by the ancient snowgum bonsai, twisted from icy winter winds. Take a deep breath of clean mountain air – can you hear the gentle trickle of spring water melting from the rocks? This is where the Murray River is born. Your horse confidently traverses the hand-cut track to an end of day tucker bag. Warm your back and belly by the fireside before finding a place under the blazing starlit southern sky to roll out your swag and watch the southern cross roll over.
